ANNUAL AWARDS of BOXING BC: By Brian Zelley
*For many years, two special awards presented by Boxing BC
on an annual basis are the Jimmy Symes award which is
now presented to a junior boxer and the Harold Mann award
which is presented to a non-competitor such as a coach,
official or other volunteer.
During the long history of organized amateur boxing
from 1939 to 2012, there have been other special awards
that have been presented such as the Billy Townsend award,
and the Bert Lowes award. Some others of interest include
the Fred Fuller award and for Boxing Canada the
Ron Whalley award for officials.
For 2011 and 2012, there has been no major publicity about
the Symes and Mann awards in British Columbia.
