“The first Detroit Brawl was something to be very proud of,” said Dmitriy Salita. “The city’s businesses got behind it, many of Detroit’s boxing greats were in the house including Tommy Hearns, Hilmer Kenty and Cornelius Bundrage. It had an old-school feel that night, bringing back the glory days of boxing in Motown. The fights were exciting and the fans were very enthusiastic. It was so successful in so many ways we are not going to alter the formula one bit for the second event. We’re coming back to the beautiful Masonic Temple to work with their magnificent staff. We’ve got Greektown onboard already. They are the best of the best of Detroit casinos. Plus we’ve got some new sponsors to announce and a terrific lineup of fights we are working hard on finalizing.
