    Pedroza getting so many votes has got me puzzled. I'm not sure he would end up in my top 5 out of these guys. Like he has more votes than Attell, does the forum rank Pedroza higher than Attell at feather?

    I'll vote for

    Pete Herman
    Abe Attell.

    It hurt not to vote for Chang but he doesn't deserve it more than those two.

    I agree that it is bizarre that Pedroza has so many votes, but he is or has been a forum favourite.

    I for one do think Pedroza was a better fighter, from what I can see..... my personal criteria values how good the guy really was.
    I think it has more to do with Attell being from such a long time ago though, it was such a different time.... Didn't Attell win one title fight because the police stopped it ? Wasn't he deeply involved with mobsters ?

    Anyway, he is making it, surely, he got a lot of votes.

    Herman and Rose. I was going to vote for Attell but outright motherf*cking refuse to see Rose with only one vote to his name.

    I voted Attell and Pedroza.

    Really it was Attell and one other. Attell is my #4 at FW. If he doesn't get inducted, then I will assume (**boxing history snob statement warning**) it will have been because not enough posters voting are familiar with the length and volume of defenses of his world title reign, or won't vote for fighters they've seen no film of.

    Pedroza is WAY behind Attell at FW (the top 6 of Pep, Saddler, Saldivar, Attell, Sanchez and Dixon are way ahead), but still high at #7 for me. Rose is my #7 at BW and I may as well tossed a coin between him, Pedroza and Chang (Herman has an argument too, but lost far too many in and around his prime years for my liking). Pedroza just edged it for me, but I'd be equally as happy if Chang or Rose get it.

    It really is Attell and one other, imo.
