So funny the way Jeff Lacy was built up to beat Joe and he got humiliated. No one could beat Joe. He'd still be undefeated now if he was fighting. An incredible achievement and one that automatically qualifies a fighter as an ATG. I think pretty much everyone I've met who's in boxing and who knows about boxing acknowledges this.

I'm a fan of him, but HOF possibly, he should be in my eyes but there are some questions.

As for ATG, no.

This is due to waitor liquor making me realise that ATG and HOF is not easy to get into.
