Veterans and a guest can enjoy boxing history with free admission to Hall

CANASTOTA, NY - NOVEMBER 7, 2019 - The International Boxing Hall of Fame is offering free admission to all veterans and a guest on Veterans Day (Monday, November 11th).

“The Hall of Fame is so appreciative of the brave men and women who served, and those who continue to serve, in the United States Armed Forces,” said Hall of Fame Executive Director Edward Brophy. “We are honored to offer free admission as our way to say thank your for their selfless military service.”

The Hall of Fame chronicles the history of the sport with unique and educational exhibits including fist castings, boxing robes, boxing shoes, statues and audio/visual stations highlighting classic boxing matches. The Hall of Fame Wall features photographs and biographies of all inductees. The world famous Madison Square Garden boxing ring that Muhammad Ali and “Smokin’” Joe Frazier fought “The Fight of the Century” in is on permanent display in Canastota. The ring was used at the “Mecca of Boxing” for 82 years (1925 to 2007) and was donated to the Hall by MSG in 2007.

A not-for-profit organization, the International Boxing Hall of Fame opened to the public in 1989 in Canastota, New York and is located at Exit 34 of the New York State Thruway. Hours of operation are Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
