(DEC 4) SPRINGFIELD, NEW JERSEY---One of the long-time IBF members and ring officials, Sparkle Lee will be inducted in the International Women Boxing Hall of Fame.

According to Jeanette Salazar, the IBF/USBA Director of Public Relations, the induction is well deserve and the IBF/USBA has congratulated Sparkle Lee for this greatest honor in the Sweet Science. 

The International Women's Boxing Hall of Fame (IWBHF.com has announced eight women who have been voted into the 2015 class. The group includes six boxers from the modern era of female boxing (1990-2010), one pioneer female fighter of the 1950s and a ring official who trail-blazed past the gender barriers in the field of refereeing.

The IWBHF induction will be held on July 11, 2015, 1:30-4:30 PM in the Panorama Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, FL., in conjunction with the 2015 National Women's Golden Gloves Tournament, the finals of which will be held that evening.

The Champion’s daughter Laila Ali is among the right women to be inducted as she joins Sparkle Lee, Laura Serrano, Dierdre Gogarty, Jeannine Garside, Terri Moss, Ann Wolfe and Phyllis Kugler.

The 2015 inductees will bring to fifteen the number of honorees inducted into the IWBHF in the initial two years and this July's ceremony is expected to generate the same type of fan and media excitement and exposure that the initial event engendered.

The IWBHF induction ceremony is a signal event that serves to raise the awareness of the sport of Women's boxing by honoring those individuals who have significantly contributed to the sport and who, in many cases, continue to be active in support, advocacy and growth of the sport.

Meanwhile the IBF/USBA Public Relations Czar sharing an article about a boxing program, which member Tom Schrek is involved with in upstate NY, that helps special needs children immensely.

Salazar concluded by encouraging IBF/USBA Global members to read the attached article by saying that “If you have some time I highly recommend the read. It's nice to see how boxing has made such a difference in the lives of these children”.
