International Boxing Hall of Fame


International Boxing Hall of Fame

The modern International Boxing Hall of Fame (IBHOF) is located in Canastota, New York, United States, within driving distance from the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown and the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Oneonta. The IBHOF is one of two recognized international boxing halls of fame, with the other being the World Boxing Hall of Fame.

The first Boxing Hall of Fame was sponsored by "Ring" magazine and located for decades at the offices of the Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. However, in 1990, as a consequence of an initiative by Ed Brophy to honor Canastota's world boxing champions, Carmen Basilio and Basilio's nephew, Billy Backus, the village of Canastota inaugurated the new museum, which showcases boxing's rich history. Multi-award winning artist Richard T. Slone was named their official artist of the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1997 and remains so to this day.

There are ceremonies conducted every year to honor the inductees and the ceremonies are attended by many former world boxing champions, boxing celebrities and Hollywood celebrities each year.

Professional boxers have to wait five years after retirement to be eligible for election into the Hall of Fame.

On December 11, 2007, the Hall of Fame announced its Class of 2008. Former heavyweight champion Larry Holmes, junior welterweight champion Eddie Perkins, promoter Mogens Palle, promoter Frank Warren, journalist Dave Anderson, and journalist Joe Koizumi are the living inductees.
