Laila Ali headlines International Women’s Boxing Hall of Fame Class of 2015

Laila Ali, who in the early and middle years of the new century, was the acknowledged “face” of Women’s boxing during what will likely be remembered as the final flourishing time for the sport in the United States, will enter the International Women’s Boxing Hall of Fame as part of the 2015 class.

Ali will be joined by other “modern era” boxers, Laura Serrano, Jeannine Garside, Ann Wolfe, Deirdre Gogarty and Terri Moss along with NYSAC referee Sparkle Lee and Phyllis Kugler (posthumous), a pioneer boxer in the 1950s. The induction ceremony will be held on Saturday, July 11 in the Crystal Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six in Fort Lauderdale, FL (3:00-6:30 PM). Similar to the 2014 ceremony, this year’s induction will be conducted in conjunction with the National Women’s Golden Gloves tournament.
