Tszyu was inducted last year on his first ballot. The HOF has nothing to do with someones level of fame, otherwise a New York Middleweight named Tony Danza would be in there.
Gatti was involved in great fights, but he was far from a great fighter. Still, it's not like the IBHOF haven't slipped up before... Barry McGuigan, Ingo Johannson etc.
