  • Founded by Everett L. Sanders in 1980, the World Boxing Hall of Fame is located in Southern California.
  • Since its inception it has never had a permanent location or museum, but recently (2005) it partnered with the 121-year-old Los Angeles Athletic Club in downtown Los Angeles, where it will establish its permanent home.
  • Plans to open a "Walk of Fame" museum in early 2006.
  • It annual ceremony is usually held each 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.
  • A souvenir program is given to all attendees.
