Dee Lee Promotions, Inc., in association with Resorts Casino Hotel present The Next Generation a historic evening of boxing showcasing several of the sport’s greatest blood-lines as the sons of George Foreman, Dave Tiberi and Bruce Seldon step into the ring on March 4 in Atlantic City in the new Resorts’ inaugural boxing event.
