Lightweight champion Frank Erne in the Old Timer category and Paddy Ryan in the Pioneer category will also be honored. Inductees were voted in by members of the Boxing Writers Association and a panel of international boxing historians. “We’re extremely excited about the Class of 2020 and are very much looking forward to honoring the newest class of inductees, which includes the first ever female boxers to be enshrined,” said Executive Director Edward Brophy. The International Boxing Hall of Fame announced today that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021 will both be enshrined together during the 32nd Annual Hall of Fame Induction Weekend scheduled for June 10-13th in “Boxing’s Hometown.”
Fans who purchased 2020 Induction Weekend event tickets can transfer them to the 2021 Induction Weekend or refunds will be available until June 1st. Ticket applications for the 2021 Induction Weekend will be released soon.
Many events in “Boxing’s Hometown” of Canastota are planned throughout the four-day celebration, as well as evening events at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, NY.
In 2017, Turning Stone Resort Casino and the International Boxing Hall of Fame announced a five-year multifaceted partnership to spotlight the entire region, garnering national attention and boosting tourism in Central New York. The program includes a series of nationally-televised boxing events at Turning Stone, culminating every year in June with an elaborate and bigger-than-ever International Boxing Hall of Fame Weekend with several exciting events in Madison County and Oneida County throughout the four-day celebration.
