Ring 8 awards gala will go on

Blizzard be damned. Neither snow, sleet nor any other combo winter storm Nemo can put together will keep the Ring 8 awards gala from taking place on Sunday, Feb. 10 at Russo's on the Bay in Howard Beach, Queens.

WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin will be present to pick up his award as 2012 Fighter of the Year.

Even if I need snowshoes to make it, I will also attend, and will have a report for NYFightblog readers.
