Snooki to Promote New York Fight Card Featuring Hyland Brothers

"Jersey Shore" reality TV star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is leading promotion for a January 28 boxing card at Resorts Casino in Atlantic City, featuring Dublin's three Hyland brothers, who are now the key (and only) members of Team Snooki Boxing.

None of the Hylands are particularly notable fighters, as all are past true prospect age and have shown no likely world stage ability. Eddie (16-1, 6 KO) is the oldest and biggest, as a middleweight, followed by 28-year-old featherweight Patrick (24-0, 11 KO), and 27-year-old super bantamweight Paul (20-2, 6 KO).

Most interesting is that Snooki is bankrolling a boxing card for whatever reason. Her father, Andy Polizzi, is also part of the promotional team. Irish fighters do tend to bring in a crowd if they fight frequently enough in the northeast, so it may be possible for the Hylands to catch on and become club stars, as they've sort of exhausted their potential in Ireland itself.

How many shows do you imagine Team Snooki will actually put on with Polizzi backing the event? One? Two? One?
