Danny Jacobs & Harold Weston Guest Speakers This Tuesday, May 19th at O’Neill’s

Daniel Jacobs & Harold Weston

Ring 8 Guest Speakers Tuesday night in New York


NEW YORK (May 18, 2015) – World Boxing Association (WBA) Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs and 2015 New York State Boxing Hall of Fame inductee Harold Weston will be tomorrow night’s (Tuesday, May 19) special Ring 8 guest speakers at O’Neill’s Restaurant, located at 64-21 53rd Drive in Maspeth, New York, with a buffet meal starting at 7 PM.

Jacobs (29-1, 26 KOs), fighting out Brooklyn, is an inspiration having overcome cancer to become world champion. An outstanding amateur boxer, Jacobs was a gold medal winner at the 2003 Junior Olympics National, 2004 & 2005 National PAL, 2004 & 2005 National Golden Gloves tournaments.

Last August, Jacobs captured the vacant WBA 160-pound division world champion, stopping Jarrod Fletcher (18-1) in the fifth round.  In his first world title defense this past April, Jacobs registered a win by 12th round technical knockout over Caleb Truax (25-1-2) in Chicago.

Weston (26-9-5, 7 KOs) had an outstanding professional boxing career until he retired in 1979 after his fight with Thomas Hearns.  Weston’s most notable victory was against world champion (and fellow NYSBHOF inductee) Vito Antuofermo in 1973, by way of a fifth-round technical knockout due to cuts.  Weston fought draws with two other world champions, Saoul Mamby, who was also inducted into the NYSBHOF Class of 2015, and Wilfredo Benitez.

ABOUT RING 8:  Ring 8 became the eighth subsidiary of what was then known as the National Veteran Boxers Association — hence, RING 8 — and today the organization’s motto still remains: Boxers Helping Boxers.

RING 8 is fully committed to supporting less fortunate people in the boxing community who may require assistance in terms of paying rent, medical expenses, or whatever justifiable need.

Go on line to for more information about RING 8, the largest group of its kind in the United States with more than 350 members. Annual membership dues is only $30.00 and each member is entitled to a buffet dinner at RING 8 monthly meetings, excluding July and August.  All active boxers, amateur and professional, with a current boxing license or book are entitled to a complimentary RING 8 yearly membership.  Guests of Ring 8 members are welcome at a cost of only $7.00 per person.
