The induction of this year’s boxing Hall of Fame was supposed to be in June 14 but the International Boxing Hall of Fame decided to postpone the event due to the pandemic coronavirus.

Juan Manuel “Dynamita” Marquez, Bernard Hopkins and “Sugar” Shane Mosley are the notables for the award.

Marquez and Mosley were once the opponent of the Philippines’ boxing senator Manny Pacquiao.

They will now be paired with the next batch of HOF in 2021 as the awarding will be in June 10-13 next year.

“By honoring the two classes in a one-of-a-kind induction weekend, the Hall of Fame will be able to put all the winning combinations together for the inductees, fans and the entire sport of boxing,” said Edward Brophy the International Boxing Hall of Fame executive director.
