CANASTOTA, N.Y. (AP) – Former heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko, four-division world champion Erik Morales, and light middleweight champion Ronald Wright have been elected to the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

Morales fought Manny Pacquiao three times, winning their first showdown but lost in their next two showdowns.

German promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl and broadcasters Steve Albert and Jim Gray also were elected as non-participants and observers.

Elected posthumously were Sid Terris in the old-timer category, and ring announcer Johnny Addie and promoter Lorraine Chargin in the non-participant category.

Voting was conducted by members of the Boxing Writers Association and a panel of international boxing historians.
