Founded by Everett L. Sanders in 1980, the World Boxing Hall of Fame (WBHOF) is located in Southern California. It is one of the two recognized "world-wide" boxing halls of fame, along with the International Boxing Hall of Fame (IBHOF) in New York state.

Since its inception the WBHOF has never had a permanent location or museum, which has allowed the younger IBHOF--which does have a building and museum--to garner more publicity and prestige. Recently (2005) however, the WBHOF partnered with the 121-year-old Los Angeles Athletic Club in downtown Los Angeles, where it will establish its permanent home. It plans to open a "Walk of Fame" museum in early 2006.

Its annual ceremony is usually held every October. Inductees traditionally received a plaque and medallion, as well as miscellaneous mementoes. Starting in 2004, a 12-inch tall bronze scuplture, entitled "The Prizefighter" and designed by artist and boxing trainer Steven Harpst, is given to each inductee, along with the medallion. A souvenir program is given to all attendees.
