NEW YORK/TORONTO (Jan. 13, 2015) - Ring 8 was a proud sponsor of the recent 28th annual Ring 8 Holiday Events and Awards Ceremony, held at Russo's On The Bay in Howard Beach, New York.

Fight Network is a 24/7 television channel dedicated to complete coverage of combat sports. It airs programs focused on the entire scope of the combat sports genre, including live fights and up-to-the-minute news and analysis for boxing, mixed martial arts, kickboxing, professional wrestling, traditional martial arts, fight news, as well as fight-themed drama series, documentaries and feature films.

Ring 8, formed in 1954 by ex-prizefighter Jack Grebelsky, became the eighth subsidiary of what was then known as the National Veteran Boxers Association - hence, Ring 8 - and today the organization's motto is still the same: Boxers Helping Boxers. With its 350+ plus members, Ring 8 is the largest group of its kind in the United States. It remains 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.
