We all know that Jersey Shore's Snooki can take a punch (ouch, that still hurts to watch!). But, can she promote one, too? Her and her father Andy Polizzi are banking on the fact that she can, which is why they just agreed to partner up with a company called Final Round Promotions out of Poughkeepsie, N.Y. to promote boxing matches under the name Team Snooki Boxing. No, unfortunately we're not kidding here, people. Snooki—who, from what we can tell, knows about as much about boxing as she does about staying sober on a Saturday night—is going to be promoting boxing matches for a stable of fighters, beginning with a bill on January 28 at Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City that'll stream live on the Internet for $9.95. But, don't worry. Just because she's promoting matches doesn't mean she'll be getting into the ring anytime soon.
"I'm not messing up this pretty face," she told a group of reporters yesterday, before revealing the real reason she got involved with this in the first place. "Helping out my dad is No. 1. Me and my dad are like best friends; I'm a daddy's girl."
Awww...Well, isn't that nice? But, sorry: We're still not forking over 10 bucks to watch a couple of nobodies box simply because Snooki's promoting it. Call us if you can talk some sense into Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Manny Pacquiao (hey, someone out there has to, right?) and then we'll talk, Snooks.
