I plan on going to this as long as it's not sold out.
Anyone interested in joining me? Dick? Knuckles?

Dr-I’m trying like the devil to rearrange my schedule so that I can attend this event. They pulled a hat trick getting Kelly, Ray and Coach Tressel together at the same time.

I’ll know by tomorrow afternoon if I’m in.

Let me know, I'm ready, just don't want to go solo if I can avoid it.

I will be attending.
There are 800 seats sold and it holds 1,200
I was told by an employee at the place where it is that tickets will be sold at the door and I should be able to get in.

Dr-I'm not going to be able to make it tonight...I couldn't pull this one off with my basketball schedule. Anyhow, have a blast and let me know if you need any help finding the place...it's very easy to get to from the Cleveland area via the Ohio Turnpike.

WOW
What a great evening, damn worth it and I'm glad I went.
We got to hear Coach Tressel speak about having the team watch Pavlik fight. Kelly was with the team on Friday and they watched the 7th round together when he ko'ed Taylor. He was then on the sideline with them Saturday.
I had the honor of talking to Kelly,shaking his hand, and getting an autograph. I met his father as well.
Truly classy people, simply amazing.

The rematch will be February 16th at the MGM GRand in Las Vegas, that's straight from Bob Arum who also spoke at the event.

Dr-Thanks for sharing the pics, how did Kelly's hands look?

I heard from a coworker that the letter Dante DelSignore read was a real tearjerker.

Also, is the rematch at the MGM or Mirage? Today the Vindicator says Mirage, but previous reports were MGM. The bad thing about that weekend as far as flights and rooms in Vegas is that it's Valentine's Day weekend.

You could see the cuts on Kelly's hand and we were told he got 8 stitches from people who know him well.
Bob Arum said the MGM Grand last night.
My room is booked at Harrah's already and wasn't too bad of a price.
I've been there many times and that helped.

The event was actually a fund raiser for Dante and the evening as a whole was amazing.
Some great moments and speeches.
Dante was great and Boom Boom stole the show I think with his speech.

Fantastic.

Tickets go on sale Saturday for the rematch

Ticket prices are not as steep as I had anticipated considering this is a huge fight in 08 and in Vegas and on PPV. If the undercard is as good as the first fight this could one hell of a bargain.

My hotel room is booked from Thursday thru Sunday.
Hopefully, I can score a press pass like I did for the first one.
If not, I'm still going.
