  • 2) The recipient must combine with his high place in the ranking of fighters a similar position as a sportsman.
  • 3) He must associate with the abilities as a fighter good public relations and a reputation for clean and moral living.
  • 4) The boxer receiving the award must be recognized as an example to the growing American youth.
