Australian National Boxing Hall of Fame was founded in 2001 and began inducting boxers into the Hall of Fame in 2003. Since then annual induction dinners have been held across Australia.

Inductees are nominated and then voted upon by a panel of boxing experts and historians across Australia.

Current committee members are:

President - Brett McCormick. Vice President - Angie McCormick. Treasurer & Founder - David Hanvey. Secretary - Damian Membrey. Historian & Life Member - Peter Banks.

The Hall of Fame has now introduced an ANBHOF Fighter of the year and also the Gus Mercurio Memorial Award for services to boxing for those who are not Inducted into the Australian National Boxing Hall of Fame.
