it's all a matter of who is on each ballot each year. if there are weak years these guys will get in. if they dont have classes that they can beat out for top spots then they will sit on the ballot.

hatton, for instance, will undoubtedly make the hall of fame on the strength of his popularity and following (he was also at or around the top at 140 for a long time, and only lost to the planet's two best fighters, but i wouldnt vote for the guy.) he just needs a weak year and guys will vote for him

I highlighted Urkal instead of Mitchell because I had a Tszyu fan on NSB tell me how great Oktay Urkal win was for Tszyu, just to make a point. The Mitchell was good for Tszyu though.

agreed.

we cant forget to ask ourselves :

who is the better f*ckin fighter?


looking at his fights (and not the names or their impact, but the fights,) how good is this guy?
how great is this guy?


that's the other half

one half of it you can read about in the records and the history books and the newspapers
the other half you do with your eyes.


who is the better truckin fighter?
