Eddie Montalvo (Advocate/Mentor), currently sits on the Executive Board of Directors of the International Women's Boxing Hall of Fame as its Executive Director. He has been in some way or form associated with the sport of boxing his entire life.

At the tender age of 6, he fell in love with boxing after going to see his uncle (at Heart) Puerto Rican Olympian and WBC/WBA World Light Heavyweight Boxing Champion Jose “Chegui“ Torres in Madison Square Garden. “When I saw “Tio Chegui“ (I called him "Tio"), knock this guy out I knew I wanted to box,” Montalvo said. He fought his first amateur boxing match in the Summer of 1969, and never looked back.

In his teens, Montalvo competed in local amateur boxing events in New York, Detroit and Ohio, while training with Mickey and Negra Rosario (PAL, East Harlem). In 1979, he won Bronze Gloves in the NYC Golden Gloves in the 139lb division while under the tutelage of the late Ralph Rosario, boxing coach of the Boys Club of New York, East Harlem, but missed going to London with the team.

In 1984, Eddie again attempted to win the NYC Golden Gloves but fell short in the Quarterfinals. Eddie missed out on the 1984 PAL tournament and the '84 Empire State Games while being mentored and trained by Ofcr. Sal Corrente (NYPD Ret.) at the Yonkers PAL Boxing gym and at the U.S. Olympic Training Center, Lake Placid, NY., but returned in 1985 to win the PAL Eastern Regionals Middleweight Championship and a Bronze Medal at the 1985 Empire State Games, Buffalo, NY.

After the 1985 Empire State Games, Montalvo relocated to Los Angeles where he first worked for the Law Offices of McGuire & Herrera and at Viacom/Group W Productions - Burbank, California; then alongside Christopher Gray (Christopher Gray Casting - Los Angeles, http://chirstophergraycasting.squarespace.com/credits-1/), for close to 20 years (with some time in between, Montalvo added) as an Assistant Casting Agent, learning the ins and outs of the film industry.

In late 2007, Montalvo decided to assist his childhood friend the late World Boxing Champion Hector Macho Camacho (RIP) and, as a result, began working with other athletes in the sport of boxing, in and outside of the ring as an advocate, advisor and mentor.

For the past decade Montalvo has been a key player (behind the scenes) in some of women's boxing's greatest fighters' careers.

"I entered into the 'Advocacy' for better representation and equality within the Sport of Women's Boxing because I felt (feel) I can make a difference. I care and have deep respect and admiration for these ladies, these athletes, and I am confident that the sport and its athletes will earn the respect it well deserves as time progresses. And I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to be part of the sport where it counts." - Eddie Montalvo

Eddie Montalvo was elected by WBAN's and the International Women's Boxing Hall of Fame's Founder and President Sue TL Fox to be her 'Right-Hand Man' (Executive Director, IWBHF) because of the passion and transparency Montalvo has demonstrated for the past decade.

"Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." - Eddie Montalvo

Montalvo also has a passion for mentoring and is always seeking opportunities to mentor. As a PAL Alumni and Champion he enjoys working closely with the Police Athletic League. He finds that bridging the gap between youths and law enforcement is imperative to healthy communities.

Sue TL Fox is a former boxer/kick boxer and a retired Law Enforcement Officer who still works closely with L.E.
