On Thursday, Feb. 19, inside of the Roy Jonees Jr. Fight Academy (3874 Silvestri Lane, Las Vegas, Nev. 89120), the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame (NVBHOF) will announce its Class of 2015 inductees.

Rich Marotta, founder and CEO of the NVBHOF, and several of the inductees will be on hand to conduct interviews before and after the 1 PM presser.

We’ve learned that former WBA light heavyweight champion Eddie Mustafa Muhammad, of the “15 Rounds” era, will be inducted, as well as former two-division world champion Roger Mayweather.

Both Muhammad and Mayweather are very sought after trainers and can be found inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club throughout the year mentoring their next wave of pupils.

It was Muhammad himself who informed HustleBoss.com of the news. Please check below for the full interview, plus Eddie’s reveal of who else is being inducted.
