Jones-Bruseles sold out in AC

The Top Rank Live! event featuring welterweights Mike Jones and Henry Bruseles is sold out at Bally’s Atlantic City on Saturday, Feb 27. The big card will be televised live on FSN, Bob Arum said today. “We are getting big crowds for all of our Top Rank Live! boxing cards since the series got underway on Fox earlier this year,” said Bob Arum of Top Rank. “It’s a very hot series. Fighters want to be on it and fans want to see it. The key is to make strong, competitive fights which our matchmakers Bruce Trampler and Brad Goodman are doing.” Mike Jones, promoted by Russsell Peltz, of Philadelphia is undefeated and a huge ticket seller. He is in a tough match against Henry Bruseles of Puerto Rico. Kendall Holt, the former world champion, from Paterson, N.J., is featured on the undercard. Years ago Top Rank promoted big ballroom fights at Bally’s featuring champions such as Marvelous Marvin Hagler and Alexis Arguello. “There’s a lot of boxing history in this Bally’s ballroom,” Arum said. Top Rank and Peltz Boxing are co-promoting.
