Marc Livitz traces his love for the fight game back to when he was very young. It all started as he sat and listened to his great uncle's tales of boxing during the Second World War for the US Army. Originally from Houston, TX. He's always open to discussing the sweet science with just about anyone and absolutely thinks fight night is the center of the universe. He is an avid reader about the history of the sport and hopes to one day pen a book of his own.
