Press Release: More than 100 people turned out last week for at Ring 8's tribute to the late, great Emile Griffith, at historic Waterfront Crabhouse, in Long Island City, New York. The six-time, three-division world champion Griffith (85-24-2, 23 KOs) was a fixture at Ring 8. His tribute included speakers such as his biographer Ron Ross, Emile's son Louis, boxing historian Henry Hascup and Bobby Bartels, his former sparring partner and past president of Ring 8.  Everyone enjoyed watched some of Griffith's best fights, on a projector screen, against Dick Tiger, Luis Rodriguez, Jorge Fernandez, Andy Heilman, Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, and the second Nino Benvenuti fight. "We had a tremendous turnout to celebrate Emile's life and boxing career," Ring 8 president Bob Duffy said.  "It was a fitting tribute to a very special man.  We're all better people for having known him."
