    We all know the boxing hall of fame class if on the liberal side. Taking out the old timer category and the non-participant types, what grade would you give the following Boxing hall of fame classes from 2010-current?

    As a footnote the fighters are listed by who got the most votes in each year.

    My early thoughts are 2011 was the best recent class with 2013 being the weakest. I'll assign my grades later.

    2011 was the best. Boxing hall of fame seems easy to gain entry to. On merit Gatti shouldn’t make it but man he was sooo exciting. His fights often transcended the sport. I can see why they put him in.

    2011 is obviously the strongest on that list.

    I mean, Tszyu was kinda the odd man out because he wasn't in the same class as Chavez and Tyson, but he still very HOF worthy.

    2014 and 2017 were very strong too.

    Damn... 2013 was pathetic. Gatti is the biggest joke to ever hit the HOF, and I don't think Virgil Hill was HOF worthy.

    I really feel like Mel Taylor got robbed blind this year. How did his SON get in over him?

    Every fighter in the HOF was better than Gatti by a wide margin. The guy was a scrub.

    Ray Mancini should not be in either. No way.

    Mark "Too Sharp" Johnson I think is a of a reach.

    2011 for sure has the strongest names out of all the years listed. Many would disagree but I think Tszyu was a nice addition to the IBHOF.

    2007 was probably the BEST class IMO. Roberto Duran, Pernell Whitaker, and Ricardo Lopez.

    Well 1990 was by far and away the best class, but lots of guys were inducted on that year. Agreed on 2007, a very good class.

    2011, 14 and 17 are particularly strong. Guys like Gatti, Mancini and Mcgirt are questionable additions to the hall but I do respect them as fighters and acknowledge that they are great just not quite on the hall of fame level.

    2014, 2017, and 2018 also had some nice names as well. All were legit HOF worthy names.

    Gatti had a worthy HOF career. And he was no scrub.

    Mancini doesn't belong either, BUT, Ray was a whole better than Gatti. But yes, Mancini is one of the lower level fighters to make the Hall.

    I don't have a problem with Too Sharp getting in. One of the best flyweights I've ever seen.
