The Fight For Your Future Initiative

AAIB Board Member and NYAC Chairwoman Melvina Lathan has teamed up with CUNY and the Daily News Charities to provide enrollment and financial assistance to amateur and professional boxers in the city.

“‘The point of this program is to give fighters other options and to take all of those great attributes they have [in the ring] to have successful careers in other areas and not feel locked in,’ said Alan Dobrin, the COO of CUNY.”

Congratulations Melvina on creating another great resource for boxers.

"The hardest working person in all of boxing."

Ken Hissner, over at Doghouse Boxing News, just posted a great profile and interview of Henry Hascup, AAIB Board member and boxing encyclopedia. Henry talks about the International Boxing Hall of Fame, small shows, his famous eulogies, and why he is the “Uncrowned King” of boxing information:

"I spent many years going through micro-films of several newspapers, writing down every fight I could find."
