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.
Heavyweight hero Brian London and the ever-popular Sammy Mccarthy are inducted into the Early Modern Era category.
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.
