A trio of officials representing the upcoming 85th annual Daily News Golden will be the guest speakers at this Tuesday’s monthly RING 8 meeting at the historic Waterfront Crabhouse in Long Island City.
The speakers are Brian Adams, director of the Daily News Golden Gloves Tournament, U.S. Metros president Eddie Acevedo and Mickey Rosario, chief of officials.
“This will be an informative meeting about how the Daily News Golden Gloves Tournament has operated so successfully during the past 84 years,” said Ring 8 president Bob Duffy. “This is the largest amateur tournament of its kind in the United States. We’re very fortunate to have Brian, Eddie and Mickey discussing how US Metros officials are assigned, boxers are matched, required tests and how scoring in the tournament differs from in the pro ranks. Everyone in attendance will get a special insight into the inner workings of this great New York event.”
Tuesday’s Ring 8 meeting starts at 7p ET. For tickets or more info call (718) 729-4862.
