Wayne McCullough To Make First Visit to Canastota
CANASTOTA, NY – MARCH 14, 2013 – The International Boxing Hall of Fame announced former bantamweight champion Wayne “Pocket Rocket” McCullough will make his first visit to Canastota for festivities planned for the 24th Annual Hall of Fame Induction Weekend set for June 6-9th.
“McCullough was an aggressive, crowd-pleasing fighter,” said Hall of Fame director Edward Brophy. “We are really looking forward to welcoming him to Canastota for the first time to experience Hall of Fame Weekend.”
Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, an accomplished amateur, McCullough won gold at the 1990 Commonwealth Games and silver at the 1992 Olympic Games. He turned pro in 1993 and began a steady march to the world bantamweight title. McCullough won the NABF title in 1994 before annexing the WBC crown from Yasuei Yakushiji in Japan in 1995. He successfully defended against Johnny Bredahl (TKO 8) and Jose Luis Bueno (W 12) before vacating to campaign at super bantamweight in 1997. The “Pocket Rocket,” who was trained by Hall of Famer Eddie Futch, last fought in 2008 and has a record of 27-7 (18 KOs).
Events planned for the weekend include a banquet, a night of welterweight warriors, parade, golf tournament, boxing autograph card show, cocktail party and the Official Induction Ceremony honoring the Class of 2013. Inductees include two-division champion Arturo “Thunder” Gatti (posthumous), five-time world champion Virgil “Quicksilver” Hill and two-time light flyweight champion Myung-Woo Yuh in the Modern category; “Let’s Get It On” referee Mills Lane, ring announcer Jimmy Lennon, Jr. and journalist Colin Hart. Posthumous inductees in the Old-Timer, Pioneer, Non-Participant and Observer categories will also be honored.
An impressive list of over 40 boxing greats from the United States and abroad are scheduled to participate in weekend festivities.
