Brian “The Punisher” Weiner
Brian Weiner is program Manager for Telephonics Corporation in Farmingdale, an advanced technology company generating surveillance, communications, analysis and integration solutions. He is also a personal trainer at UFC in Farmingdale.
“I attended the 2010 Fight for Charity Main Event. Friends who participated told me about their experiences,” said Brian. “I decided to volunteer to be a charity boxer because I feel there is no better way to help someone in need than to sacrifice my time training and then step in the ring and put my body on the line for donations. Not only do I get to test and push myself to my limits but I will also be able to raise money for a worthy cause and help families in the local community. “To me putting in the time and effort training and then fighting in this year’s Main Event is the ending of a journey I began in 2010. I was in need of losing a good amount of weight and entered a boxing gym looking to achieve that goal. Not only did I lose weight, I discovered a hobby and a sport that became one of my favorite things to do. When the prospect of participating in the 2017 Fight for Charity came up, I jumped at the chance.” Brian is supportive of Ring 10 of NY, a non-profit foundation assisting past and present boxers who have fallen on hard times. He earned a B.S. in Science from SUNY Oneonta and a M.A. in Criminal Justice from Long Island University – C.W. Post. Brian is married and has two daughters. He lives in Smithtown.
