GJWB is a PROUD sponsor of the International Women's Boxing Hall of Fame Awards - taking place August 14 2021
It is an honour to help celebrate this decorated list of twenty-four international inductees from 2020 & 2021. They are boxers and women's boxing enthusiasts who have paved the way for us to continue to do what we love and create the future women's boxing deserves.
This will be the seventh induction celebration and the largest in the history of the IWBHF. This Hall of Fame dinner, induction ceremony and reception will be taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada August 14th at the Orleans Hotel & Casino. The evening kicks off with a meet and greet session for the honorees and invited guests, followed by the IWBHF tradition of having every female boxer sign the historic 7’ ft. high historical pioneer banner.
Guest speakers include: Christy Martin, Layla McCarter, Bianca Gutierrez, Daisy Lang, and Graciela Casillas.
