“Hassle in the Castle”
Very special professional boxing benefit gala to be held May 7 at Oheka Castle in Huntington, New York
On Friday, May 7, 2010, at the incredible Oheka Castle in Huntington, New York, X-Cel Worldwide and promoter Nick Garone, in Association with Bang Productions and the legendary Lou Duva, are proud to present a star-studded professional boxing benefit gala honoring the Shea Megale Trust for SMA and the Elena Melius Foundation.
Much more than an ordinary night at the fights, “Hassle in the Castle” will feature six world-class professional boxing bouts, as well as countless celebrity guests, high-fashion models, and a special tribute to legendary trainer and manager Lou Duva.
In the main event, power punching two-time former Super Middleweight World Champion Byron “Gator” Mitchell (28-5-1, 21 KOs) will face “Next Great Champ” winner Otis “Triple OG” Griffin (21-6-2, 8 KOs) in a 12-round duel for the USBA Light Heavyweight Title.
In the main supporting bout, always-exciting Bahamian lightweight sensation Meacher Major “Pain” (16-4-1, 14 KOs) will return to the ring for another of his trademark “kill or be killed” shootouts.
Also scheduled for action are Maryland-based welterweight Emmanuel “Tranzformer” Taylor (6-0, 5 KOs), and Patterson, New Jersey’s Elvin “KoKo” Sanchez (3-0, 3 KOs) and two more fights that are currently TBA.
The all-star celebrity guest list reads like a Hall of Fame induction ceremony list and includes legendary middleweight champion Jake “Raging Bull” LaMotta, heavyweight immortals Evander “The Real Deal” Holyfield and “Smokin” Joe Frazier, all-time pound-for-pound legend Pernell “Sweet Pea” Whitaker, boxing historian and well-known spokesman Burt Sugar, celebrated welterweight king Emile Griffith, former heavyweight title challenger “Gentleman” Gerry Cooney, former welterweight champion Mark Breland, former super lightweight champion “Vicious” Vivian Harris, former Olympian and heavyweight contender Tyrell Biggs and the great Lou Duva himself, who will be honored for his 88th birthday.
Between bouts, high-fashion models will showcase Carla's Closet Swimsuits, as seen in 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
Oheka Castle is the second largest residence in the United States and is an architectural wonder to behold in itself.
