Once again, the Connecticut Boxing Hall of Fame has elected a fantastic class of inductees.
We are excited about inducting two world class Connecticut fighters, WNBC Middleweight Champion Elvin Ayala from New Haven and Hartford’s own, IBO Super Bantamwieght Champion Mike Oliver. Joining them will be top Connecticut referee, Danny Schiavone, long-time trainer Jose “Papo” Colon from Hartford and manager Mike Criscio from New Haven. Rounding out the class of 2021 will be Frank Russo, who was integral in bringing boxing back to Hartford in the 1970s.
We will also be honoring the following extraordinary men and women that comprise our class of 2020: Steve Carr, Eddie Dolan, Barbara Dunn, Al Gainer, Mosey King, William J. “Bill” Lee and Jimmy Leto.
It promises be a great night for the entire boxing community…the inductees, their families
and friends but most importantly, our Connecticut boxing fans!
The 16th anniversary is sure to be our best dinner to date! The Connecticut Boxing Hall of Fame invites you to join our special honored guests and many notable celebrities in attendance at a gala reception beginning at 6:30 p.m. with dinner to follow.
