Default Choose 5 HOFers most undeserving of being at it

Suppose u were a member of a special committee assembled 4 noble cause of making it a more honorable place . Who were d 5 HOF members in d fighters' category that u want 2 remove d most ?


my picks R :
modern era :
1. Muhammad Ali
2. Aaron Pryor
3. Orlando Canizales
4. Ricardo Lopez
5. Sohla Saenghom

(dis)honorable mentions :

6. Terry Norris
7. Ken Norton
8. Bob Foster
9. Wilfredo Gomez
10. Eusebio Pedroza

11. Barry McGuigan

ancient era :
1. Max Schmelling
2. Ingemar Johannsson


Yes , I have read many complaints about Barry McGuigan not deserving it , and he is certainly not 1 of d most deserving of introduction , but i think that d 5 that i mentioned r clearly more undeserving of introduction .

It just makes me feel like I have to nitpick and form a list of undeserving guys and take away from their accomplishments...

and it shouldn't be inspired by me because I asked people to school me on why INGO is deserving, because I never followed him and wanted to know.

How is Ali not deserving no matter what you think of him it's the hall of FAME and Ali is the most famous boxer by FAR.

1.) Mcguigan
2.) Johansson
3.) Norton
4.) Eugene Chiriqui

I would also debate the merits of Dwight Qawi and Carlos Palomino though you can make a compelling argument for both. I'm sure I'll get shit for saying this.

if this is d criteria then your post and opinion may b legit , so there4 , Luis Resto definitely deserves n introduction as his name is still remembered among fans ans Panama Lewis should b inducted as a trainer 4 d same reasons . Other than these , your post is full of merit .

Now it is transparent 2 me Y were those who introduced picked 4 it rather than those whom were not .

Also , d IBHOF should b renamed 2 ESHOF , meaning HOF 4 d English Speaking countries .

because u just don't know how many participants were in Melchor Bob Castro's or Leo Gamez' or "3rd leg" Kalule's post fight open public gangbangs , do u ?

Yeah you're right Luis Resto and Panama Lewis are absolute household names amongst the general public,right up there with Ali.

A piss poor comparison from a piss poor excuse for a poster.

And if your going to troll put Ali number 3 on your list or something and then maybe your infantile attention seeking wont be so blatantly obvious to everyone.

Ken Norton , "Jersey Joe Walcott" , Harry Greb and Mike McCallum r not household names amongst d general public , but among fight fans i believe that Luis Resto's name is just "up there" with .

So d sense in your post is as null as usual .

They're all better known than Luis Resto is and they are actually famous for their ring achievments and battles as opposed to
Resto and Lewis and their little bit of lingering infamy for being low life, cheating scum.

So again your comparison is utter shit just like your list and this thread.

then replace Luis Resto's name with Aaron Pryor and replace Panama Lewis' name with Panama Lewis .

Why?

Pryor is already in the HOF anyway so why put him in again?

Face it you just made a complete **** of yourself with the Resto/Lewis-Ali, Hall Of Fame analogy.

Clearly not that uncommon an occurance for you though is it?
