The Boxing Writers Association of America is pleased to announce that Steve Farhood is the 2010 recipient of the Nat Fleischer award for "Excellence in Boxing Journalism."

Steve Farhood is a 32-year veteran of the sport. In 1980, he launched KO Magazine. From 1989 to 1997, he was Editor in Chief of Ring Magazine.

From 1993 to 2008 Farhood served as the BWAA's First Vice-President. Twice, he garnered first place finishes in the Barneys writing contest.

Currently, most associate Farhood with his role as the analyst for Showtime's popular ShoBox series. He is still very active as a writer, serving as an associate editor and columnist for the British "Boxing Monthly."

The Fleischer is the third major award that Farhood has won from the BWAA. Previously he was voted the Taub award for "Excellence in Broadcast Journalism," and the Walker award for "Long and Meritorious Service."
