Uncasville, CT (October 19) – Mohegan Sun and Main Events are proud to announce the pilot event of a new boxing series entitled “Mohegan Sun’s Rising Stars Boxing Series” which will debut on November 26 at the Uncas Ballroom at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. The series will be presented by Mohegan Sun and Main Events and feature boxing prospects from New England and around the world. Tickets start at $50 and are available now through Ticketmaster and the Mohegan Sun box office.
This exciting joint-venture will highlight up-and-coming prospects who are looking to be the next big boxing superstar. Mohegan Sun and Main Events hope this series will allow local prospects, as well as hot international talent, the opportunity to showcase their skills to an already loyal boxing fan base at Mohegan Sun.
The debut event will feature local prospects including Cassius Chaney a heavyweight from New London, CT, Kevin Asmat a featherweight from Union City, NJ and Reinaldo Graceski a light heavyweight from Springfield, MA and international talent such as Enriko Gogokhia a junior middleweight from Ukraine and Madiyar Ashkeyev a junior middleweight from Kazakhstan. The full card will be announced shortly.
According to Main Events’ CEO Kathy Duva, “For the past couple years it has been difficult for promoters to find a platform to showcase their young prospects. Mohegan Sun has a strong tradition of hosting great boxing. It seemed like a perfect marriage to bring this exciting club-style series to the fans at Mohegan Sun. We look forward to showcasing many talented young fighters looking to be the next big thing in boxing. This first event will be a bit of a test run, so we hope to announce more details and a real schedule for the series in the near future.”
“I am thrilled to have Main Events back at Mohegan Sun,” said Michael Mazzulli, Director of Athletic Regulations for the Mohegan Tribe. “Throughout the years they have promoted great fight cards and as a regulator I look forward to seeing some great local talent. The 4 and 6 round fights interest me the greatest, to be one of the first regulators to see a future world champ is a great honor.”
