Over the years, Ringside has hosted a number of celebrity guests who have been World Champions of the boxing world – Andre Ward, Joe Calzaghe, Thomas ‘Hitman’ Hearns, Roy Jones Jr., Sugar Ray Leonard, Michael Spinks, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis, Smokin’ Joe Frazier, Buster Douglas, Irish Mickey Ward, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Angelo Dundee, Sean O’Grady, Larry Holmes, Ray ‘Boom Boom’ Mancini, Roberto Duran, Jake LaMotta, Ernie Shavers, Gerry Cooney, Ken Norton, Aaron Pryor, Scotty ‘Bulldog’ Olson and five-time Canadian heavyweight champion, George Chuvalo.

The money raised by Ringside has gone to ensure continued free admittance to the Club that provides access to their four pillars of programming: Education; Physical Activity/Healthy Lifestyle; Leadership and Social Skills; and Creative Arts.
