The BQT crypto exchange will deliver the SMASH Award in the Global Lifetime Achievement category to actor Dolph Lundgren who played the famous Ivan Drago character in Rocky IV.
On December 13th, 2018, at the Grand Ballroom Complex in Taglyan, Los Angeles, California, SMASH Global will deliver career awards to legendary actors Dolph Lundgren and Lou Ferrigno (the actor in the first Hulk television series), and Hall of Fame boxing champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley, during the SMASH VIII: Night of Champions.
During the event, BQT Crypto will present and deliver the career award to Lundgren.
Edward Mandel, CEO of BQT, said:
“It is a great honour for us to present such amazing award to the Rocky IV legend Mr Lundgren. 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”.
SMASH VIII will feature a gala dinner and an auction whose sales proceeds will benefit The Collective Access. Partners in the event include BQT.io, NOYO Web Development Inc. and Omela.
