READY TO RUMBLE: Boxing greats, sports heroes, beautiful table servers and ring ladies, Redskins cheerleaders, major business leaders, influential politicians, and, of course, boxing, make Joe Robert’s annual smoke and Chivas-filled fundraiser the most anticipated of the fall charity season.
IN THE RING: Jermaine Dupri, Alphonso Maldon, Manny Acta, Dick Butkus, Ken Norton, Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, Michael Spinks, Jef Zell, Adrian Fenty, Bob Sloan, Bob Pincus, and Gen. James Jones.
