Just in time for the holidays, tickets for the Jan. 21 "SLUG FEST 2005", one of the hottest sporting events in town, are now on sale from Octavius James/ONE IN A MILLION INC., the Midwest's premiere boxing team.The team's November event, also held in the Celebrity Ballroom of the Radisson Hotel at Star Plaza, sold out quickly, with many fans being turned away after the crowd exceeded the venue's capacity, James said.
"There's no doubt we're drawing the attention and respect of sports fans throughout the Midwest," James said. "Tickets to "SLUG FEST 2005" have begun to move just as fast, so it's a good idea for fans who were turned away to get them early or purchase them as a great holiday gift for boxing fans."
