D’MITRIUS ‘BIG MEECH’ BALLARD VS. ELIAS ‘LATIN KID’ ESPADAS TO KICK OFF ATLANTIC CITY BOXING HALL OF FAME WEEKEND

GOLDEN BOY PARTNER BERNARD ‘THE ALIEN’ HOPKINS TO BE INDUCTED

Tickets Still on Sale! 

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (June 5, 2019): Golden Boy is proud to announce that the 10-round middleweight battle between D’Mitrius “Big Meech” Ballard (20-0, 13 KOs) and Elias “Latin Kid” Espadas (18-4, 13 KOs) will kick off the Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame Weekend. The fights will take place on Thursday, June 20 at Ocean Casino Resort/Ovation Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. The event will be streamed live globally on Facebook Watch via the Golden Boy Fight Night Page

Golden Boy is also excited to announce that Business Partner Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins will be inducted into the 2019 Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame. The ACBHOF is dedicated to preserving the rich boxing history of Atlantic City through live historical curation, exhibits, legendary boxing stars, and personality appearances. Hopkins is a legendary figure who fought in Atlantic City an astounding 19 times, and he will be in appearance for the entire weekend as the city honors his historic trajectory.

“I’m grateful for the honor of being inducted in the Hall of Fame in a city where I had my first professional fight,” said Bernard Hopkins. “I fought against a guy named Clinton Mitchell, who was an outstanding Golden Gloves prospect at the time. I lost by decision, but I learned a lesson that night. I learned something. If you look at my record, you’ll see that I left the sport for almost two years. Most people would not have come back from that. Most people don’t want to fail, so they don’t try. As far as I’m concerned, I didn’t have a choice. I told myself, ‘Either I make it in this boxing business, or I’m going to die.’ That night at Atlantic City, where I later fought many more times, changed everything. I am profoundly grateful to be in this position, to be inducted in the Hall of Fame of a city where this journey started.”

The Hall of Fame weekend will feature events on Friday and Saturday, culminating with the induction ceremony on Sunday. The list of inductees also includes legendary pugilists such as Roberto “Mano de Piedra” Duran, Tim “Terrible” Witherspoon, Iran “The Blade” Barkley, Virgil “Quicksilver” Hill, John “Eastern Beast” Brown, and “Irish” Micky Ward. For a full list of inductees, visit their official website here.

“Every year the Induction Weekend Celebration gets more exciting,” said Ray McCLine, President and Founder of the Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame. “Again, we have an excellent class of inductees who have made major contributions in making Atlantic City a top boxing destination around the world. I wish to thank Roxanne Passarella CEO of FantaSea and 2019 Honoree Bernard Hopkins who both played a major role in bringing this exciting event together with Golden Boy and Ocean Casino Resort.”

“The City of Atlantic City has a long and rich history with the sport of boxing,” said Frank Gilliam Mayor of Atlantic City. “The 3rd annual Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame will begin on June 20 with a Golden Boy Fight Night at Ocean Casino Resort and culminate with the induction of Bernard Hopkins into the Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame. The City of Atlantic City is looking forward to an epic weekend of boxing and entertainment. I want to personally thank Ray McCline for his vision and for bringing boxing back to Atlantic City.”

The undercard of the June 20 show will feature some of Golden Boy’s best talent, along with local boxers from New Jersey.

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (June 6, 2019) The iconic and acclaimed American rock-and-roll trio The STRAY CATS, founded by Brian Setzer (guitar, vocals), Lee Rocker (bass, vocals) and Slim Jim Phantom (drums, vocals), are celebrating their 40th anniversary with a new album titled 40 and tour that includes a stop at Ovation Hall at Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City on Saturday, August 3 at 8 p.m. 

The STRAY CATS titled the album 40 to mark their first new album in 26 years. It was released May 24 via Surfdog Records, distributed by BMG (CD, vinyl, digital) and features songs like “Cat Fight (Over A Dog Like Me),” “Rock It Off,” “Mean Pickin’ Mama” and “Devil Train.” 

The band begins their select U.S. dates on August 3 with a show at the spectacular entertainment and concert venue, Ovation Hall in Atlantic City.

About The STRAY CATS:
The STRAY CATS put Rockabilly music back on the record charts in the early ’80s scoring several big hits on both sides of the Atlantic thanks to a striking visual 1950’s style brought “up to date” with exaggerated pompadours and colorful tattoos and as well as genuine musical chops that evoked the best players of rockabilly’s original heyday. Formed in 1979, by guitarist/vocalist Brian Setzer, upright bass player Lee Rocker and drummer Slim Jim Phantom in the Long Island town of Massapequa, NY the trio shared a love for Rockabilly music.  After banging around New York for a few months, in the summer of 1980, and seeing a pompadoured kid on the cover of UK magazine NME, they hopped a plane to London where a rockabilly revival movement was just beginning to emerge. Their massive hits and videos include “Runaway Boys,” “Rock This Town,” “Stray Cat Strut,” “(She’s) Sexy + 17,” and “I Won’t Stand in Your Way.”

World Long Drive Season Continues with Atlantic City Boardwalk Bash; Airs Wednesday, June 5 at 6 P.M. ET Live on Golf Channel

world long drive ocean casino resortSummer Stretch of WLD Tour Events Includes Atlantic City (N.J.); Rochester, N.Y. (July) & Kingsport, Tenn. (August), Leading up to World Championship

ORLANDO, Fla. (May 30, 2019) World Long Drive kicks off its summer stretch of the season next week, with the Atlantic City Boardwalk Bash in New Jersey, which will culminate live on GOLF Channel on Wednesday, June 5 at 6 p.m. ET. The event will take place at Atlantic City Country Club for the second consecutive year, in partnership with the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, and it marks the third of six televised World Long Drive Tour events in 2019, culminating with the Volvik World Long Drive Championship in September. 

GOLF Channel’s live telecast next Wednesday (6-8 p.m. ET, also airing live on Sky Sports Golf in Europe) will feature the four women and eight men having advanced from preliminary rounds earlier in the competition.

“The CRDA is pleased to partner with the World Long Drive Association for the Atlantic City Boardwalk Bash again this year,” said CRDA Executive Director Matt Doherty. “GOLF Channel’s live telecast of the event’s conclusion will be a great opportunity to showcase our destination to the World Long Drive audience, and to golf enthusiasts everywhere.”

The Atlantic City Boardwalk Bash commences the summer stretch of the World Long Drive season, followed by the Roc City Rumble (Rochester, N.Y., July 24) and the Tennessee Big Shots benefiting Niswonger Children’s Hospital (Kingsport, Tenn., Aug. 12), leading up to the Volvik World Long Drive Championship (Sept. 3-4).

The Open Division field in Atlantic City will consist of current No. 1 ranked competitor in the world Justin James (Jacksonville, Fla.), returning to competition after missing the previous event due to a back injury; No. 2 Ryan Steenberg (Rochester, N.Y.), winner of the Exchange Celebrating Service: Fort Jackson event in South Carolina earlier this month; and Maurice Allen (Pine Hills, Fla.), No. 3, and reigning Volvik World Long Drive champion. The Women’s Division is led by No. 1 ranked, defending (and three-time) world champion Phillis Meti (Auckland, New Zealand), along with five-time world champion Sandra Carlborg (Alingsas, Sweden), who will look to defend her 2018 victory at the Atlantic City Boardwalk Bash.

Serving as the host venue for the second consecutive year, Atlantic City Country Club in 2018 was voted No. 2 on Golf Advisor’s list of the top-50 public golf courses in the United States, based on nearly 150,000 reviews from golfers offering their honest feedback on the courses they enjoy playing the most. The Atlantic City Boardwalk Bash also will be staged in partnership with Ocean Resort Casino, as the official resort of the event, welcoming a number of athletes in the field who will stay at the property during the course of the competition. The resort also features the Topgolf Swing Suite, which will welcome hitters as invited guests while in town for the competition. 

COVERAGE & BROADCAST TEAM: World Long Drive events airing on GOLF Channel utilize six dedicated cameras, capturing all angles from the hitting platform and the landing grid, including a SuperMo camera as well as two crane cameras that track the ball in flight once it leaves the hitter’s clubface. Telecasts also feature a custom graphics package suited to the exorbitant swing data typically generated by hitters, tracking club speed, ball speed and apex in real-time via Trackman. Trackman technology also provides viewers with a sense of ball flight, tracing the arc of each drive from the moment of impact.

Veteran sports broadcaster Jonathan Coachman will call play-by-play and be joined by Art Sellinger – World Long Drive pioneer and two-time world champion (1986, ’91), who will provide analysis. GOLF Channel’s Jerry Foltz serve as a reporter, offering insight from the teeing platform and conducting interviews with hitters taking part in the competition.

DIGITAL & SOCIAL MEDIA COVERAGE: Fans can stay connected to the action surrounding World Long Drive by following @WorldLongDrive and @GOLFChannel on social media. GOLF Channel social media host Alexandra O’Laughlin also will be on-site contributing to the social conversation, and the live telecast will integrate social media-generated content via the hashtag, #WorldLongDrive. In addition to the latest video and highlights from on-site, WorldLongDrive.com will feature expanded editorial coverage and real-time scoring for the duration of the event. GOLF Channel Digital also will feature content leading up to and immediately following the event telecast.

QUALIFYING EVENTS OFFER SPOTS INTO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP: In addition to the six Tour events, eight official Volvik World Long Drive Championship qualifiers are being contested throughout North America in 2019, offering exemptions into the World Championship for those aspiring to compete alongside the sport’s longest hitters. Showcasing the truly global nature of World Long Drive, several additional qualifying events are being staged during the course of the season through officially sanctioned international partners, including stops in Canada, Germany, Indonesia, Japan, New Zealand, Thailand and the United Kingdom.

D’MITRIUS ‘BIG MEECH’ BALLARD TO FIGHT ELIAS ‘LATIN KID’ ESPADAS IN THE MAIN EVENT OF GOLDEN BOY FIGHT NIGHT ON FACEBOOK

WATCH WELTERWEIGHT CONTENDER EDDIE ‘EBOY’ GOMEZ TO RETURN IN CO-MAIN EVENT AGAINST SAUL ‘NAVAJO’ CORRAL

Tickets on Sale Now!

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (May 21, 2019): Pugilistic fireworks will be on display at America’s playground as undefeated contender D’Mitrius “Big Meech” Ballard (20-0, 13 KOs) will fight in a 10-round middleweight battle against experienced warrior Elias “Latin Kid” Espadas (18-4, 13 KOs) in the main event of the June 20 edition of Golden Boy Fight Nighton Facebook Watch at Ocean Casino Resort/Ovation Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. The fights will be streamed live globally on Facebook Watch via the Golden Boy Fight Night Page.

Ballard is a 26-year-old middleweight contender who boasts a decorated amateur career, where he won several national championships. In 2013, the native of Temple Hills, Maryland began his professional career with a knockout victory against Kelly Henderson. Since then, Ballard has steadily moved up the rankings, taking on tough competitors such as Victor “Sina” Fonseca and Alan “Amenaza” Campa.

“I conditioned my mind resiliently to become a world champion,” said D’Mitrius Ballard. “I then trained my body to catch up. Now I am ready to face anyone who dares to challenge my mind.”

Espadas is a 28-year-old who is coming off a stoppage victory against Gabriel Lopez to capture a regional title. Before that, Espadas fought to a controversial unanimous decision loss against then-undefeated contender and Olympic Bronze medalist Yamaguchi Falcao in July 2018. The native of Yucatan, Mexico is eager to enter world title contention, but he’ll have to use his experience if he wants to hand Ballard his first loss.

“I’m very happy for this opportunity to participate in yet another Golden Boy card,” said Elias Espadas. “It’s a good thing that my promoter [A & T Promotions] and Golden Boy were able to come to an agreement. I know that this will be a complicated fight against an undefeated fighter. But I was made for big fights, and I plan to take advantage of it. With all due respect to my opponent, I will do everything to win.”

In the co-main event, Eddie “Eboy” Gomez (22-3, 12 KOs) of the Bronx, N.Y. will return in a 10-round welterweight fight against Saul “Navajo” Corral (29-13, 19 KOs), who is originally from Sonora, Mexico but fights out of Douglas, Arizona.

Jaba Khositashvili (4-0, 2 KOs) of Akhalkalaki, Georgia will take on Gabriel Pham (10-1, 5 KOs) of Atlantic City, N.J. in a six-round super middleweight bout.

STRAIGHT NO CHASER ANNOUNCES U.S. FALL TOUR “THE OPEN BAR TOUR”

Beloved a cappella group hits the road in the fall performing
 at Ocean Casino Resort Saturday, December 21 

Atlantic City (May 3, 2019) – Atlantic Records recording group Straight No Chaser has announced plans for another epic U.S. concert tour, “The Open Bar Tour.” The tour begins October 25 and then continues through the holiday season with a performance at Ocean Casino Resort on Saturday, December 21 before culminating with a very special New Year’s Eve event in Portland, Oregon. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 10 at TicketMaster.com. For complete details about the tour visit www.sncmusic.com/tour. For more information about Straight No Chaser’s tour stop at Ocean Casino Resort visit TheOceanAC.com. 

Straight No Chaser’s latest studio album, “ONE SHOT“ is available now at all streaming services HERE as well as via the official Straight No Chaser store HERE. The album sees SNC doing what they do best with distinctive takes on classic pop and soul favorites, including Ricky Martin’s “Livin La Vida Loca,” Fleetwood Mac’s “Go Your Own Way,” James Brown’s “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag,” and the LP’s first single, an energetic mash-up of Boyz II Men and Montell Jordan entitled “Motownphilly/This Is How We Do It.” The track is joined by an official lyric video, streaming now at the official SNC YouTube channel HERE.

“ONE SHOT” is further highlighted by a richly harmonized version of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Homeward Bound” in which the hard-touring group expresses their deep yearning for the comforts of family life. In addition, the LP features alongside seven entertaining conversational interludes wherein the nine members of Straight No Chaser trace their unlikely rise from an undergraduate singing group at Indiana University to a beloved Atlantic Records act with a devoted international fanbase. 

Though filmed at Indiana University in December 1998, Straight No Chaser’s version of “The 12 Days of Christmas” – interpolating Toto’s “Africa” – proved the hottest viral video of the 2007 holiday season, receiving more than 7 million views that December alone and now boasting close to 23 million views HERE. Among those millions of viewers was Atlantic Records Chairman/CEO Craig Kallman, who promptly signed the Indiana-based a cappella group to the label’s legendary roster. Taking off from the runaway success of “The 12 Days Of Christmas,” Straight No Chaser made their now classic debut with 2008’s “HOLIDAY SPIRITS,” followed in the next year by “CHRISTMAS CHEERS.” Both albums reached the top of the holiday charts at Amazon and the iTunes Store and are now certified gold by the RIAA. The extraordinary decade that followed has seen the group amass album sales in excess of 1.6 million in the U.S. alone, along with more than 100 million YouTube views thus far.

Last year saw the release of a very special 10th Anniversary Edition of “HOLIDAY SPIRITS” featuring two brand new bonus tracks, “That’s Why We Celebrate” and “The 12 Days Of Christmas: 2018 Remix (Live).” “HOLIDAY SPIRITS: 10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION“ is available all music retailers and streaming services HERE.

Comedian Ron “Tater Salad” White Coming To Ocean Resort Casino This Summer

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ – January 28, 2019 — Ocean Resort Casino, Atlantic City’s iconic beachfront destination, announced today that Ron White will be performing at Ocean Resort Casino on Friday, August 23, 2019.  Tickets for the show will be available at Ticketmaster and go on sale February 1, 2019 at 10am.

“Ron White is a story-telling master who appeals to a large audience not only because of the hilarity of his subject matter, but the way he can make it relatable to so many.  We know this will be a popular show with our guests,” said Joe Grande, Assistant General Manager at Ocean Resort Casino.

Rising to fame as the cigar-smoking, scotch drinking comedian from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, Ron White is now a GRAMMY-nominated comedian and feature film actor.   Relaying stories from his upbringing in rural Texas, he has recorded four comedy albums, all of which charted #1 on the Billboard Comedy Charts.  Selling a combined 14 million albums from his solo performances and those with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, White has been nominated for two Grammys as one of the top grossing stand up comedians on tour in America.

White has been performing comedy since 1986 working his way up to becoming a comedic headliner.  In 2000, he was asked to join the Blue Collar Comedy Tour alongside Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy touring for over three years to sold-out audiences.  In 2003, Warner Brothers filmed the show Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie for TV/DVD/CD release and it premiered as the most-watched movie in Comedy Central’s history.

In November 2003, White released his breakthrough comedy CD Drunk in Public shortly followed by his first one-hour comedy special, They Call Me Tater Salad.  In addition to his comedy shows and performances, Ron has become a popular actor in supporting roles in major feature films such as Horrible Bosses and Sex and the City 2.

Throughout his career, White has been a passionate supporter of the US military troops for more than 20 years, donating his time, talents and resources.  In 2008, he created an annual charity show Ron White’s Comedy Salute to the Troops with proceeds going to the Armed Forces Foundation to assist troops and their families.

Ocean Resort Casino Provides Update and Announces Commitment of Strategic Capital Investment

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ – January 28, 2019 – Ocean Resort Casino, Atlantic City’s iconic beachfront destination, today provided an overview of the development of the property and casino in 2018, and introduced its plans for 2019, including recently securing a commitment of strategic capital.

Over the past year, Ocean Resort Casino, which was acquired by AC Ocean Walk, LLC in January 2018 and formally reopened in June 2018, has undergone a major renovation that has positioned it as one of the premier gaming and leisure venues in the United States. Specific achievements have included taking full advantage of the property’s 6.4 million total square feet with 138,000 square feet of gaming space featuring over 100 table games and 1,945 slot machines, a “best in market” sports book and enhancing the 165,000 square feet in meeting and convention space, and 5,000-seat concert hall.

In 2019, Ocean Resort Casino’s strategic plan anticipates continued investments to further enhance the exceptional guest and player experience. Specifically, the 2019 budget includes capital investment in a world-class buffet, additional suite and room product, incremental investments on the casino floor and other exciting projects. In addition, Ocean Resort Casino plans for a substantial increase in its entertainment programming and player events throughout the year.

“We are incredibly proud of the progress our team members have made in establishing Ocean Resort Casino as one of the premier gaming and leisure destinations in the United States,” said Frank Leone, Chief Executive Officer of Ocean Resort Casino. “We opened up the property even more effectively to the Boardwalk, and activated retail spaces and food and beverage options that have been extremely well-received by our guests. We are thankful for the support we have received from the broader Atlantic City and New Jersey community and look forward to an exciting 2019.”

Ocean Resort Casino and AC Ocean Walk recently received a commitment of $70 million in new strategic capital. The strategic investment is expected to close in early February, pending the receipt of the appropriate regulatory approvals and final documentation. The proposed investment will help fund the 2019 projects and provide Ocean Resort Casino with the financial flexibility to pursue even greater investment in its guest experience going forward.

Once approved, the substantial investment – the majority of which is being funded by one of AC Ocean Walk’s existing stakeholders, New York-based private investment firm Luxor Capital Group (which has no current or past affiliation with the similarly-named Las Vegas property) – is expected to result in Luxor increasing its ownership to a controlling level, requiring Luxor to complete a licensing process. Until Luxor receives interim licensing approvals, anticipated to be within approximately 90-120 days, a trust will be created for the purpose of holding the shares of the parent entity to AC Ocean Walk. A trustee, who will be appointed upon closing of the $70 million investment, will oversee this trust until Luxor receives its interim authorization, at which point the trustee will be removed. Ocean Resort Casino expects no operational effects from the temporary existence of the trust.

Jackson and Don Cheadle.  He was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2014 for “Outstanding Sports Personality, Studio Host”.

“David Feherty not only brings keen insight to the game of golf that his audience loves and appreciates, he brings the game to life with hilarious commentary about tour personalities and offers a glimpse behind the curtain for all golf enthusiasts that follow the tour and the game.  This is a show with something for everyone, even if they have never picked up a club,” said Joe Grande, Assistant General Manager at Ocean Resort Casino.

Feherty received rave reviews for his show on the Golf Channel by media outlets such as the New York Times and has been called one of the “funniest men in the game.”

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ – January 2, 2018 — Ocean Resort Casino, Atlantic City’s iconic beachfront destination, announced today it will be hosting the second in the Wine and Whiskey Series pairing dinners at Villain & Saint on Thursday, January 24, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.  The dinner will feature special small batch bourbons paired with a chef selected set menu.

“We are excited to change up the pace a little with Villain & Saint and offer our guests an evening where people can sample some unique quality, small batch whiskeys they might never order, and have them paired with some of the more truly special menu items at one of our popular restaurants,” said Vince Turrano, Vice President of Food & Beverage at Ocean Resort Casino.  “Whiskey can be an acquired taste, and this is a great opportunity for people who may initially be wary of ordering it to truly appreciate the fact that the taste and blend of a whiskey combined with its aging process can create an overall appreciation for a specific brand and batch in the same way that people appreciate wine.”

Villain & Saint is a cultural gathering spot for rockers of all types regardless of age, perspective and musical preference.  It is a rock n’roll music hall and gastropub that has live shows from Atlantic City favorites four days a week and serves a menu that offers something for everyone including wings, cheese fries, mussels and hummus plates.
