"It's an investment and it's the right time," King told the Miami Herald, now that Vegas-style slot machines are in place.
King, who has promoted fights at casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City for the past 30 years, says his first major Broward boxing headliner is planned for Jan. 6 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino near Hollywood, a rematch between heavyweights Samuel Peter and James Toney.
King says Gulfstream Park Racing and Casino in Hallandale Beach and Pompano Park Racing & Poker's Isle of Capri have the room for an outdoor ring and a 20,000-seating area similar to Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
