The 23rd Celebrity Fight Night was bittersweet this year as it was the first time that it went off without the presence of legendary boxer, Muhammad Ali, who died less than a year ago.
The event was held at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix near Tatum and Deer Valley Road.
The event was hosted by Reba McEntire who returned as the evening’s emcee for the 11th year.
There were appearances by Carrie Underwood, Reba, Brooks & Dunn, The Tenors, Carly Paoli and Sinbad.
Throughout Celebrity Fight Night's 23-year history $127 million has been raised with the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center at Barrow Neurological Institute as a significant beneficiary.
