Las Vegas (October 2, 2013) – The 2nd Raging Babe Brunch sponsored by Mayweather
Promotions took place on the morning of the highly anticipated mega fight “THE ONE:
MAYWEATHER VS. CANELO” at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The
vision behind this intimate event was to create a foundation for building a powerful network of
women in the sport of boxing in addition to recognizing some of its influencers.
Alongside its theme of uniting influential woman in the sport of boxing, the brunch honored
special guest Kelly Swanson of Swanson Communications for her hard work and drive which
ultimately led to her becoming one of the most highly respected people in her field. Through 25
years in the sport, she’s worked with names from Riddick Bowe during his heavyweight title run
to Bernard Hopkins and 10-time champion in five different weight classes Floyd “Money”
Mayweather. Swanson’s experience in developing and implementing full-scale public relations
and marketing campaigns, multi-tiered corporate promotions, and managing award-winning
events has been unparalleled, and Saturday’s brunch became her platform to be recognized for
her many contributions as she was presented with the Meritorious Achievement Award by
boxing great, Bernard Hopkins.
The intimate gathering included 40 phenomenal women who have stood out as leaders and
supporters that created a significant role in boxing for themselves while opening the doors for
many others. Guests enjoyed mimosas upon entering the chic and elegant decorum with a
gourmet feast set for a queen. Each table participated in team building activities and had the
opportunity to win prizes such as exclusive designer clutches, show tickets, dinner vouchers,
gourmet sweets, & weekend getaways at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.
Following the success of the inaugural Raging Babe Brunch, which took place on May 4th of this
year, it was decided that this remarkable event was not only necessary but positively influential in
bringing women that have stood out as leaders and supporters in the boxing world together. “The
first Raging Babe Brunch was so special, women involved in the sport of boxing were able to
gather together, cross paths, and begin creating a network to impact the sport of boxing together,”
said Raging Babe CEO Michelle Rosado. “Being a prominent supporter of these events and
Raging Babe’s overall vision is something that Mayweather Promotions is proud to be involved
with, said Mayweather Promotions CEO, Leonard Ellerbe. What Raging Babes is doing is a great
thing and we’re happy to be involved.” As the Raging Babe brand continues to expand and
venture into projects across the globe, you can plan on seeing a lot more of these events.
