Lightweight fighter Bryce Mills (8-1, 4 KOs), of Liverpool, NY, returns to Philadelphia to face Larry Fryers (11-5-1, 4 KOs), of Yonkers, NY, in a six-round lightweight bout, as part of a 7-bout card at Parx Casino® in Bensalem, PA on Thursday, September 1st. Mills was victorious in his last fight in Philadelphia at Live! Casino and Hotel (February 24, 2022).
Mills is a lifelong martial artist that began to train at the age of five. He has competed in both kickboxing and boxing in his career, but for the last four years, has solely focused on boxing. Boxing is where his passion is and where he wants to pursue his professional career.
When asked about his dreams in boxing he said, “I want to go as far as I can possibly go. If that means being a future Hall of Famer or winning world championships, then that’s fine with me. I just want to know that I left everything I have in the ring and gave it the best possible shot I could give.”
Mills is an ultra-competitor that just loves to compete. Win, lose or draw, he is going to go out there and fight hard. That is the only way he knows how to fight.
His opponent, Larry Fryers, is no joke as an opponent, as he has a winning record and is the more experienced of the two fighters. Fryers has fought tough competition in his career, with the likes of Samuel Teah, John Bauza, and highly touted prospect Xander Zayas.
How would you describe your fighting style?
“I believe it’s a versatile style. I can fight in all areas, but my primary style is to push the pace and bring the fight to my opponent. I know when the going gets rough and it gets later in the rounds, I’m going to have the extra in the tank and will be able to push out my opponent to get the win.”
Did you learn anything about yourself after your last fight?
“I always knew I could push myself to that level and I have the extra gas in the tank and the heart that my opponent doesn’t have to go the distance and come out with a victory. That last fight was really one of my biggest tests to date and was a step up in competition for me. That was a fight that kind of solidified me that I am made for this, and this is what I should be doing. I took a step up in competition and passed the test. So, maybe this next opponent is even a little better and the next is even better. I just need to keep passing these tests as the fights go on.”
