For Immediate Release - 20th July 2008

Atlantic City Super Fight ‘Casino Battle Royale’ Planned For November.

Following on from his hugely successful inaugural fight night in Salem, New Jersey last month, promoter Jarvis Robinson and his Fight Night Productions team are in the process of organizing an even bigger event ‘Casino Battle Royale’ which will take place in Atlantic City in November 2008.

Jarvis is currently putting together what will be a star studded night and to this end approaches have already been made to a brace of boxing’s biggest names including two former world champions to headline the event.

Later this week one of his team, Gianluca ‘Rio’ Di Caro, flies to London, England for discussions with various British and European fighters as the card will have a distinct international feel about it with around half the card consisting of fighters from outside the USA, mainly from South America and Europe.

On the planned spectacular Jarvis says “We will be putting on a real show, something special for boxing fans. Just like our Salem fight night it’s going to be non-stop action. We have already started a national and world-wide search for suitable opponents. We intend to find the most exciting fighters we can for this special event, ones that will give 100% from start to finish. Don’t think that means there will be no local favorites though. No way would we ignore committed, entertaining fighters like Mark ‘Oaktree’ Brown and Willie ‘For Real’ Williams who put on an awesome show at Salem. The same as I wouldn’t ignore any local fighter who is suitable. We want to make sure that both opponents in each fight are evenly matched not only by record but also by their entertainment value.”

Further announcements will follow over the coming few weeks as the location and fighters are secured.

Editor’s Notes:

On the 21st June 2008 Jarvis Robinson’s Fight Night Productions organization held their first event in Salem, New Jersey.

Headlining the night were Heavyweights Mark ‘Oaktree’ Brown from Salem, New Jersey and Ralph ‘Wild Wild’ West of Louisville, Kentucky. The match was decided with a second round knockout of Ralph ‘Wild Wild’ West.

The co-feature pitted Alfred ‘AK 47’ Kinsey from Atlantic City, NJ against Willie ‘For real’ Williams of Baltimore, Maryland in Light Heavyweight Battle which was stopped when the doctor declared Alfred ‘AK 47’ Kinsey was not able to continue.

Prior to this a Featherweight battle of the ‘Jersey Boys’ between Victor Valenzuela of Passiac, NJ and Byrne Green of Vineyard, NJ took place. This fight went all the way and was looking like it would be declared a draw when in the seconds Valenuela landed a peach of a left hook that dropped Green.

Another close fought match preceded this between Junior Middleweights Eberto Median from Irvington, New Jersey and Ashantie Hendrickson of Medford, New York. This one went all the way with Median taking the win by majority decision.
