Guest Speakers will be Boxing Judge Steve Weisfeld and former Welterweight contender Johnny Turner.

Steve Weisfeld is a lawyer, and a boxing judge. He is a partner at Beattie Padovano, a general practice law firm of approximately 30 attorneys in Montvale, New Jersey. He has been a professional boxing judge since 1991, and spent two of those years as a commentator with HBO. He has officially judged approximately 1,750 professional bouts including 80 world championships. Steve is recognized as one of the top boxing judges in the sport today.

Johnny Turner fought as a professional from 1975 to 1984. He fought such standouts as Frankie & Wilfred Benitez, Pat Hallacy and Larry Stanton. He finished with a career record of 42-6-2 with 32 KO’s. He also played along side of Robert DeNiro in the academy award winning picture “Raging Bull,” when he played the French fighter Laurent Dauthuille. However, after instinctively throwing a left hook to the body that dropped De Niro in a heap, Turner thought his movie career was over before it even began.
