Daniel Jacobs & Harold Weston Ring 8 Guest Speakers Tuesday night in New York

World Boxing Association (WBA) Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs and 2015 New York State Boxing Hal of Fame inductee Harold Weston will be tomorrow night’s (Tuesday, May 19) special Ring 8 guest speakers at O’Neill’s Restaurant, located at 64-21 53rd Drive in Maspeth, New York.

Jacobs (29-1, 26 KOs), fighting out Brooklyn, is an inspiration having overcome cancer to become world champion. An outstanding amateur boxer, Jacobs was a gold medal winner at the 2003 Junior Olympics National, 2004 & 2005 National PAL, 2004 & 2005 National Golden Gloves tournaments.

Last August, Jacobs captured the vacant WBA 160-pound division world champion, stopping Jarrod Fletcher (18-1) in the fifth round. In his first world title defense this past April, Jacobs registered a win by 12th round technical knockout over Caleb Truax (25-1-2) in Chicago.

Weston (26-9-5, 7 KOs) had an outstanding professional boxing career until he retired in 1979 after his fight with Thomas Hearns. Weston’s most notable victory was against world champion (and fellow NYSBHOF inductee) Vito Antuofermo in 1973, by way of a fifth-round technical knockout due to cuts. Weston fought draws with two other world champions, Saoul Mamby, who was also inducted into the NYSBHOF Class of 2015, and Wilfredo Benitez.
