Mickey Bey was a man with a lot to get off his chest this past Monday.
On February 2nd, Bey, a lightweight contender (19-0-1, 9 KO’s) fighting out of Las Vegas, made an emphatic ring return following a 15-month layoff in halting Robert Rodriguez in under three rounds inside of the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino.
