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.
Agree with statement. Although Gatti entertained in many fights was he an all time great? Always thought Virgil Hill was underrated (probably due to freezing against Hearns). One omission for me would 2 weight Champ @ Bantam & Feather Harry Jeffra. he's been on the ballot long time.

Regards Gatti, he won WBC Light Welter & IBF Super Feather titles & I think an IBA title @ 147 but not WBC.
Cheers, I fluffed that a bit, changed now :good
