Michalczewski? I don't think so.

I'd go with Hearns, Marcel and Lora.

Zapata, Vazquez, Kingpetch and Serrano could all fill the 2 places after Hearns though, who's the only lock on top 3 IMO.

Thomas Hearns
Ernesto Marcel
Hilario Zapata

Hard leaving out Lora, Cocoa Kid, Curry, and a few others. I hope some of the lighter weight standouts on there eventually get in.

I'll repeat it every year until they're in:

Donald Curry and Joey Archer are overdue.

Besides the Hitman, I don't care who people think ought to be 1st ballot. Tough titties. They can wait.

It's a shame most people know Joey only as the last guy Robinson faced and lost to. Similar to Berbick with Muhammad Ali and Kevin McBride with Mike Tyson. Too many are unaware that Archer was a fantastic middleweight technician with a nice resume. He would've been a tough assignment for a slew of better known middleweights, probably causing some upsets here and there.

Yet watch how many people in this thread are going to skip right over his name, blissfully ignorant and drawn right to the one they recognize before blurting out "PRINCE NAZ, DEFFO!"

Hamed - if he belongs in the HOF at all - certainly doesn't need to be there in one of his first few years of eligibility, at the expense of more deserving past greats who've been in queue for a long time now.

There's a lot of good fighters on this ballot and I think that's why Johnson, Curry and Naz will have to wait.

Hearns is a certainty. Zapata, Cocoa Kid, Jeffra, Farr, Marcel and Lora all have a shout
