QUEENS, NY (JULY 17, 2014) – On Saturday, September 20th, 2014, “International Fight Night” returns to Queens, New York as New Legend Boxing celebrates their 2nd Anniversary of bringing professional boxing to Resorts World Casino New York City. The event will showcase a host of local up and coming prospects from the New York metropolitan area. Professional boxers, who hail from the United States, Ireland, Guyana, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico, to name a few, will be featured in an action packed, ten bout card, dubbed “International Fight Night”.

Since their inception, New Legend Boxing has strived to provide boxing fans with top class entertainment in a world class venue. “We have built a strong following over the last few years,” said Felipe Gomez of New Legend Boxing. “People like the idea of coming to a local casino and being able to enjoy the excitement up close and personal.”

-ArneK. :

I have no clue if Frank Galarza can fight a lick. The fact that he won the vacant New York State light middleweight title and then captured the interim WBC Latino light middleweight title tells me absolutely nothing. I know that boxing promoters have forever contrived phony titles to dress up their promotions, but nowadays I would argue that it's counterproductive. It merely calls attention to the fact there there are too many dubious title-holders. The venue is interesting. It begs the question of where boxing in the U.S. would be today if not for gambling joints. Depending on the source, the Resorts World racino has anywhere from 2200 to more than 5000 video lottery terminals -- slot machines in the vernacular. I find it so ironic that Resorts World is only about 10 miles from LaGuardia Airport, named for a zealous anti-gambling crusader. The most iconic image of the "Little Flower" is that of the fellow on the barge fiendishly attacking a pile of slot machines with a sledgehammer. Times change.
