Vitali Klitschko and Jim Gray highlighted Sunday’s induction ceremony for the International Boxing Hall of Fame’s 2018 class.

“It’s not reality—it’s dream,” Klitschko said, per the Associated Press (via ESPN.com). “I never expected I will be in [the Hall of Fame]. I didn’t expect one day I become world champion in the United States. I’m very proud to be together with boxing legends. It’s a dream to be in with Muhammad Ali.”

Former boxers Erik Morales, Ronald “Winky” Wright and Sid Terris were also inducted along with broadcaster Steve Albert, German promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl, ring announcer Johnny Addie and promoter Lorraine Chargin. Terris, Addie and Chargin were honored posthumously.
