World Class Boxing is going to come to a world class venue as Championship Title Boxing brings a great night of action to Resorts World Casino in New York on 2/14/15.

If you or someone you love is a boxing fan this is an event you do not want to miss.

The Co-Featured bout will have the popular Mike Lee who is known for his Subway sandwich commercials puts his undefeated streak on the line (13-0, 7 KO’s) takes on former Bellator and MMA fighter Gary Tapuosa who is looking to use the many fighting style skills he has in his arsenal to hand Lee his first loss.
