(Queens, NY) – Four-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield and Real Deal Sports, partnering with Resorts World Casino New York City, brought their first card to New York City this past weekend. 

The event, where more than 2,000 people were in attendance, showed off Resorts World’s Central Park Event Space, a newly renovated 50,000 sq. ft. event hall on the casino’s third floor that handled the night with ease. The event space is the ideal location for large events such as boxing events, tradeshows, concerts and more.

In the main event, Kemahl “The Hitman” Russell took down Ian “Young General” Green in a 7th round decision that was stopped by the referee in the Junior NABF Middleweight Championship.

New York State middleweight champion native Devaun Lee knocked out challenger Giovanni Lorenzo in a heated four-round match, and New York natives Saleh Almulaki, Cesar Francis, and Edgar Berlanga all defeated their opponents in first round knockouts.

Other winners include: Bowie, Maryland fighter Greg Outlaw, Brooklyn boxer Khalid Twaiti, and still-undefeated Mexican welterweight prospect Julian Sosa.
