The world was introduced to Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's latest venture Team Snooki Boxing and the fighters she is promoting at a Manhattan saloon today. The pint-sized reality star appeared at a press conference to promote the trio of Irish brothers who will fight down at the Jersey shore— more specifically— Atlantic City.
The pint-sized Snooki is used to having cameras in front of her, but it's usually at a club or brawling with women trying to steal her man.
Today, the star of MTV's highly-rated "Jersey Shore" sat in front of the press to introduce The Hyland Brothers or "the Irish Invasion" as they call themselves.
The three brothers— Patrick, Paul and Eddie— will headline a night of pro-boxing at Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City on Saturday, January 28.
It is the first time that three brothers, who are all Irish champions, have fought on the same card in America.
Only Paul and Patrick were at today's greet and meet.
Promoting this night of boxing is Snooki's first venture into the fight game. The "guidette" has her jeweled fingers in a lot of businesses and maintains lines of everything from sandals to smart phone apps.
The team's logo even has a heart and a pair of dangling boxing gloves hanging from her signature.
Asked if she has always had an interest in boxing, Snooki said she "liked all the Rocky movies."
The Dublin-raised Hyland brothers are all up-and-coming contenders.
Patrick "Pajo" Hyland (24-0), 11 KO's) will put his unblemished record on the line in a super featherweight fight against Manny Lucaro (26-8, 14 KO's).
Paul (20-2, 5 KO's) will face featherweight Rafael Lora (11-7, 5) and Eddie (16-1, 6 KO's) will face an undetermined opponent.
Snooki called them all "future champions."
The press conference was filled with more paparazzi than sports photographers and there was a mad rush to the poof-haired spitfire instead of the fighters when the group arrived.
Snooki answered only a few boxing questions before she fist-pumped and said she was through.
Still, that's publicity money can't buy.
