Felix “Tito” Trinidad To Attend Nevada Boxing HOF’s Annual Indiction Weekend

Felix “Tito” Trinidad, an International Boxing Hall of Fame member beloved by fans for his sunny demeanor outside the ring and his devastating knockouts inside of it, announced he will attend the third annual Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame induction weekend.

The event will be held Friday, Aug. 7 and Saturday, Aug. 8. The induction ceremony itself will be at Caesars Palace, where Trinidad scored several notable wins, on Aug. 8.

Trinidad, 42, was 42-3 with 35 knockouts in a career which saw him win world titles at welterweight, super welterweight and middleweight. He was 8-1 in nine fights in Nevada, including 2-0 in bouts at Caesars Palace.

Trinidad won the most significant matches of his career in Nevada. In a battle of undefeated welterweight champions, Trinidad bested Oscar De La Hoya on Sept. 18, 1999, in a bout dubbed, “The Fight of the Millennium.”

His most exciting Nevada win was a brawl with Fernando Vargas, which he won by 12th stoppage. He knocked Vargas down five times, but Vargas knocked Trinidad down in the fourth in an amazing back-and-forth slugfest.

He also moved up to super welterweight and defeated 1996 Olympic gold medalist and defending WBA world champion David Reid outdoors at Caesars Palace on March 3, 2000.

Trinidad, who is one of 21 persons being inducted, was chosen in the non-Nevada boxer class. He said he was thrilled to learn the news he’d been elected and is looking forward to induction weekend.

“I feel very proud of being inducted into the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame,” Trinidad said. “I am honored to be considered in the Class of 2015. I worked very hard in order to please my fans and this was a consequence. I want to thank the people of the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame for considering me to be part of their induction. Thank you very much to all of them.”

Remaining tickets for the Aug. 8 induction ceremony are $300, $175 and $75 and are fully tax deductible as the NVBHOF is an IRS 501 (c)3 charity. They can be purchased online at the Hall’s website, nvbhof.com.

The Hall was founded by noted boxing broadcaster Rich Marotta. Its chief operating officer is Michelle Corrales-Lewis, whose late husband, Diego Corrales, was an inaugural inductee into the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame.
