That's funny -- because he won't be on the ballot until the ballots are sent out toward the end of 2010. If he gets in the top three of voting totals (which he will), then he'll be inducted in 2011.

Eventhough this is a repeat thread

This is a no brainer, Mike did so much for the sport of boxing and for 15 years at least he was the biggest name in boxing, even while behind bars.

Props to Iron.

Tyson deserves it. THough most people wont say he is the greatest heavyweight who ever lived. He did create something when he was in his prime. He was the talk of the town and created excitement and didnt let people see beyond the first round most of the time.

My thoughts exactly...Page Six is tabloid junk so it's not surprising they'd muff this. Mike was probably informed he'll be on the ballot. I would assume he and Chavez go in easily this year. Tszyu, also first year eligible, is likely to get a nod as well.
