Diliberto Goes Down in Boxing History
Jun 27, 2006, 9:46 AM

On Aug. 11, 2006, Danny Diliberto, famed professional pool player, will be inducted into the hall of fame for his other love: boxing. Under the training of the great Angelo Dundee, Diliberto's career consisted of 14 wins, one draw, and no losses.

The organization recognizing Diliberto is called the New York Boxing Association, and will be inducting him into the Buffalo Boxing Hall of Fame. "This Hall of Fame is intended to honor the many western New York boxing legends," said Jack Green, president of the New York Boxing Association and chairman of the selection committee. Former inductees include Monsignor Fanklin Kelliher, honored for vital role of boxing in the physical fitness program at his home for troubled boys, and George "Big Boy" Brackey, a heavyweight fighter who was active from 1934-1946.
