Glenn Feldman has always had the write stuff when it comes to boxing.
Feldman was once a sports writer who covered the sport. He published a paper called Hartford Sports Extra for seven years. Feldman became passionate about boxing to the point that he became a judge. Still, he wanted to do more.
It was Feldman who came up with the idea of the Connecticut Boxing Hall of Fame. He has been the only president of the CBHOF since it came about in 2004, with its first induction dinner in 2005. The creator is now a deserving inductee.
Feldman’s career as a judge has taken him all over the world. He once judged two world title fights over two nights in two continents — England and the United States.
Feldman has judged 97 professional fights and is a member of the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO. His travels have taken him to such countries as Canada, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Panama, Scotland and Thailand.
A financial advisor for Merrill Lynch in West Hartford, Feldman is married with two children, and they are no doubt proud of his achievements in the fight game.
