To some Dennis Finfrock was simply the man with the handlebar mustache. But Finfrock helped take boxing in Las Vegas to the next level. As the MGM Grand’s VP of Special Events, Finfrock managed what boxing matches would come to the MGM and also brought in the Rolling Stones, Barbra Streisand and countless other show stoppers to the area. After Mike Tyson was released from jail, it was Finfrock who inked him to a $20 million dollar deal which secured Iron Mike’s services at the MGM Grand.
In 1995 the Las Vegas Sun ranked the top 10 Las Vegas sports figures, Finfrock was the runaway choice at No. 1. He was placed above such notables as Bob Arum and Andre Agassi. Now battling Parkinson’s Disease, Finfrock has slowed down from his workaholic ways.
Each of the signatures or match-used mementos was obtained by Finfrock during his days working at the MGM Grand Garden. AMI is proud to present personal treasures from Finfrock’s collection. These have never been offered for public sale until now.
Shannon Briggs scored plenty of victories in the ring. He even beat George Foreman. In one of his matches he wore these Cleto Reyes boxing gloves. Both of the wrists have white athletic tape remnants. There is red writing on the inner wrist which has taken on a pinkish hue from sweat. "10 oz." flag tag designators are suspended near the manufacturer’s labels.
The right glove is signed "Shannon Briggs Future Champ" while the left glove is penned "To Dennis Thank you for having me fight at the MGM the best casino in the world." The signatures rate "8-9".
