Lucia "Dutch Destroyer" Rijker will be honored. Lucia appeared with Clint Eastwood and Hilary Swank in the Academy Award-winning film Million Dollar Baby. Layla and Lucia are also listed in the top ten by Ring Magazine.

Gwen Adair, who opened the doors for women in the world of boxing, was professional boxing’s only female referee and the first woman to referee a world title fight. Her only interest was in following her heart “I love boxing” and never set out to be a pioneer. Our salute to Gwen for her amazing and ongoing career. Golden State Boxers Association is very proud to honor along Gwen with our other great female icons of boxing.
