Peter Quillin, Bernard Hopkins & Joe Calzaghe among 2012 award winners

RING 8 2012 Fighter of the Year

WBO Middleweight Champion Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin

NEW YORK, NY (Dec. 19, 2012) - The 26th annual RING 8 Holiday Event and Awards Ceremony will be held Sunday afternoon (12:00-5:00 p.m. ET), February 10 at Russo's On The Bay in Howard Beach, New York.

Damage from Hurricane Sandy to Russo's On The Bay forced the event's postponement from December 9 to Feb. 10.

A star-studded group of past and present world champions and industry dignitaries will be in attendance. Steve Farhood will serve once again as Master of Ceremonies and Dave Diamante will announce the award winners.

Ring 8 has announced its 2012 award winners (see full list below), including new World Boxing Association middleweight champion Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin (Fighter of the Year), Joe Calzaghe (Fighter of the Year), and Bernard Hopkins (Lifetime Achievement),

"Our members really look forward to this gala event every year," Ring 8 president Bob Duffy said. "Some of the biggest names in boxing will be honored as we proudly continue our record for lending a helping hand to those in the boxing community who are less fortunate, some requiring assistance towards paying their rent, medical expenses, or whatever justifiable need. Each year our Holiday Event and Awards Ceremony celebrates our great sport of boxing, insuring much-needed funding is raised so we may continue our mission for our needy brothers and sisters in boxing. We will never waver from their corners. We had to wait a little longer this year because of Hurricane Sandy, but I'm confident it'll be another knockout Holiday Event and Awards Ceremony."

Committed celebrity boxing attendees include world champions Bobby Czyz, Virgil Hill, Iran Barkley, Vito Antuofermo, and Matthew Saad Muhammad, as well as Renaldo "Mr." Snipes, Tommy Gallagher, Michael Bentt, Harold Lederman, and Earnie Shavers.

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.
