Full Description: Ring 8 Minutes and Notes

President Bob Duffy


Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

Ring 8 Minutes
Executive Board Meeting

The monthly executive board meeting of the Veteran Boxers Association of NY, Ring 8, Inc. was held on Tuesday, Oct 20, 2009 at O'Neill's Restaurant, Maspeth, New York.



Board members in attendance: President Matt Farrago, V.P. Henny Wallitsch, Lenny Mangiapane, Bob Duffy, Henry Hascup, Tony Mazzarella, Johnny Breitenbruck, Paulette Balog, Tommy Gallagher, Frank Pena, Jack Hirsch, Richie O'Neill, Tony Di Pippo.

Our next meeting will be at the Waterfront Crabhouse, Tuesday, November 17th, 2009, at 7:00pm. Board of Directors will meet at 6:00pm.

The following items were discussed:

1. R.I.P. boxers were acknowledged:

A. Roland LaStarza: LaStarza fought 66 professional bouts from July 7, 1947 to May 8, 1961. His career record was 57-9-0 (27). The most important fight of LaStarza's career was a world heavyweight championship bout, and a rematch against Marciano on September 24, 1953. La Starza fought Marciano on even terms for the first six rounds but began to tire afterwards. Referee Ruby Goldstein stopped the fight in the eleventh round TKO as Marciano battered La Starza relentlessly. This was La Starza's first fight (out of 53) when he was stopped.

B. Jerry Tomasetti: As a pro, Tomasetti posted a 13-6 record with nine knockouts from 1959 to 1968. He had memorable bouts against Dante Cane in 1967 and 1968 which drew an overflow crowd in Scranton . The scrappy heavyweight also battled Chuck Wepner four times, including twice at Madison Square Garden and another at the Felt Forum in New York. For his athletic achievement, he was enshrined in the Northeast Region Sports Hall of Fame, the Luzerne County Chapter of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame and the New York State Boxing Hall of Fame.

2. Our special guest this evening was Leon Spinks: Leon represented the United States as a light heavyweight boxer in the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal and won the Gold medal. On February 15, 1978, in only his eighth professional fight, Spinks out pointed Muhammad Ali over 15 rounds to capture the world heavyweight title. Spinks lost the title back to Ali just seven months later.

3.Top priority was placed on our 2009 "Holiday and Awards Ceremony."

On Sunday, December 20, 2009, Ring 8 is celebrating its Annual Holiday Event and Awards Ceremony at Russo's on the Bay, 162-45 Crossbay Blvd, Howard Beach, NY 11414, 718-843-5055, 12:30pm - 5:30pm. Tickets are $125.00 per person.
