Pretty poor year for HOF inducees this year. Nearly as many observers as boxers and although I love Gatti, he opens the door for the IBHOF to be swamped with B-level boxers from now on.

No probs with Hill or Yuh though but they haven't got that star power that has attracted people the last few years. Could think of a fair few boxers more deserving than the five guys going in this year.
Yeah true. Though there's an argument to be made over what criteria they should use to get in the HOF. Whether it should be the top fighters or people who brought a lot to the sport, if you know what I'm saying.

Either way CHB's HOF is gonna be the future GOAT.
Yeah I can understand the Gatti argument, the guy was in great fights and di bring a lot to boxing but every year from now on is going to see some huge arguments and it's going to end with people saying "well, if Gatti is in" and there will be no way to argue back. Forrest, Corrales, Mayorga are going to have to be certs. They won't put Naz in and he was in just as exciting fights and brought a whole lot more to boxing than Gatti did so there is an element of bias there.
Jeff Smith and Wesley Ramey also got in. I'm happy for those two even though there both dead because they literally get no recognition whatsoever.
