    I can tell you with absolute honesty i didn't look at anyone elses list, unlike the Bantams. The odds of it matching yours would have been huge.

    Only adding Oba and Villa as I feel if they don't get added now they won't get in, and I believe everybody who dies as champ deserves to be inducted.

    Watching wee Benny dancing about like a flea and throwing that left hook to head and body.......WoW
    Jimmy Wilde in his pomp would be giving at least 7lbs away to the other lads, but what a fighter.
