LAS VEGAS, NV -- Ryan Burton catches up with former champion Mavin Hagler to get his thoughts on a variety of topics at the Nevada State Boxing Hall of Fame.
The Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame was held on Saturday night, hosted by Academy Award-nominated actress Rosie Perez and International Boxing Hall of Fame broadcaster Al Bernstein at Caesars Palace.
Among the honorees for the 2015 event were former undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis; ex-middleweight champion Marvelous Marvin Hagler; former middleweight, super welterweight and welterweight champion Felix “Tito” Trinidad, former linear featherweight champion Marco Antonio Barrera, ex-light heavyweight champion Eddie Mustafa Muhammad and former super lightweight champ Roger Mayweather.
Boxing’s pound-for-pound king, Floyd Mayweather, was honored as the Nevada Fighter of the Year, and he was presented the award by legendary Hall of Famer Sugar Ray Leonard.
The Hall was founded in 2013 by Marotta, a noted boxing broadcaster. Its chief operating officer is Michelle Corrales-Lewis, whose late husband, Diego Corrales, was an inaugural inductee into the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame.
