The Boxing Illustrated Championship fights will be monthly fights in 12 weight divisions and will all; be staged in the showroom of the CasaBlanca Resort Hotel Casino in Mesquite, Nevada. The CasaBlanca Resort Hotel Casino Event Center was the home to the recent Golden Gloves Junior National Championships to decide the winners in the 8-16 year old age groups.
Boxing Illustrated.Net will not only be the major sponsor of the monthly championship fights from the CasaBlanca Resort Hotel Casino, but will also present the Championship Belts in the 12 weight classes. Ring Magazine has also returned to this tradition in recent years, after several decades of several ‘alphabet soup’ sanctioning bodies presenting such championships.
In addition all fights seen on TVS Boxing.Net will also be available for download and on DVD.
