Go HERE for more photos of this event by STEVEN EKEROVICH and TAG YOURSELF and YOUR FRIENDS!

Last night, we got to sit front row at one of the most exciting events I've been to in NYC, care of Steven.  The mega fight night at BBKings only happens every 8-12 weeks, and last night's brought in the big name attendees.  Mostly to watch Tor Hamer the Heavyweight from NYC who is considered a strong contender to be a future World Heavyweight Champion.  Promoted by Lou DiBella who produced the evening, and has quite the story himself...

Pauli Malignaggi

Lou DiBella is currently one of the most important boxing promoters in the country.  He is Brooklyn born of Italian American parents.  After attending Harvard Law School, he worked in programming for HBO until he started his own Entertainment Production Company, DiBella Entertainment. His largest name boxer of late is Pauli Malignaggi (pictured from last night at left) who, until a few weeks ago, was the Jr. Welterweight World Champion.

We had so much fun sitting ring side at this event and are looking forward to the next one. Thanks Steven!  Browse through more photos below...
