Don Fraser, a friend and mentor for many years, will be honored in a special “Salute To Don Fraser” this Saturday, October 20, 2018 by the National Boxing Hall of Fame. Also honored will be the latest class of 2018 inductees. The gala event will be held at The Sportsman Lodge, 12825 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, California.
I consider Don Fraser to be the “Mr. Boxing” of my era. His involvement in boxing ranges from that of a promoter, to matchmaker, publicist, writer, corner man, and Executive Officer for the California Athletic Commission. In addition, Don recently retired as President and Founder of the California Boxing Hall of Fame. He truly is a wealth of boxing information.
With many awards already on his resume, such as being inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame in 1987, and the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2005, he can now add the National Boxing Hall of Fame to the list of honors he has received.
Congratulations – Don Fraser … a class act!
