Fight for Charity attracted more than 1,200 people to the Long Island Hilton.
Robert "The Warlord" Worlow had to be taken away in an ambulance. It's the kind of boxing event where even in the stretcher he was smiling.
It was a night where Long Islanders joined together to raise money for a handful of charities: the LI MS Society, The Genesis School, Long Island Community Chest, and the National Foundation for Human Potential.
While the boxing matches are fun and important, they are just the vehicle to accomplish a mission, which is to raise funds and awareness for the recipient charities and to spread the word of their vital programs and services, organizers said.
"Everyone involved should all be so proud that the funds will impact the lives of thousands of families this year in our local community and home, Long Island." said founder Jeff Cohen.
