The Hope & Vision - By Brian W. Zelley


The idea for a BC Amateur Boxing Hall of Fame.

THere are countless names to recognize, two from my experiences from 1963 to 2010
would be Frankie Scott (boxer) and Elio Ius (builder)

In recent days there are 24 names that will be considered for the first ever
selection to a BRITISH COLUMBIA AMATEUR BOXING HALL OF FAME.

The Builders will be chosen from ten names:
Bert Lowes, Dave Brown, Elio Ius, fred Fuller, Howard Curling,
George Shiels, Pat O'Reilly, Rick Brough, Stan Smith and Tommy Paonessa.

The Boxers:
Eddy Haddad, Harold Mann, Jimmy Walters, Dick Findlay, Frank Scott,
Fred Desrosiers, Freddy Fuller, Roger Adolph, Chris Ius,Les Hamilton,
Sid McKnight, Dale Walters, Manny Sobral and Donnie Orr.
