The Hall of the Champs
This page is for the people who make Backyard Boxing become a reality. They risk life and limb for the sole purpose of entertaining the masses. There is no greater sacrifice. To view the fighters click one of the buttons of above (based on your Internet connection and how you want to view the fighters), then click on whichever veteran's picture to view more information about him. Note that some of these pages take long to load because of the pictures and sound*.

The Hall of the Damned
Most of the fighters are hailed as champs after fighting a great fight, but then there are those who disgrace and shame what backyard boxing is about. For them there is a special place reserved for them.
(Disclaimer: Generally, I'm opposed to for sound being on WebPages. I hate it when I'm browsing a site and all of sudden a have to hear some lame-ass MIDI that has nothing to do with the place I'm at. But I believe that sound can be used well as long as the viewer isn't bombarded with pointless music that has nothing to do with the site and they have no way of turning off the music because usually the play controls are buried where you can't find it. With that said, the only place the Steve's Backyard Boxing site has sound is when you click on a Bio and that person has a theme song. I thought it appropriate and it worked well with the theme each fighter has. If you don't like to hear the music, it clearly says "press ESC to stop the theme," so no whining about the music. Thank you for your time)
