Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- One of North Dakota's greatest all-time athletes made a stop in Fargo today.
Virgil "Quicksilver" Hill was on AM-970 with Jay Thomas. Hill's here for tomorrow's
Winter Brawl boxing event at the Fairgrounds in West Fargo. The bout includes former Minnesota Viking defensive end Ray Edwards. Hill, who won 5 World Titles in his career and has a 50-and-7 record, will be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in June.
Hill says, "i'm very excited. I was a first time ballot selection who got in. Whenever you have people appreciate what you've done in your career, it's always a great honor. People generally look at if you've been successful, outside of the money you have in the bank, but I'm very honored that the sportswriters thought I should be in there."
Hill says he's looking to fight one final time, and do it in North Dakota.
