Conicelli Autoplex sponsors boxing at Valley Forge Casino this weekend

Nationally-ranked middleweight boxer "Lightning" Harry Joe Yorgey will fight Julius “Relentless” Kennedy in an 8-round bout Friday night, March 15, in the co-headline event of a 7-bout boxing card at the Valley Forge Casino in King of Prussia, Pa.

Conicelli Autoplex is sponsoring this inaugural event at the Valley Forge Casino, and will also sponsor the next 6 events including another boxing event and 5 mixed martial arts events.

“I want to thank all my area fans that will be coming out to support me. And I want to thank Conicelli, my main sponsor,” said Yorgey.

Michael Hammond, vice president of sales and marketing at Conicelli Autoplex said, “This will be the first of seven events we’re sponsoring at the Valley Forge Casino. It started off with just sponsoring Harry’s fight and evolved into us sponsoring two boxing cards and five mixed martial arts events.

“The great thing is that Valley Forge Casino is doing the first fight with a local guy. But, it also shows that Conicelli is getting involved with sponsoring big events. We try to give back to the community a lot. For example, we are sponsors of the Norristown PAL.”

Tickets are $125 (VIP), $75 (ringside) and $45 (general admission) and can be purchased at the Valley Forge Casino Resort. For more information call 610-768-3288 or visit (
