It's a shame.

No disrespect to the writers, promoters and announcers, because they do their job, but I think they're inducting too much of them. I mean, only half of the inductees this year are fighters. I think it's been like that for the past few years, as well.

Its about time Lopez got in. To many names not nearly as deserving got in before him and that is a shame.

He was a better fighter and had a better career than Barry McGuigan. It is about time Cosell got in as well. He covered the sport on a major league level that hasn't been see since he quit doing boxing after the Holmes-Cobb fight.

It is also a crime that it took Chang so long to get in. Arguably the greatest 108 pounder of all time

Marshall getting in is awesome. I have no beef with the three moderns who went in. Best induction class in a while IMO.

There is still time. Little Red went YEARS without getting in. But I understand what you mean.

That might be why he's not in yet. He said bad things about boxing with his statements after that fight. Even calling it "barbaric".

HE got voted in today. Well deserved, as he did more for the sport than any other sportscaster in the history of the sport. I understood his bitterness as he witnessed a savage beating and he was hurt behind it

Glad they made it in.

Idea! Boxingscene should have it's own Hall of fame! It could be a subforum of the classic section(Please don't put it in Nonstopboxing)
