It would be great for Boxing for Gatti to be inducted into the HOF. What a true fighter/boxer and warrior of this sport!

Gatti left the sport with great memories,deserves it
Hate when people complain because he was not elite
It certainly wasn't but he was a great fighter with great heart
Bottom line....he was great for the sport!

you cant call someone crazy for saying he doesnt. personally i dont think he does, but im still happy hes inducted. there are fighters less deserving than him in there and there are ppl more deserving who arent in there, at the end of the day it is what it is.

I didn't vote for him and never would have. Not mad that he got in the though. He was Gatti; it's a lively debate on his credentials. I am ecstatic that Yuh got in. Long overdue and I did vote for him (the only one of three inducted Modern that I did).

if I could vote..Gatti would get my vote...he's HOF worthy!!...don't care about how many fights he lost or titles he won....dude fought his ass off...he defines how a warrior should behave in the ring....I can't explain it because words can't describe what "Thunder" brung to the table....real Rocky movie fights....real ones....with real punches, real blood, and real drama....he belongs in with the GREATS...noone can deny how GREAT he was for the sport...YES to Gatti!!!
