Default Will one or both the Klitschko brothers be inducted into Boxing Hall of Fame (IBHOF)?

Will they or not??

I think they will. I also think they deserve it. But on the other hand. I dont know.

Wlad absolutely will, Vitali I'm more on the fence about because of how he basically missed his prime.

well they are dominating their division for a couple of years and probably will for at least next 2-3. they are few classes above competition. if that isn't enough to earn one (two:P) induction into HoF then what is? HoF doesn't necessarily equal atg list or sth it's more like giving an honour for doing sth significant...

plus they are first brothers to unify division I believ:P

They have not 'unified' the division.

You can't unify the division as a 'team', when it is a one-on-one sport.

I agree with the rest of what you said though.

Both will get in, but only Wlad actually deserves to.

You're kidding.

Vitali:

--highest KO% in HW history

--never trailed on the scorecards of any fight

--never been knocked out or knocked down

--came back after 3+ years off due to injury to regain his title

--hasn't lost a round in his comeback


Them's HOF credentials, sorry. Far lesser people are in the HOF.

right, maybe 'unify' is not the best word here. Still what I meant is that this is the first time in history when brothers have all serious belts in one division. If Stallone deserved it then 'family-unification' (or something but this name quite fits) qualifies as well;P

They both will. And Wlad will unify once Vitali retires, thus securing his place in stone above his brother.
