Current pandemic restrictions have certainly put a damper on live fight shows in many regions around the country. But, for promoter Egypt X, of the Las Vegas-based “100 Entertainment Group” – no crowd, no venue, no problem; he is still planning a great night at the fights as “Project 100 Health” presents a night of (virtual) boxing as the initiative for Mental Health.

 

Egypt is currently developing programs to address the multitude of health concerns and conditions related to trauma connected to post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety and a host of other medical concerns that are afflicting members of society at all levels, certainly not which the least of are professional athletes in contact sports.

 

Based in Nevada, but operating in other states such as California, Texas, Arizona and Florida, Egypt is behind a very interesting concept that is upcoming on January 24th that will see gamers and boxers meet for a great night of virtual entertainment featuring some of the game’s best, both hosting and participating.

 

Egypt’s “Project 100 Health” is presenting a night of fights raising awareness and support for the multitude of conditions and illnesses in regard to mental health.

 

Hosted by former world champion, and recent Florida Boxing Hall of Fame inductee, Antonio “Magic Man” Tarver, the evening will see many great fighters and celebrities coming together. Among them are Ohio’s former WBC and WBO middleweight champion Kelly “The Ghost” Pavlik, former WBO world super lightweight titlist DeMarcus “Chop Chop” Corley and Australia’s Billy “The Kid” Dib who is a former IBF world featherweight champion, to name just a few.

 

Working from all X-Box platforms, celebrity fighters will be going up against other players, fighters and fans, who are participating. In short, gamers have a chance to (virtually) go head-to-head with some of boxing’s biggest stars who will be challenging them on-line.

 

“It’s going to be a great night that is fun, interactive and exciting for the players as they get to challenge themselves against actual boxing world champions”, said Egypt, himself a fast-rising, major player in the world of promotion. “It’s great because the game has got a variety of former world champion boxers, like Kelly Pavlik, who is taking part in the event. So, the real Kelly Pavlik can actually challenge, or just be, the virtual Kelly Pavlik on event night”, he continued. “It’s going to be a great night”.

 

So what fans and players expect?

 

“To put it simply, we are hosting a free virtual boxing exhibition on the retro classic & last boxing game Fight Night Champion (EA Sports 2011). We will have our undercards, prime time matchups, and main events for pro champions and fighters from combat entertainment facing off against actual pro gamers and fans”, said Egypt. “The night is hosted by a true legend in the game, the “Magic Man”, Antonio Tarver, who is doing commentary. We’ll also have fights from real boxing stars like Kelly Pavlik and Billy Dib, multiple world champion Devon “The Great” Alexander, we’ve got former world champion Clarence “Bones” Adams involved”, said Egypt, “lots of sports and entertainment stars”, he said.

 

“These guys, these legends, have been so great to work with. Everything just flowed so easily. Connecting with these great fighters has been so easy and smooth. It’s going to be a great night for fans, and the fighters, who are excited. And, it‘s all for a great cause raising awareness and putting a spotlight on the need for support and programs in the fight against mental illness”.
