Rocky’s old nemesis “Ivan Drago” still packs a punch as he teams up with BQT Technologies at a glamour award night in Los Angeles.
SMASH Global will present the lifetime achievement award to legendary actors Dolph Lundgren (“Ivan Drago” in Rocky IV), Lou Ferrigno, the original Hulk actor, and Hall of Fame boxing champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley at the SMASH VIII: Night of Champions at the Taglyan Complex Grand Ballroom in Los Angeles, California on December 13, 2018.
BQT Technologies, LTD (“BQT.io”) are proud to be presenting the lifetime achievement award to Dolph Lundgren at the SMASH VIII event.
“It is a great honour for us to present such amazing award to the Rocky IV legend Mr Lundgren”, says BQT CEO Edward Mandel, “I am thankful to SMASH Global and specifically to its Chairman and my good friend Steve Orosco for giving us this once in a lifetime opportunity to present. As a refugee from the former Soviet Union, it also feels somewhat ironic to present this award to Dolph. Moreover, it makes me feel young again thinking of that ‘Rocky’ fight”.
BQT’s strategic partner and LDJ Capital Chairman David Drake says: “I am delighted to give the award to my fellow Swede, Mr Dolph Lundgren. I am fascinated at how SMASH Global was able to combine an exclusive gala setting with an exciting showcase of bouts from professional mixed martial artists.”
BQT recently announced the launch of their P2P decentralised trading platform, which will allow direct negotiations between crypto traders for short-term hedging. BQT (Better, Quicker, and Transparent), is expected to simplify an industry dominated by large institutional Hedge Funds, effectively decentralising it, making crypto hedge trading more accessible.
SMASH VIII will feature a gala dinner and a silent auction where all the proceeds from the sale will benefit The Collective Access. The forthcoming MMA main bout features Joash Walkins and Flavio Carvalho competing for the Bantamweight Championship Title.
The partners of this event include BQT.io, NOYO Web Development Inc., and Omela.
