Press Release / February 3, 2011 - 5:55pm

Richmond, BC: Rumble at the Rock VIII is set to rock the River Rock Casino Resort on Saturday March 12, 2011. Once again, West Coast Promotions has teamed up with the River Rock Casino Resort to present another amazing boxing event at the River Rock Show Theatre.

Special guest of honour at the Rumble at the Rock VIII will be the former World Light Welterweight Champion ‘Irish’ Micky Ward. Ward has recently been profiled in the award winning feature film ‘The Fighter’ starring Mark Wahlberg. The movie captures Mickey’s professional boxing career. Ward will be holding a special q and a session followed by a public meet and greet (photo opportunity) for his fans.

In the ongoing pursuit of showcasing the very best boxers out of Western Canada, Rumble at the Rock VIII will present Vancouver’s own Canadian Light Heavyweight champion, Junior Moar, who will defend his title.

The card will also feature up and coming local stars that will be fighting hard to take wins so that they themselves may contend for Canadian, and International, belts in the future.
