British Columbia Amateur Boxing Hall of Fame
BC AMATEUR BOXING HALL OF FAME: By Brian Zelley
The BC Amateur Boxing Hall of Fame is taking shape with the help of some volunteers from current and past eras of amateur boxing in British Columbia. At the present time, a list of potential inductees is being prepared. As of today, thirty names have been submitted which range from former Vancouver Sun member William (Billy) J. Finlay, to some past boxers that have competed in International tournaments from Olympic boxers such as Dick Findlay and Fred Desrosiers and stars of the sixties such as Freddy Fuller and Frank Scott. Others listed include coaches such as Elio Ius or all rounders such as Stanley F. Smith.
It is hoped that up to 100 names will be submitted before the selection process takes place with the official actual announcement to take place between December 25 to 31st. As this will be the first induction it is hoped that seven to ten names will be selected from boxers, coaches, officials, club and teams.
