The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino welcomed Las Vegas’ nightlife and casino hosts last night for the first ever Fight Club Charity Boxing Tournament inside The Joint,  luring more than 850 onlookers and fans.  The amateur fighters laced up their gloves and battled it out for a good cause in support of the world’s leading cleft charity, Smile Train and Barry’s Boxing, a nonprofit organization in association with USA Boxing.
