This weekend is the International Boxing Hall of Fame's 30th annual induction ceremony and we joined them for the 8th year in a row for a live broadcast to help kick off the incredible weekend!
It takes a whole lot of planning and organizing to put on such a spectacular weekend and we were joined by just a few of the dedicated people VOLUNTEERING around the clock behind the scenes to make it all happen!
Ross Stagnitti helps put on the big event and he shared some of the history of the International Boxing Hall of Fame that's right in Central New York's backyard. John Hunt works with the hall of fame as well, but he creates the lifelike fist casts that immortalize the iconic fists of the fighters. And Sarah Forth just joined the team this year as Parade of Champions Co-Chair where she helps organize all the community organizations and bands marching in Sunday's parade. Don't forget, B104.7 will be in the parade as well!
Then, some of this weekend's stars stopped by, including former boxer Julian "The Hawk" Jackson, trainer and ESPN broadcaster Teddy Atlas, lifelong promoter and matchmaker Don Elbaum and more! Listen to the Tom & Becky podcasts to hear their stories and more!
