Among the honorees were “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler, Mike Tyson, Ray Mercer, Bernard Fernandez, Joe Gatti, Gabe LaConte, Julie Lederman, Sal Lopez, Carl Moretti, Barbara Perez, Frank Savannah and Otha Tyson. “Boxer of the Year” of the year was NABO jr middleweight champion Glen Tapia.

Also honored posthumously were referee J. Harry Ertle and boxer Carlos Hernandez. For more than 15 years J. Harry Ertle refereed over 1,000 bouts, including the Jack Dempsey-Georges Carpentier world title match in 1921. Carlos Hernandez was a hard nosed journeyman that fought several heavyweight big names during the 80’s, such as George Foreman, Smokin’ Bert Copper and Donovan “Razor” Ruddock.
