Our goal

It is the intention of the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame to put on terrific special events for you culminating each year with our Induction Ceremony and Dinner in Las Vegas, the boxing capital of the world. We will also have other events, not only in Las Vegas but Northern Nevada as well. Nevada has a rich boxing tradition throughout the state and we want to recognize it. We’ll be reaching out to you and hope you will respond in kind.
