CANASTOTA, N.Y. (AP) - Oscar De La Hoya, Felix Trinidad and Joe Calzaghe head the class of 2014 to be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

Also to be enshrined are George Chaney, Charles Ledoux and Mike O'Dowd in the old-timer category, while Tom Allen is the lone honoree in the pioneer category.

The 25th class includes promoter Barry Hearn, referee Richard Steele, journalist Graham Houston and photographer Neil Leifer in the non-participant and observer categories.

De La Hoya won 10 titles in six weight classes and an Olympic gold medal in his career, while Trinidad was a three-time world champion and Calzaghe retired unbeaten in 46 professional bouts.

Inductees were selected by the Boxing Writers Association and a panel of international boxing historians. Induction ceremonies will be held June 8 at the International Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota, N.Y.
