Default Re: Currently active fighters that belong in the HOF

Believe it or not, if all fighters retired today and never fought again, Robert Guerrero does have one of the better records among actives, specifically those his age (only 31).

He has a depth of good victories. I mean, these are all guys everyone knows well all the way down the line and all of his victories were solid one sided displays with only a few exceptions...
14- ????? Yoshihiro Kamegai - @ 147
13- L UD12 Floyd Mayweather Jr. - @ 147
12- W UD12 Andre Berto - @ 147
12- W UD12 Selcuk Aydin - @ 147
11- W UD12 Michael Katsidis - @ 135
10- W UD10 Vicente Escobedo - @ 135
10- W UD10 Joel Casamayor - @ 138 catchweight if memory serves
09- W UD12 Malcolm Klassen - for Klassen's IBF 130
08- W KO8 Jason Litzau - IBF 126 defense
07- W TKO1 Martin Honorio - IBF 126 defense
07- W TKO9 Spend Abazi - for vacant 126 IBF title
06- ND12 Orlando Salido - original defeat for Guerrero, IBF vacated when Salido fails drug test
06- W RTD8 Eric Aiken - for Aiken's 126 IBF title
06- W KO6 Gamaliel Diaz II - @ 126
05- L SD12 Gamaliel Diaz I - @ 126
...I don't know. It just doesn't seem like he deserves quite all the hate he gets and ends up getting underrated. That is a respectable resume. Not HOF worthy by any means, though.

Erik Morales announced on June 5th that he is retiring. No more fighting for hopes or plans of a "farewell fight." It is official.

Evander Holyfield hasn't fought since May of 2011. He is 52 years old. Safe to take him off the list now.

Good thread, by the way.

An interesting debate to be had.

Thething about retirement while at least for me is that I need for the person announcing the retirement to stay out for a year before I take them at their word.

Shane Mosley and Glen Johnson are prime examples of this. Remember the promise Bernard Hopkins made to him mother to stop.

Roy Jones - tentative (PED allegation)
Bernard Hopkins

Thank you.....Im thinking about Glen Johnson and keep in mind that Arturo GAtti got into the HOF not because of his boxing skill, but his "style".

I'm thinking whether or not Jhonny Gonzalez belongs on that list. Hes vastly underrated and he did beat some good fighters, despite losing badly in other fights.
