There's plenty of boxer who deserve to be in the hof that aren't, Kid is just one of many.

He's one of the more deserving though if you ask me.

I'm never going to understand that one. Gatti I could understand, but McGuigan? Come on! He didn't have one fight as good as any of Gatti's numerous all time great wars. Steve Cruz fight was good, but doesn't compare to Gatti's stuff.

Just of the top of my head Wilfredo Vazquez Sr, Eddie Booker, Cocoa Kid, Naseem Hamed and Pone Kingpetch are probably the most deserving not too be in yet.

Can see myself getting slated in a second for forgetting a obvious name.

Gatti may not deserve it either but he was Thrill a minute and will never ever be forgotten, certainly not by those who saw him. Barry? Meh
