Fat Chef Dimitri Verteouris fights at W Hotel in Hoboken, NJ

Entering the ring this year for the “Fight Night 2012″ amateur card is Dimitrios Verteouris, as featured on Food Network’s Fat Chef reality series.

The annual fundraiser is being hosted tonight at the W Hotel in Hoboken – and will benefit FAITH services which has been serving Hudson County residents with HIV / AIDS since 1998.

Tickets range from $25 for standing room only, to $100 for ring side seats.

In addition to raising funds for FAITH, the event will demonstrate the achievements of Chef Verteouris – who lost over 100 pounds through a dedicated boxing regimen (who wouldn’t?)

After the “miraculous” weight loss, Verteouris has launched a health initiative called Knockout Obesity, which hopes to end obesity in America “one body at a time.” (411 note: You don’t need a crazy “boxing regimen” to lose weight – just look at the low carb life section here for all you need to know to easily “knock it out” and still live a normal life…)

The project will feature five New Yorkers who will test the boxing training with professional nutritional advice to turn this into a 10 episode web series at www.KOobesity.com. Tonight’s fight will be shot on video for inclusion in the series.

Action starts at 7:30pm.
