Transitioning from Virginia to Georgia, is when Quis (as he is known to family) gravitated to the sport of boxing. Marquis graduated from Newton High School, Covington, GA. In 2010. With his love for boxing and his desire to further his education Marquis is currently training for upcoming events and due to graduate from Georgia Career Institute in August 2013 for massage therapy.
