Former welterweight champion Carlos Palomino couldn't hide his emotions Sunday as he was enshrined in the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

Palomino was overcome several times, his voice often cut off as he gave thanks to his parents and family for helping him become a boxing champion as more than 2,000 boxing fans looked on.

The former welterweight champion -- who became equally famous in a Miller Lite beer commercial -- was among seven living boxers and ring personalities inducted Sunday. Another eight were enshrined posthumously.

The 2004 induction class included featherweight Azumah Nelson of Ghana, light heavyweight Dwight Muhammad Qawi of the United States, and bantamweight Daniel Zaragoza of Mexico. Also enshrined were promoter J. Russell Peltz and South African referee Stanley Christodoulou.
