The Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame has announced a stellar cast of 18 honorees, 13 living, to its second annual Class Of Inductees. The selections were made by a panel of 33 voters from Nevada-based boxing media, past inductees and NVBHOF Board members. The 18 inductees come from 10 categories, two of which were new: Adoptive Residents (for boxers who moved to and resided in Nevada after their careers), and Pioneer Class (for those who prominently contributed to Nevada Boxing prior to 1960).
The 2014 Class of Inductees is dominated by former Heavyweight Champions. They are “Big” George Foreman, Evander “Real Deal” Holyfield who were voted in as Non-Nevada residents, the late Sonny Liston as a Nevada-resident, Joe Louis as an Adoptive Nevada resident and Jack Dempsey in the Pioneer Class. Other boxers elected in various categories include “Hands of Stone” Roberto Duran, the always exciting Cornelius Boza-Edwards, and the “Old Mongoose” Archie Moore.
