The bout for the Lightweight Championship match between Ray ''Boom-Boom'' Mancini and South Korean Duk-Koo Kim, took place November 13, 1982 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

The company is now located in Los Angeles, and sends out several auction catalogs a year featuring autographed items, books, fine art, and other collectibles to a global client base.
