Come Party With Boxing’s Legends on April 11th

The Nevada Boxing Hall Of Fame will hold its first event of 2014,  the “Party With Boxing’s Legends” fundraiser on Friday, April 11, in the beautiful Havana Room at The New Tropicana Las Vegas. The event, designed to bring the boxing community together, starts at 8pm with tickets priced at $35 presale and $45 at the door. Light hors d’oeuvres and soft drinks will be served with a cash bar available.

Already confirmed to attend are 7 former World Champions including 2014 Inductee Cornelius Boza-Edwards, and 2013 Inductee Mike “The Body Snatcher” McCallum. Other champions on hand include Sugar Shane Mosley, Zab Judah, Ishe Smith, Kevin Kelley and Clarence “Bones” Adams. Two NVBHOF Inductees in the “Officials” class, referees Richard Steele and Kenny Bayless will be in attendance to speak to fans, as will Trainer Inductee Miguel Diaz. Representing the boxing broadcast galaxy will be 2013 Inductee Al Bernstein of Showtime, Harold Lederman of HBO fame, and Inductee Col. Bob Sheridan of international renown. From the world of entertainment, gifted R&B voice “Lloyd” will attend, and the party will be hosted by radio star DJ Nina 9.

NVBHOF Founder and President Rich Marotta said, “We are excited to kick off our 2014 events and especially thrilled to be hosting this event at the all-new Tropicana resort in Las Vegas. Fans will absolutely be blown away by the Havana Room – not only is it one of the most elegant and unique Las Vegas event venues, but it’s the perfect backdrop for this night of fun and fundraising. The event will be a combination ‘meet and greet’, autograph and photo session with music mixed in, and a great raffle for boxing memorabilia. With the Pacquiao-Bradley fight the next night, and the ESPN Friday show earlier that night, we are hoping boxing fans in Vegas take advantage of this unique opportunity to engage with boxing legends up close.”

Details for advance ticket purchases will be announced this week. Details for the annual August induction Ceremony/Dinner Gala will also be revealed soon.
