CT Boxing Hall of Fame Induction Plaque:
When it comes to amateur boxing in Connecticut, the first name that comes to mind is Roland Roy. The Glastonbury native was the president of USA Boxing in Connecticut for nearly 20 years. He remains the president of USA Boxing Region I, which includes all of New England and metro New York. Roy is also the coordinator for the Junior Olympics in the Northeast Region. Roy has worked with the US Olympic committee for the past 16 years to further Olympic style boxing. An original board member for the Connecticut Boxing Hall of Fame, Roy has been heavily involved in the yearly CBHOF selection of the Amateur Fighter of the Year. Roy’s efforts are among the reasons that amateur boxing is alive and well in Connecticut. Whether it’s an amateur card in Enfield or Norwalk, Roy will likely be there. He’s never been a stay-at-home type of president.
