The Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame Inductions

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame (ACBHOF) has announced its 2019 Induction Class. The Induction Weekend will take place at The Claridge, a Radisson Hotel located at Park Place & Boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey on June 21 – 23, 2019.

The Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame otherwise know as ACBHOF has annouced the 2019 Inductions.  The weekend of June 21-23, 2019 is when the Induction weekend will take place. It will take place at The Claridge, at Park Place & Boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

ACBHOF President and Founder Ray McCline has spoken of his delight at this year’s inductions below:

The 2019 inductees in the Fighter category are:

Bernard Hopkins,
Tim Witherspoon, Sr.
Kevin Watts,
Virgil Hill, Sr.
Iran Barkley,
John Brown
Roberto Duran, Sr.
Micky Ward

Trainers and Cutmen:

Ace Marotta English “Bouie” Fisher

Non-Participants–Special Contributors:

Butch Lewis,
Bobby Goodman,
Stan Hoffman,
Nigel Collins
Henry Hascup,
Jimmy Binns Sr.
Tom Kaczmarek,
Tony Orlando Jr.
Rhonda Utley-Herring

The third annual class will include 19 inductees. Bernard Hopkins will receive his first Hall of Fame Boxing Induction

“I feel appreciated and it’s starting to settle in that I’m near that mark of living legend. I don’t see myself as a living legend. Let other people decide that. This is a great honour and I’m grateful for the Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame for making this happen,” Hopkins said in a November 16 RingTV interview with Joseph Santoliquito.

“Watch who you co-sign for; you can’t sell me black to get in the door. You can’t sell me white to get in the door. You can’t sell me half white or half black or none of that to get in the door. But you can sell me LOYALTY” said former two-division champion Bernard Hopkins.

Particularly exciting for fans of the sport is the inclusion of some of the most illustrious and celebrated men from the world of boxing.  Names included in the line-up for the 2019 induction class are Nigel Collins, Butch Lewis and English “Bouie” Fisher.  For many perhaps the most exciting inclusion is that of Harry Hascup, the president of the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame.  None deserve this accolade more than him.
Although the list will be updated regularly we know that the inductees will be from three different categories: they are Special Contributors, Fighter and Trainer & Cut Men.  For many people named, Atlantic City is a second home and this accolade will ensure that their name lives on there.
We can expect a series of updates before the event but for fans of boxing, the lineup as it stands now makes any new information almost irrelevant.  The The Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame (ACBHOF) has got it right again – and as per usual!

“It was a great honor to hear I was going to be inducted into Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame. Atlantic City is my second home, and as a pro fighter I’ve fought numerous times in this great city. It’s a great boxing town and it is an honor to be inducted into the Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame” says Micky Ward.

NRL Finals Loom as Regular Season Concludes

The first fixtures of the National Rugby League's finals series are locked in after the final round of the regular season came to an end today. The Competitors While Penrith Panthers had already secured the minor premiership and the top eight were determined two rounds ago, some key positions were still open and the race for those positions made for some entertaining footy. The Newcastle Knights failed to hold sixth place, going down on Friday to a...

Russian GP – Race Preview

Russian Grand Prix can be a boring race so let's hope this race gets off to a great start. The only memory I have of the Russian GP is Valtteri Bottas letting Lewis Hamilton win. Last race at Mugello was an exciting race. With two red flags and one horrible crash. And Ferrari 1000 celebration wasn't the best either, but that might be because of the strict rules now during COVID 19. So I am happy...

Benny Leonard: Always A Champion

If you sat down with a group of boxing fans under the age of say, 50, and began to talk about whether Benny Leonard really is a Top-10 all-time fighter, you'd probably have a cacophony of voices barking at you about how great "Sugar" Ray really was. Tell them you were talking about Benny Leonard though, and you might hear a lot of "Who's that?" from the same group. But Benny Leonard most definitely belongs...

The Green Light: The Rugby Championship 2020

The Rugby Championship tournament - previously known as the Tri-Nations - was inaugurated in 1996 with the three rugby-rich countries; Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, all contesting for the converted trophy.

IPL Talking Points

Efficient CSK get the job done again Before the tournament began, the Chennai Super Kings were touted to struggle by everybody analysing the game. But, on the opening day, post the opening powerplay overs, MS Dhoni proved once again why the IPL betting odds are always in their favor. From a position where they could have chased a tall score, CSK restricted MI to a chaseable total and then led by solid innings from...

Rahul’s Historic Ton Thumps Bangalore

KL Rahul struck the highest score by an Indian in Indian Premier League as Kings XI Punjab beat Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore by 97 runs. Rahul, who scored 132 not out, also achieved the highest individual score by a captain and the best for a Kings XI Punjab player with a generous Royal Challengers Bangalore bearing the brunt of his assault, offering little in the form of resistance. After being invited to bat first, KXIP...

The Torchbearers Of Modern Football

We are standing at the end of an era that was tinted with brightness and glam. Two of the greatest sportsmen ever to grace the surface of earth are at the twilight of their careers. They are aliens, some say. Some say they are superheroes in shorts. Two names at the heart of the footballing world, for the best part of two decades. The torchbearers of modern day football. The pace-setters of the business...

Different Options For Purchasing Golf Shoes

The performance of the golfer depends to some extent on the golfing gear and equipment which he is using. Usually golfers are wearing special golf shoes, which are designed so that the golfer can play his shots comfortably, without slipping. Hence many of...

Russell Wilson Is An All-Time Great QB

Russell Wilson, 0 MVPs, 0 MVP votes, 0 respect. He is one of the best quarterbacks I've ever seen, and he is showing himself to be the MVP so far this year. Russell Wilson at every stage of his career has consistently been elite and has carried the Seahawks into relevancy. He is underrated, has been elite, and has been one of the best QBs in the world since he's gotten here. How is it that...
