Boxing Announcer Al Bernstein called his impending induction into the Illinois Boxing Hall of Fame “very special to me.” Bernstein will be inducted at the organization’s Fourth Annual Induction dinner on Friday April 12 in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.

Bernstein explained why this honor is so important to him. He said: “I grew up in Chicago and lived there more than half of my life. There is something undeniably important in getting recognition in your home area. When I was boxing in park district gyms as a teenager I could scarcely have imagined this kind of honor. I have been privileged to travel the world chronicling boxing on television for 38 years. I will always be able to trace my love of boxing and my development as a journalist back to my days in Chicago. Going into the Illinois HOF means a lot to me.”

Bernstein was the voice of boxing on ESPN from 1980 to 2004. For the last 14 years he has been the analyst on the Showtime Championship Boxing series. Al is an inductee in a number of Hall of Fames including the International Boxing Hall of Fame. Tickets will not be available at the door. To buy tickets, call 798-473-0682.
