In 1977, George Randazzo founded the Italian American Boxing Hall of Fame as a way to raise money for a struggling local Catholic youth program. Randazzo collected boxing photos and memorabilia, a hobby that inspired him to organize a fundraising dinner that brought together a list of boxing greats and celebrities. The dinner honored 23 former Italian American boxing world champions, including Rocky Graziano, Jake LaMotta, Sammy Angott, Willie Pep, and posthumously Rocky Marciano, Primo Carnera and Tony Canzoneri. The results were so overwhelming that a friend and local businessman, Don Ponte, encouraged Randazzo to start a Hall of Fame to honor all Italian American athletes. This wonderful green-and-red printed poster is from that historic 1977 event. There are nearly 20 autographs on the 12-by-18-inch Ex-Mt condition poster, including LaMotta, Pep, Angott, Carmen Basilio and others. At several points there are inscriptions and personalizations to Angelo Dundee. Truly a very unique and important piece of boxing memorabilia.

LOA from the Dundee Family.
