VegasChamp Boxing (formerly VegasStar Boxing) is still moving forward! The Las Vegas based Management group headed by Bill Nelson and Marvin Simeon has assembled a talented roster of up and coming prospects mixed with a few former Champions and contenders that have turned to VegasChamp for one last blaze of glory. Nelson comes from a boxing family who has a combined over 50 years in the industry. From Youngstown, Ohio Nelson now resides in Las Vegas and is a court reporter. Simeon, a Las Vegas attorney who works out at Mayweather’s gym in Vegas, persuaded Nelson to get back involved in boxing and last year they received there boxing Manager’s license and hit the ground running as they signed some hidden talent.
The roster is getting so big that there is in the distant future a possibility that Nelson and Simeon could attempt for a Promoter’s license if they can secure the proper financial backing? Nonetheless, keep your eye out for VegasChamp fighters at an arena near you!
Among the VegasChamp roster is Super Middleweight Joey Spina, 8 time women’s champion Melissa Hernandez and undefeated Featherweight Ricardo Lucio.
