Re: Should Danny Lopez be in the Hall of Fame?
Sure he belongs there. Even if the Hall were to tighten up their rather forgiving criteria for entry, he'd still make the grade. He was champ for nearly four years and was a fixture in the division for a good amount of time.
McGuigan, for example? No. People were/are so in love with what he represented outisde the ring, and were so enamored of his plucky Irish ways that what he actually accomplished in the ring was almost an afterthought.
