IWBHF Begins Planning for Second Induction
Press Release/IWBHF
September 11, 2014
     
   
   

 

(SEPT 11)  The International Women's Boxing Hall of Fame [IWBHF], following the historical induction of seven women into the IWBHF ranks, has begun preliminary preparation for the second ceremony, scheduled for Summer 2015.

Speaking of the July 10, 2014 ceremony in a recent interview, Sue Fox, founder of the IWBHF and WBAN, noted, "the first award celebration in Florida turned out better and more successful than I ever even imagined." Media coverage was highlighted by a "live feed" stream on www.iwbhf.com  and coverage on numerous Internet boxing sites, extending to such main stream publications as Ring Magazine.

Additionally, following the event, social media vehicles, including Facebook, bristled with positive reaction and congratulatory messages, from the boxing community, praising the concept of a female boxing hall of fame and the first class of inductees.

It was clearly the event of the year in the sport of Women's boxing, prompting the question "how can the second year be improved?" First and foremost, the sport's fans, who have voiced their overwhelming support for this Hall of Fame and the initial group of inductees, will continue to be the primary starting point for the induction process in 2015. Fan nominations will continue to be accepted by the IWBHF as the initial step in determining the finalists for the 2015 induction. Given the large volume and wide diversity of these nominations in 2014, an additional processing step will be added for 2015. In lieu of the fan nominations going directly to the Election Committee for final selection of the inductees, the field will be refined via a review of the of the nominations by a three person review board.

The resulting group of nominees will then be presented to the Election Committee for the final induction vote, during which there could, possibly, be slight revisions to the final list of nominees. The three person committee will be comprised of: Sue Fox and Rick McLean and Bernie McCoy, two active boxing writers who cover the sport on a daily and continuing basis.

If you would like to nominate a candidate for 2015, use the link on this release. The inductees for 2015 will be formally announced in January of 2015. Nomination Form
