The Legend of Shelby
The Champions Park Committee is dedicated to preserving the legacy of Shelby’s
proud and colorful history and promoting tourism in North Central Montana by
developing an outdoor interpretive park to commemorate the world famous
Dempsey-Gibbons World Heavyweight Championship Fight of 1923.
Interpretive displays documenting the events which shaped our dynamic community
need a permanent home at Champions Park in order to voice the story of the
legendary fight. Interpretive kiosks on homesteading, the arrival of the
railroad, the discovery of oil and the events surrounding the fight are
available for sponsorship.
Your contribution will make this park a reality!
