Niagara Falls Abuzz About Big Boxing
Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada: Niagara Falls is picturesque and awe inspiring looking at the unimaginable amounts of water plunging over the edge…
It’s a surreal view with its cold, crisp water vaporized into mist, making the most beautiful of rainbows in just the right lighting. More amazing than you would have dreamed.
It’s a favorite travel destination the world over, and the Honeymoon Capital of the World.
Now, turn around and look behind you…a skyline of epic proportions has brewed over past decades in Niagara Falls, on both sides, but definitely more prominently on the Canadian side of the border.
Tall Fallsview hotels and enormous casinos mark the skyline with lights of all colors at night. Every Friday night at 10:00 pm, there are fireworks that light the sky, not to mention the light & laser shows put on.
That’s exciting all on its own. A casino city with a Wonder of the World in the backyard?
Doesn’t that sound like a Boxing Wonderland of sorts? That’s what James Phelps, boxing promoter & coach, of B.A.M. Niagara Boxing Club thinks.
Bringing Big Boxing up close and personal to the city of Niagara Falls is what he’s doing. Straight from Washington, D.C., the upcoming arrival of Mr. Gary Russell Jr., the undefeated American professional featherweight boxer, at 23-0, sparks interest in the area.
Does this mean the Niagara Region will get a taste of Vegas proportions?
In essence, Niagara Falls is Vegas with a view. ~ Patrice Lafayette
Surely, Niagara would welcome a major boxing match at one of the casinos that light up the night sky, for both entertainment value and their economic climate with decreased tourism in winter months.
Is a big match in the works? Only time will tell.
