Training a past it Hoya doesn't get one into the Hall these days, does it?

Gatti must have made it mostly on the strength of his classic encounters with Ward. I would say Ward will make the Hall right after his wife is inducted.

Oscar worked with several great trainers so his opinions hold some weight.

Chad Dawson was at his best when working with Sr. And currently Chris Eubank Jr crosses the Atlantic to get some work in with him.

His boxing story isn't over yet.

There would be quite a few people they would have to remove. Wouldn't be a hall anymore but a closet.
