THE third an­nual Bri­tish Box­ing Hall of Fame cer­e­mony – the brain­child of Dave Har­ris – is a roar­ing suc­cess in Hast­ings.

Lead­ing the way for Mod­ern Era in­ductees is Frank Bruno, Steve Robin­son, Carl Froch and Dave Boy Green.

Frank War­ren is present to ac­cept his in­duc­tion as a Pro­moter, Dai Gar­dener en­ters in the Man­agers’ cat­e­gory and Robert Mccracken en­ters as a Trainer.

Be­hind-the-scenes stal­warts like Larry Parkes, Bob Edge­worth, Dereck Rowe, Tommy Mel­lis and Chas Tay­lor achieve long over­due recognition with Life­time Ser­vice awards, while Lee Pullen is in­ducted as an Am­a­teur Trainer, vested leg­end John Lyon is re­warded in the Am­a­teur cat­e­gory, Dean Bramhald is de­lighted to find his way into the Hall via the 100 Plus Boxer cat­e­gory, and Fred­die Mills, Jim Driscoll and Len Wood­hall all re­ceive post­hu­mous in­duc­tions.

The likes of Alan Min­ter, Tony Sib­son, Johnny Oliver, John H Stracey, Richie Wood­hall, John Con­teh, Richie Davies, Robert Wil­liams, Prince Rod­ney and Steve Holdsworth are in at­ten­dance to cheer on the in­ductees as they re­ceive their awards.
