This is the first year that I didn't bother to vote. Three per year are enshrined, and it's near-impossible to believe that it won't be Tyson, Chavez and Tszyu.
Tyson and Chavez are 100% locks, and I'd be shocked if they weren't both unanimous picks.
I still say there's a solid debate between Tszyu and Hamed, but the fact that so many voters view Tszyu as a first-ballot level HOD tells me that voting will be near-unanimous for him as well.
Really pointless to vote for any other candidate this year, all things considered so I sat this one out.

Hamed would have KOed JMM.
Its a myth that Hamed ducked him. JMM beat noone of any note in the 90s and turned down a carrear high payday to fight hamed.
MAB and Morales only wanted to fight Hamed when he had slowed down somewhat and was there for the takeing.
Hamed fought guys Morales/MAB/JMM would fight later and stopped them in quicker time. Hamed was on there level, anyone who denies this knows f#ck all about boxing.
Hamed beat 10 world titlists and made 16 defences at featherweight. He won every majour alphabelt there was, boxing politics prevented him from being the undisputed champ. He definately deserves it ahead of Tszyu.
No easy way out

While we're talking about clueless people, who the hell has Tyson beat? You don't rank a fighter's career by how hard you get when you watch him fight(at least I don't)- you look at his accomplishments, and his performances at the elite level.
Both Tyson and Hamed lost anytime they stepped up their opposition, against REAL HOF'ers
