"For the boxing enthusiast ,this is the place. A small town in upper New York State, Conestoga. Entering the hall of fame main building was a rush of boxing history with world Champion belts , ring robes , shorts , gloves worn by all of the greatest inductees from the past. Hundreds of exhibits and k..."nowledgeable staff. Then head over to the metal barn like structure ,which holds among many things the actual Madison square gardens ring. Which was donated after thousands of famous fights. In the same building is a large gift shop with signed gloves (authenticated) from hundreds of fighters some still active some retired some passed away.
