As a youngster, Peter Howes got hooked on boxing with his first match held at the old Central Marin Boys Club. Decades later, the Marin native still loves boxing...as a business.

A fight promoter with Howes Entertainment LLC, the San Francisco resident staged two prizefights in Marin last year. They were part of the 1998 World Boxing Federation's 40 championship bouts, held in 23 states and 17 countries.

As a result of Howes’ efforts outside of the ring, the Redwood High School grad
was named World Boxing Federation (WBF) Fight Promoter of the Year.

The honor will be presented in London this June at a special ceremony during the annual WBF meeting. In May, Howes is organizing a welterweight title bout at the Marin Center Exhibit Hall.
