Peter Timothy
Foxwoods Resort Casino helped keep boxing alive when it first opened in 1992, and Peter Timothy was a big reason why. Timothy was the Commissioner of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation from 1995 to 2009. The late John Burns, who was a founder and inductee of the CBHOF, mentored him. During his tenure at Foxwoods, Timothy regulated hundreds of fights and more than 90 title bouts. Two of the biggest fights at Foxwoods during his tenure was John Ruiz vs Evander Holyfield for the Heavyweight Title and James Toney vs Vasily Jurov for the Cruiserweight Championship. Other big names who ventured into Connecticut to fight at Foxwoods while Timothy was commissioner include Roy Jones Jr., Diego Corrales, Shane Mosley, Acelino Freitas, Dana Rosenblatt, Peter Manfredo and Lawrence Clay-Bey.
