Just to let you know, I was on 2 committees, the modern and oldtimers, and I am proud to say that I picked all 6, 3 in each category, that were elected.

Also, Larry Hazzard, who happens to be a very good friend of mine, was elected. Hazzard was rated as the top referee in the business before he became the New Jersey State Athletic Commissioner, where he stayed for 22 years. He now is one of the top people in the IBF.

CANASTOTA, NY - DECEMBER 8, 2009 - The International Boxing Hall of Fame and Museum announced today the newest class of inductees to enter the Hall. Living inductees include light flyweight champion Jung-Koo Chang (South Korea), featherweight champion Danny “Little Red” Lopez (USA), manager Shelly Finkel (USA), referee / commissioner Larry Hazzard (USA), promoter Wilfried Sauerland (Germany), matchmaker Bruce Trampler (USA) and journalist Ed Schuyler (USA).



“We’re extremely excited about the Class of 2010 and very much looking forward to honoring the 21st class of inductees,” said Executive Director Edward Brophy. “All living inductees are anticipated to attend and participate in 2010 Hall of Fame Weekend festivities.”



The 21st Annual Hall of Fame Weekend is scheduled for June 10-13th in Canastota, NY. Over 20 events, including a golf tournament, banquet, parade and autograph card show, are planned. An impressive celebrity lineup of boxing greats of yesterday and today will attend this year’s Induction Weekend. The highlight of the weekend will be the Official Enshrinement Ceremony on the Hall of Fame Museum Grounds in Canastota, New York on Sunday, June 13th to welcome the newest members.



The Hall of Fame also released names of posthumous honorees: light heavyweight Lloyd Marshall in the Modern Category; featherweight champion Young Corbett II, lightweight champion Rocky Kansas and light heavyweight and heavyweight contender Billy Miske in the Old-Timer Category; broadcaster Howard Cosell in the Observer Category; and Paddington Tom Jones in the Pioneer Category. Inductees were voted in by members of the Boxing Writers Association and a panel of international boxing historians.



For more information on the events planned for the 2010 International Boxing Hall of Fame Weekend, please call the Hall of Fame at (315) 697-7095.

Either Chang or Yuh were bound to get in eventually I guess. He is the first Korean to make it in correct?

Cant belive after 80 years, former lightweight champion Rocky Kansas is on the votes to get in(Does not mean he make it though.)

The guy gave Benny Leonard 2 great fights(Or so I heard lol) and beat the hard hitter Lew Tendler, for which is he is most rember for. Wins over Dundee, and Mitchell dont hurt his standed.

Now Most guys dont have him in the top 100 lightweights of all time about, because of lack of footage. That and being forgotting.

I relly hope he gets the votes to get into the hall, he earn it, but I dont think he get in.

Isn't the article saying that he's been elected though? Unless I'm misreading it.

No, they do more than one of each per year. For instance - Olivares, Sanchez, Patterson, and Tiger are all "modern era", and all class of '91.

I'm glad to see Miske finally get in. I'll be finished with a draft of a biography about him within the next couple of months.
