Chris Algieri, Joe DeGuardia and Mike Stanton to be featured speakers at Ring 8 Meeting this Tuesday night at O'Neils Restaurant in Maspeth, New York

PhilBoxing.com


New York (November 19, 2018) - Former world junior welterweight champion champion Chris Algieri; his promoter Joe DeGuardia of Star Boxing and author Mike Stanton will be the featured guest speakers this Tuesday night at the Ring 8 meeting at O'Neill's Restaurant in Maspeth, New York (64-21 53rd Dr, Maspeth, NY 11378) beginning at 7 PM

"All of our meetings have great guest speakers, but this one will be outstanding" said Ring8 president Jack Hirsch. "Chris Algieri will be boxing at the end of the month and will speak in detail about his latest comeback as well as his career. His promoter Joe DeGuardia will not only be talking about Algieri's future plans, but also the other fighters who Star Boxing promotes. New York Times best selling author Mike Stanton will talk about his latest book, UNBEATEN, on former world heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano. The book has material on Marciano, that is revealing and has never before been published. Books will be available for sale."


Algieri, who will be making his return to the ring on November 30th at the Paramount in Huntington, New York will discuss his career as he has forged a championship career in the ring as well as being a coveted health guru to many other world champions.

Former World Boxing Organization (WBO) Jr. Welterweight Boxing Champion, ISKA World Welterweight Kickboxing Champion and WKA World Super Welterweight World Kickboxing Champion, with over 13 years professional fight experience. Been featured on HBO PPV, HBO Boxing After Dark, NBC Primetime, Showtime EXTREME, PBC on Spike, ESPN Friday Night Fights, and NBC Sports.
Algieri established himself as the 'Pride of Huntington', fighting in Long Island, NY just miles from his hometown of Greenlawn at The Paramount Theater in Huntington, NY, selling out the Theater eight consecutive times. He then went on to headline HBO's Boxing After Dark, where he staged Ring Magazine's Upset of 2014, by defeating Ruslan Provodnikov to win the WBO Super Lightweight World title at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. This led to the biggest fight of his life...

In only his 21st Professional Boxing match; Chris moved up in weight to fight the future Hall of Famer, Manny Pacquiao, in Macao China on HBO Pay Per View. Chris dropped the decision to the Philippino Great, but earned much respect in defeat. The world tour that preceded the build up to fight night saw 7 countries and exposed Chris to countless fans from all over the world.

Joining Algieri will be his longtime promoter Joe DeGuardia.

DeGuardia, who is the President of Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing has promoted countless world champions and championship fights over the past two-plus decades.

Joe began promoting boxing fights in 1992, founding Star Boxing, a boxing promotional company originally based in the Bronx, NY. For the last 26 years, DeGuardia has been professionally active in the boxing industry promoting. Past and present, boxers promoted by Star Boxing include former world champion Antonio Tarver, two time World Champion and 2008 US Olympian Demetrius Andrade, former WBO Jr. Welterweight champion Chris Algieri, former IBF Welterweight champion Joshua Clottey, former Heavyweight contender Vinny Maddalone and former WBC International Light Heavyweight champ Joe Smith Jr.. In 2016, DeGuardia moved Star Boxing's offices to White Plains, NY.

Stanton will be talking about his terrific book titled "Unbeaten," which is a story about Rocky Marciano - The son of poor Italian immigrants, with short arms and stubby legs, Rocky Marciano accomplished a feat that eluded legendary heavyweight champions like Joe Louis, Jack Dempsey, Muhammad Ali, and Mike Tyson: He never lost a professional fight. His record was a perfect 49-0.
Unbeaten is the story of this remarkable champion who overcame injury, doubt, and the schemes of corrupt promoters to win the title in a bloody and epic battle with Jersey Joe Walcott in 1952. Rocky packed a devastating punch with an innocent nickname, "Suzie Q," against which there was no defense. As the champ, he came to know presidents and movie stars - and the organized crime figures who dominated the sport, much to his growing disgust. He may have "stood out in boxing like a rose in a garbage dump," as one sportswriter said, but he also fought his own private demons.

In the hands of the award-winning journalist and biographer Mike Stanton, Unbeaten is more than just a boxing story. It's a classic American tale of immigrant dreams, exceptional talent wedded to exceptional ambitions, compromises in the service of a greater good, astounding success, disillusionment, and a quest to discover what it all meant. Like Suzie Q, it will knock you off your feet.
