Default Re: Colin Hart in the hall of fame

I think Hill is a fair inclusion, he's just not a particularly big name compared to other leading Americans from that time.

Gatti... meh.

Not for me I'm afraid. He was a very average fighter, with no particularly notable wins.

Pretty exciting, but so was Jamie Moore, so was Nigel Benn.

In recent years, there's been stacks of more exciting fighters to watch than Gatti. Both Marquez brothers, Barrera, Morales, Pacquiao - and that's just from bantamweight to lightweight.

All of those will probably get in anyway, but it's just a general point I'm making, that Gatti is overrated in all departments.
