New Jersey's premier amateur fight promotion, the Asylum Fight League, has found a new home at the Trump Taj Mahal. AFL president and CEO Carl Mascarenhas and Taj Mahal executives worked out a deal that will keep the Asylum Fight League at the Taj Mahal for the rest of 2013 and all of 2014.
The Trump Taj Mahal is one of the hottest casino hotels in Atlantic City, and it is kicking up the intensity with the addition of the Asylum Fight League.
"As a promoter," Carl Mascarenhas said, "I have an opportunity to work with a lot of great people, and I am truly excited to work with the staff at the Taj Mahal in Atlantic city. They run an exceptional venue and have pulled out the stops to welcome Asylum to the Taj."
The first show at the new venue will take place on September 28, 2013, with Asylum Fight League 42. As always, this card is stacked with the best MMA talent on the East Coast, and Mascarenhas, who also acts as matchmaker couldn't be happier the lineup.
"We have another action packed fight night including two title fights," he said. "Keith Knudsen vs. Bill-Borawski, and Atlantic City's Travis Spadafora vs. Atlantic City's undefeated Kevin Perez."
In addition there is also a featured female fight between Bridget McEliece and Clarissa Padua, which is destined to bring the crowd to its feet.
As always, the Asylum Fight League intends to wow the audience with the best MMA action anywhere.
As Carl Mascarenhas says: "You will have a seat but will only need the edge because these fights are truly insane."
If you've ever been to an Asylum show, you'll know those words ring true. And if not, make sure to check out this latest event at the Taj Mahal.
"This is our 42nd show," Carl said, "and it will be a killer. Asylum is number one for a reason: We are INSANE!"
Tickets can be purchased at the Asylum Fight League Website. The show takes place on Saturday, September 28, 2013. Doors open at 7PM and the action begins at 8PM.
