Team Snooki Boxing will be making its debut this January 28 at—where else—the Jersey shore.

No, the meat-ball-sized reality star, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi,  won't be lacing up her own gloves but will be backing three Irish brothers ringside at Resorts Casino Hotel in the boardwalk city.

Here comes boxing's newest Don King in high heels and mini skirt.  Hey, she has the same poofed up hairstyle as the legendary promoter.

The star of MTV's highly-rated Jersey Shore announced her latest enterprise earlier this month on the New York sports show The Boomer and Carton Show finalized the date on Tuesday.

Snooki's team features a trio of Irish brothers who are all up-and-coming contenders.  No tomato paste cans in this group.

Patrick "Pajo" Hyland (24-0, 11 KO's) is a legitimate featherweight, Eddie Hyland (16-1, 6 KO's) is a super featherweight and Paul "Pauly" Hyland (26-2, 5 KO's) is a bantamweight.

Snooki's jewelery and hair gel probably weigh more than all three brothers put together.

Hailing from Dublin, the three brothers will headline what is being called "An Irish Invasion."

"We are incredibly excited to introduce The Hyland Brothers and Team Snooki Boxing.  We've seen what these boys can do, and expect nothing less than continued success here in the States," VP of Final round Promotions Mike Pascale said in a press release.

All three brothers will be bringing serious boxing skills to the ring.

Patrick is the Irish featherweight champion, Former- IBF Intercontinental Featherweight Champion, Intercontinental Super Featherweight Champion and WBF World Featherweight champion.

Eddie is the Former-Irish Super featherweight Champion and Paul is the Irish Super-Bantamweight Champion.

While Snooki will be in the trio's corner that night, hair-pulling and clawing jealous female rivals are not part of the undercard.

Everyone fist pump and do a shot.
