World Champion ballroom pro Tony Dovolani of Dancing With the Stars and reality star Melissa Rycroft have made it to the finale of the hit ABC TV show, and will dance for the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy tonight.

Off the dance floor, Dovolani and his sports management company, Dovolani Boxing have a strong interest in the sport of boxing. So much so that he’s become the manager of professional cruiserweight Nasi Hani, 6-0, 3 KOs, a 29-year old fighter from Macedonia who is scheduled to next fight on the undercard of the January 19th NBC Sports Network Fight Night boxing show at  Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT.

Dovolani hopes that tonight he and Melissa can “float like a butterfly” enough to impress the judges and home viewing audience, and finally bring home the elusive DWTS Mirror Ball Trophy. After that, he’ll turn his attention on his fighter’s next start.

“Tonight’s ‘Dancing With the Stars’ final is like a boxing world title fight for us,” Dovolani said.  “I hope to guide Melissa to the championship in the ballroom just like I plan to help Nasi Hani achieve his dream of becoming a champion in the boxing ring.”
