Andre Kut can't stand fakes or fibbers, and he's met more than his share over the years in the boxing business.
But, he's also met plenty of straight-up, honest people, too.
Telling the difference is part of his talent, and part of what's made him one of the most successful boxing promoters in America.
KEA Boxing show featuring Juan "The Beast" Rodriguez vs Greg "Hot Shot" Hackett wins Philly Fight of the Year!
2011 PHILLY FIGHT OF THE YEAR: JUAN "THE BEAST" RODRIGUEZ VS. GREG "HOT SHOT" HACKETT
Written by: John Disanto of Philly Boxing History
On July 29, 2011, the Asylum Arena was once again the site of the best Philly fight of the year. The fight, a welterweight 6-rounder between an undefeated visitor and a struggling local club fighter, had an unlikely transformation from scheduled preliminary bout to sudden main event, and now the "2011 Philly Fight of the Year".

Welterweight prospect Juan Rodriguez Jr., a former delinquent, found an unlikely mentor in police sergeant trainer – and boxing trainer – Joe Botti. Rodriguez fights in at the Mount Airy Casino and Resort in Mount Pocono, Penn., on Friday.
The relationship between fighter and trainer is often one of great contrasts. Muhammad Ali, for instance, spewed plenty of lines in his youth supporting the separation of races, yet maintained Italian-American trainer Angelo Dundee from the beginning to end of his pro career. Likewise, Cus D'Amato was able to transcend cultural boundaries with Mike Tyson, shaping his mind for the success he would achieve later in life.

On the last Friday of the summer, under a tent at the Mount Airy Casino in Mount Pocono, PA the Boxing Diva was ringside for the fights. It was just the kind of fights I like; up and coming kids giving it all they have. There were no TV cameras, famous celebrities ringside, or banners of huge promoters above the ring. Promoted by New Jersey based promoter KEA Boxing, the card consisted of fighters with records of less than 15 fights. Mostly local fighters, coming from the New Jersey/Pennsylvania area.
