One thing was for sure when Gatti was fighting - you were going to see a hell of a show. He wasn't going to give up, he wasn't going to prepare half heartedly. He went in believing he was going to win, and he trained to win. Gatti's fights with Micky Ward are cause enough to place him into the hall of fame. He wasn't a great boxer, but you really can't ask for more out of a fighter within the realm of what he can control (superior skills, reflexes, speed, none are things he could really control. You have it or you don't).
The HOF should be for great fighters, not for fighters who were in great fights. There have been plenty of fights as good as Ward-Gatti that weren't featured on HBO and therefore went unnoticed.

Make a tough guy HOF and put Gatti in first. But he has no business going in to the real HOF ahead of too many fighters here to list.
