This year's inductees were selected amongst a group of 17 nominees by the hundreds of registered USA Boxing Alumni Association members during the months of June and July.
"USA Boxing Alumni Association is extremely excited to honor this year's Hall of Fame class, as each inductee represents everything good that amateur boxing has to offer," said Chris Cugliari, USA Boxing Alumni Association Executive Director. "Last year's class contributed to a fantastic inaugural Hall of Fame reception and we're looking forward to recognizing this year's class with an even better event."
Created to champion a lifelong, mutually beneficial relations between USA Boxing and its alumni, --boxers, officials, coaches and boxing fans -- The Alumni Association connects generations of champions, inspiring and giving back to USA Boxing's future boxing champions, in and out of the ring.
The charter class inducted last year included Muhammad Ali and Evander Holyfield, in addition to veteran coaches Roosevelt Sanders and Tom Coulter.
"Each inductee has given so much to Olympic-style amateur boxing and the alumni community wants to thank them, for doing so," Cugliari added. "We look forward to seeing USA Boxing Alumni members come out in droves to support this year's Hall of Fame class in December."
The USA Boxing Alumni Association is open to anyone who has a love for boxing and would like to stay connected with amateur boxing. Members are granted access to a wide variety of special events host by the Alumni Association, including the USA Boxing Alumni Association Hall of Fame reception.
