A local boxing promoter is seeking city money to help with a youth tournament set for next month.
Carlos Crespin of Crespin’s Boxing has applied for $1,500 in lodger’s tax funds. The money would help pay for advertising and trophies for winners — all of which would include the city’s logo.
Crespin said the three-day tournament would bring up to 100 boxers to Las Vegas, giving business to motels, restaurants and other local businesses.
“This will bring money into the city. I’m not making any money off this,” he said.
