I know i might be in the minority but watching Calzaghe fight is not a memorable or pleasurable experience ..

(obviously though he will be in the HOF, and i suppose deservedly so but i would rather watch Butterbean ply his trade)
Tha's you're problem...Calzaghe won all his fights..he did it his way..as time goes on I have more and more respect for he guy. Damn all you haters.

I say if they have fame let em in. It does not mean they are or not great. So I say let the likes of Butterbean, Two Ton Toney and a few others in.


If it was the hall of greatness, than thats something else.

it should be the Hall of Greatness and for the most part it is. Average fighters do not make it in. Is Ray Mancini in the Hall of Fame yet? Wondering if he made it in since he has been retired for years. Hearns made it in his first year of eligibility. And he is well deserved.

Tough to say.......
I donīt think Willard should be in.....but itīs the Hall of Fame. So in that aspect is reasonable to add Willard in there.....

Johannsson is in, I think, and that baffles me, even more than Kenny Norton being there. And Little Red Lopez was my childhood favorite, but he doesn't belong there, but if McGuigan is in, why not Little Red?

we know the guys who will make it in easily in the next 10 years. Delahoya,Mosley,Tito,Hopkins,Mayweather etc.. Like Hearns those are no brainers for the Hall of Fame. A guy like Donald Curry or Virgil Hill should probably get in, and Virgil absolutely should, but his boring style does hurt him, and Curry lost in his prime to Honeyghan and McCallum which really hurt his legacy. it is really hard to say what is a fighter who deserves to be in there, but I think mostly they get it right.
