This weekend, the 2017 Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame induction ceremony took place inside of Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nev.

Once again it was a gathering of today’s brightest stars, legends and champions from the past, diehard fans from across the globe, as well as several other luminaries from the sport of boxing. Once again, Hustle Boss was in the building and we were able to capture some exclusive behind-the-scenes shots.

If you are into the boxing scene in Las Vegas and in search of a diamond in the rough, perhaps Cuba’s Yordenis Ugas might be worth some of your time.

The 31-year old welterweight contender carries a 19-3 record with nine knockouts, yet it has been his recent run of success that has caught my eye. In August of last year, returning from a two-year layoff, Ugas upset previously-undefeated Jamal James over ten rounds in Verona, New York.
