It’s hard to describe everything that takes place during Fight Week in Las Vegas.

With the city playing host to the biggest and best boxing events for several decades now, Las Vegas always heats up and gets busy the week of any big boxing fight and all you have to do is take a walk around the city during this time to get a gauge on just how much concentrated energy is around.

In a wild, back-and-forth fight from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev., David Benavidez became boxing’s youngest world champion at 20 years of age with a split-decision victory over rugged contender Ronald Gavril from Romania.

It was a very fast-paced affair from the start, with Gavril’s accuracy allowing him to dictate the pace at times while Benavidez’s strength, size, and power allowed him to have success of his own. Gavril came on very strong in the middle of the fight, only to see Benavidez turn up the tempo in the championship rounds.

Frese, 23, has been working ardently both in Las Vegas while training with Cuban trainer Ismael Salas, as well as in his hometown of Thailand. Frese has tremendous talent and is a prospect worth keeping an eye on.

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.

The “So Fresh” showcases go down every month inside of the Waterhole (5115 Spring Mountain Rd., Ste. 123, Las Vegas, NV, 89146), typically between 9 p.m to 2 a.m.

When it was announced that recreational marijuana was going to officially go legal in Las Vegas, it created quite a stir in the city; as evidenced by the seemingly endless lines of people at dispensaries on the eve of July 1. I have become more and more interested in the cannabis craze that seems to be sweeping across Vegas, the U.S., and abroad, and am going to be actively covering several angles on my blog here at Hustle Boss.

When I came across the people at Cookin’ Budies on Instagram, I knew it was a movement I wanted to follow. Describing itself as “Traveling educational cannabis cooking show”, Cookin Budies teaches people the benefits of using cannabis properly and how it can treat your mind, body, and spirit.

Having been around the Las Vegas Fight Scene for some years now, I have seen my fair share of trainers around town. With so many gyms in the city, there are plenty of trainers and each of them has a unique approach to the sport.

In former kickboxing champion and former boxing contender Dewey Cooper, I have come to admire him as one of the most committed and hard-working people in the fight game when it comes to pushing his fighters. Cooper captured the WKC heavyweight and WKF cruiserweight titles as a kickboxer while also compiling a 19-3-3 record with 11 knockouts as a professional boxer.

I remember hearing good things about lightweight prospect Dustin Arnold a few years back from one of my friends in the South Florida area and made a point to link up with him recently when he was out in Las Vegas.

Arnold was in town this past week with his trainer, former amateur fighter Jeff Poritz, in search of some work ahead of his Aug. 5 return to the ring in Tampa, Fl. and I was able to follow him a few days and get a sense of how serious he is towards his craft.
