Default Is Arturo Gatti a HOF?

Another tragic death hit the world of boxing. He was one of the most exciting fighters in the history of boxing. Severely flawed, he made the most out of his heart, guts and punching power. Did he do enough to make the IBHOF?

He might get in based solely on the fact that fans loved him so much. Achievement wise tho, he shouldn't be there.

I think any fighter who has had 4 "fight of the years" and many wars as he did...should and most likely will . I hope so.

I voted yes and only read afterwards that he died.
It's the hall of FAME.
If you make a thread and ask about the most exciting fighter in the last 20 years most people will say either Gatti or Tyson.
Gatti has also given us multiple fights of the year.
I'm sure that 50 years from now people will still know who Gatti was. That's fame.

PS: Most people will remember Gatti for his chin and heart, and lack of defense. But he laso threw awesome combinations, and used his whole body for punches. It's something you rarely see tbh.

IBHOF is about popularity not skill: Any fighter with a reasonably sized fan base gets in.

I always value your opinion poet. Who was the better and more popular fighter. Mancini or Gatti? Who gets in first? I always thought Mancini was a huge fan favorite with limited skill

I'd say Gatti.....Mancini was quite popular while active but kind of forgotten after he retired. Gatti STILL gets talked about well after his last great fight.
