Link to the complete Photo Gallery posting of the Boxing Hall of Fame Ceremony

On November 4th , 2016 I had the honor to be in the same room with 500 of the "movers and shakers " of Illinois boxing. Once again,  the Illinois Boxing Hall of Fame held their banquet and induction ceremony for the Class of 2016 twenty- five inductees at the Abbington Distinctive Banquets located in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.  As always , it was a great honor for me to capture images of so many of the Boxing Greats of Illinois both past and present.
