With all due respect to Gatti, I can make an argument for any of the guys I mentioned if Gatti Made it to the IBHOF

Julian Jackson-

Won and defended titles in two weight classes. Has concussive KO victories over outstanding fighters in Norris and Graham. Is considered by a good number of people to be the single hardest puncher, lb4lb, in the history of the sport.

This blows away anything Gatti accomplished, aside from getting into incredibly exciting wars with guys who would be crushed by the upper echelon of fighters.

There can be a case made for pretty much all of them to be in the HOF.

Clearly more deserving?

I think most are certainly even with him, apart from some like Williams, Pavlik, Dorsey, Mercer, and many are more deserving purely in boxing terms. The bolded guys had greater careers and beat better guys. Many of the others are greater too, but I'm tired and can't be bothered thinking too much about it.
