The Boxing Writers Association of America announced the remainder of 2014 winners today.
Here are a few highlights of the remaining BWAA awards that were announced today. All award winners will be honored at what will be the 90th annual BWAA dinner on April 24th, in New York.
“Words cannot express how much winning an award with Eddie Futch’s name on it means to me,” said Roach, who was trained by the Hall of Famer during his boxing career and was later his assistant. “I’d like to thank the BWAA for this honor. My name may be on the plaque, but I am just a representative of the collective hard work and dedication from the most talented and hardest-working fighters and assistant trainers in the world. It is a privilege to work with them.”
“He was an honorable, honest, good guy in a business where it’s not easy to have that kind of personality. There’s no one more deserving. There is so much going on with the game that he’d be so excited about. It’s just hard to talk about it. We all loved him so much,” said Tom Brown (Goossen’s brother-in-law).
