Default which person's should be removed from the HOF?

I find that rodent, Jose Sulaiman is in there after all the devious and corrupt things he's done to boxing a bit of disgrace. I wouldnt mind seeing if someone could detail all the ****ty manouvers he's pulled (if we had the space of course)

Whilst Don King is also a bit of a scumbag, he has managed to make some tremendous cards.


anyone else?

Rocky Marciano should be booted out of the hall of fame. Thats pretty easy.

Once someone is enshrined in as an immortal in their sport it is there to stay. Just my humble opinion. If John Wayne Gacy had been a hall of fame boxer before he was convicted of all those murders then even he should stay in. Being great in a sport and what kind of person you are are multually exclusive.
thus the reason i used the word "person" in my title as i was really trying to angle it towards somebody like Sulaiman, who seems to only harm the sport

I would have booted Sulaiman out. This guy did more HARM than good for the sport. The bribe charge, and his alpha title, and who pays more to be the "Champ". That ant right. Wonder if he bribe some one to get in the hall?

Then they don't know what in hell they're talking about. 49 straight wins, no losses, against fighters of the calibre of Louis, Walcott, Charles, and Moore? If that's not HOF material I don't know what it.

Maybe they can induct Frankie Carbo next.
