“Ring 8 is fortunate to have two fascinating speakers this month who will share their vast experience with us,” Ring 8 president Jack Hirsch said. “Melvina Lathan was a world class judge for years before heading the New York State Athletic commission. She is still involved in the sport in various capacities.  Randy Neumann was a heavyweight of note in the 1970′s who boxed a main event at Madison Square Garden against Jerry Quarry. Later he would become one of the best-known referees in boxing working major fights involving Mike Tyson and other champions.”
