At this past Sunday’s annual “Salute To Philly Boxing” Awards Dinner, Joey Eye Boxing Promotions was selected at the 2011 Philadelphia Promoter of the Year.
Joey Eye Boxing, which has been promoting fights for the better part of a decade, made a big splash in 2011 by promoting five big events at Harrahs in Chester and signed two of the most popular fighters in the area in Tony Ferrante and Victor Vasquez.
“I would like to thank everyone for this award”, said promoter Joey “Eye” Intrieri. “I want to thank my partner David Feldman, matchmaker Nick Tiberi, PR man Marc Abrams as well Victor and Tony".
“We have some great plans for 2012 and February looks to be a huge month as Victor is fighting Dorin Spivey on February 4th in Atlantic City. When Victor wins that fight, he will be ranked by the WBA and will be this close to fighting for world title”.
“On February 24th, we are back at Harrahs where Tony will be fighting in his biggest fight when he takes on former world title challenger Omar Sheika. When these guys win these fights, it puts us in position for some major things”.
Tickets for February 24th at Harrahs can be purchased for $100 (VIP); $65 (Ringside) and $45 (General Admission) and can be purchased at the Harrahs Chester Gift Shop; By calling Joey Eye (267-304-9399); David Feldman (610-291-0806); 800-480-8020 or on www.webtix.net
