LAS VEGAS (AP) — Mike Tyson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Oscar De La Hoya, Larry Holmes and Julio Cesar Chavez head the inaugural class of the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame.

Promoters Bob Arum and Don King and referee Mills Lane were among the other total of 18 inductees announced at a news conference Wednesday in North Las Vegas.

Mike McCallum and Diego Corrales round out the field of seven boxers along with two trainers, Eddie Futch and Freddie Roach.

Broadcaster Al Bernstein and long-time Las Vegas Review-Journal writer Royce Feour join the first class, with former Nevada Athletic Commission executive director Marc Ratner and longtime commissioner James Nave.

Former commissioner Sig Rogich and billionaire investor Kirk Kerkorian of MGM fame enter as special contributors.

An induction ceremony and dinner is planned sometime next year.
