Awards Dinner tomorrow night at MGM Grand Hotel - No Females on the "Honors" list...

(MAY 5) WBAN has received press information in regards to the 86 Annual Awards Dinner, presented by The awards dinner presented by the Boxing Writers Association of America,  that will take place tomorrow night at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.  

In receiving the materials on this event,  I checked over who was being honored ---and noticed that there were no females picked on the "Honors" list.   Link to who is honored at the dinner

In light of the fact that the sport in present time has evolved into including females that it would be more than appropriate to at least consider this fact---and at least consider including women in the awards. 

In doing this story---it was pointed out to me that Kathy Duva was nominated in two categories this year---so I did go to their website to see the history of their annual awards.  In the last five years, not including 2011---there are no females listed on their website for honors or awards, for the exception of Dr. Margaret Goodman in 2006.
