Lord Neil B. Gibson and Tammy Lier Gibson with Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow at the Washington Charity Gala Event

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) — Saturday night was Fight Night in Las Vegas.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr. battled it out against Robert Guerrero at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Mayweather fought as if he had never left the ring, coming back from a year’s absence to win a unanimous 12-round decision over Guerrero in their welterweight title fight.

Mayweather was masterful at times and improved to 44-0.

This was Mayweather’s first fight in a year. It’s also his first ring appearance since serving a jail term for assaulting the mother of his children. (more…)

Most recently, from deep down in the beautiful Caribbean country of Belize, the wheels are in motion to put on the world’s very first, and what could be the last, professional Bullriding event in Belize.

Lord Neil B. Gibson and First Interstate Group are currently in discussions and planning for this stellar Event. A portion of the proceeds will go towards the Belize Housing Project and the construction of a new hospital in the goal is to draw 10,000 people for the event over 3 days. Fans are said to come to Belize from all over the world for this incredible event. With such a big draw, organizers are expecting to fuel and stimulate tourism and the economy of Belize. Every one of the three days, there will be professional Bullriding with 100 plus bullriders per day. A total of $100,000.00 prize money will be up for grabs. $50,000.00 will be paid out in day monies and a Sunday evening Top 10 Ride off will provide the best Bullrider with a Check for $50,000.00. Along with the End of the World Bullriding, there will be special events such as the freestyle Bullfight. Mexican fighting bulls will be specially brought in for this event. The bull is not killed in this bullfight. The only one at risk is the Bullfighter. He must play with the bull for a minimum of 60 seconds, making contact with the bull as much as possible without getting hit by the bull. Judges score him based on this. Another event will be Cowboy Poker. Six entrants will be seated in chairs at a poker table and given a deck of cards. They will begin to deal the cards and at that time a raging bull will be turned loose in the arena. The last man still seated at the table will receive the prize money for the day, totalling $500.00. This event always keeps you on the edge of your seat and provides many laughs, chills and thrills. Another event will be the Wild and Wooly. This is where all of the entrants are 5 years old and younger. They will be given a chance to ride a sheep. All our contestants in this event will be given prizes. The organizers tell us that there will also be some special guests appearing at the EOW Bullriding. Gary Leffew, many times World Champion Bullrider and teacher of many, has agreed to show up at the event. Gary has been in movies such as Pink Cadillac with Clint Eastwood to Johnny Knoxville’s Jackass movie series. The one time representative of Bulls Eye BBQ sauce says he is looking forward to coming to Belize and has heard many good things about the people here. Along with all the sporting and special events of each of the 3 nights will be a special concert each night. Three bands are slated to appear on Friday and Saturday night with a 5 band grand finale on Sunday. Musicians will be coming from Canada, United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Jamaica, and of course Belize. Finishing off each night will be a fireworks show so be sure to come one, come all. Watch some of the greatest entertainers in the world, some of the greatest musicians in the world and watch the End of the World in the Caribbean, home of the Mayans where the 2012 prophecy began. Tickets will be on sale in September of 2012 and will start at $30.00 for Friday and Saturday with a ticket price of $50.00 for the Sunday Grand Finale. Packages and Discounts are being offered at sponsor Resorts and Hotels.

Like many other sports fans, Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson is interested in professional boxing; however, he is interested in it on a deeper level than other fans may even realize exists. You see, professional boxing is not just a sport that provides entertainment for its fans—it is an economic tool that South Africa can use to grow its economy and get into the international sporting arena.

Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson has teamed up with the government of South Africa to stimulate the growth of professional boxing in the country. To do so, he has created Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson LLC, which is a company that promotes and manages boxing events with South Africa while seeking to expand the professional boxing market and the careers of the up and coming boxers within the country.

South Africa has shown out some very talented athletes in this arena, including Gerrie Coetzee, Baby Jake, Dingaan Thombela, and Francois Botha. The potential of the talent coming out of this country is indeed very high, and Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson is working to ensure that he can do everything in his power to give these athletes a chance to make it on the international stage. The success of the 2010 World Cup shows that South Africa has developed its economy and infrastructure to the point where it can shoulder the weight of large-scale athletic events—Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson is simply guiding the boxing industry in the right direction.

The mission of LNBG LLC is threefold:

  • To promote and manage a variety of professional boxing events.
  • To produce entertainment related to the sport, particularly television shows.
  • To encourage and facilitate amateur boxing in an effort to grow the talent pool and expand South Africa’s presence in the international boxing arena.

From guiding the careers of individual boxers to hosting large events and coordinating legendary boxing matches, Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson, if anyone, is capable of developing the South African boxing industry.

Las Vegas may seem frozen in time, what with one would-be Strip resort — Echelon — showing only as a barely started steel skeleton and another — Fontainebleau — a towering, empty building. Las Vegas’ construction gusto has been suppressed by the recession; the biggest developments in town are two large observation wheels. But once either of those is completed, a passenger high above the Strip may well look down on the construction of a sports and entertainment palace of one sort or another. It may be a sports arena downtown, next to the Smith Center for the Performing Arts. It may be an arena rising alongside the Strip behind Harrah’s and Imperial Palace, next to the observation wheel known as the Linq. It could well be a 50,000-seat, enclosed stadium at UNLV. Or it could be an arena on the south end of the valley, in .
