Golden Gloves boxing at Hollywood Legion Stadium
Feb. 7, 1946: The Times Golden Gloves boxing tournament at the Hollywood Legion Stadium holds a standing room only crowd.
Fights at Hollywood Legion Stadium ended in 1960. The building was converted into a bowling alley named at Hollywood Legion Lanes.
In 1985, the building again changed, becoming a fitness club that is still open today.
