Yeah I agree with this post. Two of the most popular heavyweights of all time (Ali and Tyson) also don't get their just due because of their religion! PRICKZ!!11

ATG or not, Hatton will go down as one the most popular fighters in the history of the sport and having the most loyal fan base

It's called the HOF, not the hall of talent. Anyone who doesn't think he should be in is retarded.

The HOF really made a mockery of itself inducting people like Jose Suliaman , Sylvester Stallone & Joe Cortez Neither have ever laced up the gloves shoved in a mouthpiece & gone to war. The HOF should be for respected fighters not for $$$$$$$ hungry promoters & B movie actors
Yes Ricky should be in there

For the fanbase yeah, his fights were huge events.

People saying he shouldn't go in because of his record should look at Sylvester Stallone's record a bit more closely.

I thought Ricky Hatton brought great entertainment to boxing,in and out of the ring.He was honest and had the courage to take the big fights and only failed twice at the truly highest level.His comeback loss is irrelevant.He deserves respect imo.

It don't take much to get in the HOF. Win a belt or 2 and be popular. Thats it basically. Hatton was never great. But No doubt he'll go into the HOF. I don't mind that.

I think he just misses out to be honest. He really hasn't done enough to warrant a spot in the Hall.

Stallone went in as a contributor, a non-participant who add to the sport. I challenge you to find another non-participant who has brought as much attention to boxing.

The NFL inducted the founders of NFL Films for a similar reason. The MLB has a host of broadcasters.

There's more than one way to contribute to a sport.

To me, Ricky falls into the Arturo Gatti category: tremendous fan following without extraordinary skill or resume. Boxing is built on the popularity of such fighters and those who take the "Fame" part seriously will include them.

Once Joe Cal gets in the entire thing will be a joke anyway, though.

Stallone was inducted as a 'non-participant'.
