    IBHOF 2006 inductees

    IBHOF 2006 inductees!

    Thursday, January 12 2006

    The International Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota, NY, has announced the newest class of inductees to enter the Hall. Living inductees include junior flyweight champions Michael Carbajal and Humberto Gonzalez, historian/publisher Hank Kaplan and promoter/manager Jarvis Astaire. Posthumous honorees are three-time lightweight champion Edwin Rosario, welterweight/middleweight champion Lou Brouillard, light heavyweight champion Jimmy Slattery and middleweight champion Teddy Yarosz, trainer Whitey Bimstein, promoter Rodolfo Sabbatini, publisher/editor Stanley Weston and Jem Carney.

    not bad,

    Was kinda of shock to know Slattery was not in the hall.

    I'm delighted for the guys that got in - especially Hank Kaplan and Yarosz - but very, very dissapointed that Holman Williams never made it (again).

    Can somebody post the list of the original nominees? I know it on the 'Zone a few weeks/months ago... thanks in advance...

    Re: IBHOF

    I can think of several flyweights who are more deserving! Though I was really glad to see that Yarosz was finally inducted!

    UNREAL...Yuh doesn't get in with Carbajal and Gonzlaes. Rosario? Sheesh!

    Someone who is on the voting panel must know - or be able to find out - how the voting actually broke down.

    I would be interested to see the number of votes cast for those on the ballot.

    Re: IBHOF

    I have to commend you on the fighters that you picked. How many voters are there in all?

    Thanks TKO Tom.

    If you voted for ten - and everyone else votes for their own ten from that list of 45 - is it then the three fighters with the most top ten votes that get elected?

    Do your own ten get ranked 1-10 or does their position on the list of ten not matter?

    Knowing how many voters there are would give an idea of how many votes someone would need to get elected.

    Also, who put the list of 45 together to start with?

    Every member of the Boxing Writers Association of America is sent a ballot and they choose ten fighters who they feel are deserving. The votes are tabulated by a nationally recognized accounting firm. The three fighters with the most votes overall get inducted into the HOF.

    I'm not sure how many individual voters there are. I think over 100 but less than 200.

    A committee at the Hall of fame puts the list together.

    For this year I am disappointed that Edwin Rosario got in. I don't think he is as deserving as many other fighters on the list.

    Re: IBHOF

    Thanks for the list Tom -- and I like your choices!

    With all due respect to the late Edwin Rosario and his family, I agree and don't think he should be in the IBHOF...

    Re: IBHOF

    Well . . . maybe Edwin doesn't meet the strictest criteria for inclusion in those hallowed halls, but he was a four-time world champ, he could hit as hard as any 135 lb. human being I've ever seen, and he turned a strutting, self-aggrandizing, shit-spouting, snake-wearing Livingstone Bramble into a barking mutt in under two rounds, and for that alone, gentlemen, Mr. Rosario sits in an exalted seat in my Hall of Fame.

    Thanks again Tom.

    I too would like to commend you on your choices for induction. Maybe next year for Holman Williams, Eddie Booker, Lloyd Marshall and cocoa Kid.

    Thanks for the kind words guys.

    I spent a lot of time on my choices and I weighed them carefully. If a person really does that it becomes quite a difficult process.

    I did vote for Brian Mitchell. If you look at his career and body of work I think he's right up there with anyone. I'd like to see him get in one day.

    I try to go to the induction weekend festivities every
    year, but I gotta tell ya, this year's crop is nothing to
    get excited about. Not sure if I'll attend.
