Boobs 'n' boxing at strip-club press conference

Local boxing promoters are holding a press conference and weigh-in at Lou Turk's, a Tinicum strip club with mob ties.

Victor Vasquez (12-5-1, 6 KOs) will take on Gustavo Dailey (4-11, 1 KO) in a lightweight boxing rematch next Friday at Harrah's Casino in Chester.

But I suspect some readers might think the "main event" is actually Wednesday's press conference, which will be held at ... the local strip club. And not any boobie bar. We're talking Lou Turk's.

Turk's, I'm told, happens to be a place of employment for reputed mob associate Nicholas "Nicky the Hat" Cimino, who pleaded guilty in 2009 to participating in a corrupt organization, money laundering, bookmaking and related counts.

This all sounds totally above board, right?

The fight card is being promoted by Joey Eye Boxing and David Feldman (brother of Celebrity Boxing Federation promoter Damon Feldman). Both Wednesday's press conference at 7 p.m. and Thursday's weigh-in at 6 p.m. are at Lou Turk's. And open to the public.

Just another weeknight in Delco ...
