“I was excited to fight at the then-new Trump Taj Mahal on the undercard of Thomas Hearns and Michael Olajide. I was so pumped I went out and stopped my opponent Jose Luis Estevan in the 5th round who was the local favorite. The crowd was great, and I remember walking through the crowd and giving them high fives on the way out. It was my first great experience fighting in a historic city of legendary fights.” – James Toney
“My Atlantic City boxing experience was like no other. The lights, glitter, and fan base enthusiasm always brought my game to a new level,” said Dave Tiberi
