BOXING NEWS has won a host of accolades at the Boxing Writers of America Association awards.

The BWAA, the long running body held in high esteem, holds an annual writing awards, which this year drew a record number of submissions from media outlets and journalists. But coming out on top overall was Boxing News, the world’s oldest boxing magazine established in 1909 and still going strong, and its website.

In their announcement the BWAA said: “Boxing News and Boxing News Online, based in the United Kingdom, stormed the BWAA contest like the Beatles coming to America in 1964, totalling 27 points on two firsts, three seconds, a third and five honourable mentions. ESPN.com was next with 16 points.”
