Re: Greatest Boxers Not in the Hall-of-Fame?
Flea, do you really feel that strongly about Marcel? I agree he should be in by now, on the basis of his credentials, but don't think he's the slam dun shoe-in Hill is.
Hill had about a zillion combined title defenses light heavy and cruiser with wins over some really outstanding fighters. Plus he was still competing at a world class level when he was pretty much a mummy.
Do you just think that deserving fighters should be inducted on a chronological basis, or do you just think Marcel is clearly that much superior to Hill?
I thought Brian Mitchell's induction was way, way overdue, but I never thought Ricardo Lopez shouldn't be inducted until Mitchell was in, because Lopez was obviously deserving in his own right.
