“Dancing With the Stars”’ Dovolani Is A Fight Guy

HOLLYWOOD, CA – World Champion ballroom pro Tony Dovolani of Dancing With the Stars and reality star Melissa Rycroft have made it to the finale of the hit ABC TV show, and will dance for the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy tonight.

Off the dance floor, Dovolani and his sports management company, Dovolani Boxing have a strong interest in the sport of boxing. So much so that he’s become the manager of professional cruiserweight Nasi Hani, 6-0, 3 KOs, a 29-year old fighter from Macedonia who is scheduled to next fight on the undercard of the January 19th NBC Sports Network Fight Night boxing show at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT.

Dovolani hopes that tonight he and Melissa can “float like a butterfly” enough to impress the judges and home viewing audience, and finally bring home the elusive DWTS Mirror Ball Trophy. After that, he’ll turn his attention on his fighter’s next start.

“Tonight’s ‘Dancing With the Stars’ final is like a boxing world title fight for us,” Dovolani said. “I hope to guide Melissa to the championship in the ballroom just like I plan to help Nasi Hani achieve his dream of becoming a champion in the boxing ring.”

Brook is returning to the 147 pound weight class after his now famous move to middleweight for a clash with Gennady Golovkin that resulted in his first career loss. Brook won the IBF belt back in August of 2014 when he defeated rugged Shawn Porter to take the belt back home to England with him and he has made three successful title defenses. In Spence Jr. Brook will be facing a 2012 American Olympian who is making his first attempt at a world title with a perfect 21-0 professional record. Despite not earning a medal and the bad reputation the 2012 U.S. Olympic team has, Spence Jr may be ready to put all that behind him.   Brook vs Spence Jr Duel Saturday in Sheffield The Brook vs Spence Jr is one of two world title fights on the card as popular George Groves faces Fedor Chudinov for the WBA world belt at 168 pounds and three other regional title bouts are planned in support.
