On behalf of the staff of the International Boxing Hall of Fame & Museum, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude and appreciation to the entire community of Canastota for another successful Induction Weekend.
The event chairpersons, volunteers and sponsors, along with the residents of this fabulous village worked together to make the 30th Anniversary Induction Weekend a “knockout” celebration.
From Thursday evening’s Fireworks Show to Sunday’s Parade of Champions, every event was magical and enjoyed by fans from throughout the United States and abroad
Thank you so much for the hospitality bestowed upon this year’s invited boxing celebrities, Parade Grand Marshal Holt McCallany and the thousands of boxing fans from throughout the world who leave our village overwhelmed and deeply touched by the warmth of our community.
It was a “knockout” weekend and we look forward to next year as we celebrate our 31st Induction Weekend.
