    Tarver ain't worthy.

    And Arce suspect too.

    Froch and Sergio are long time faves of mine, so this is pretty exemplary. The way they each threw their "2" just did it for me, personally

    Fuck Tarver, seems like an asshole. Plus he's been on more juice than a nursery school at snack time.

    Don't think that metaphor flies but it's been a tough day so I'm leaving it. Rough day, rough draft.

    That and a lucky shot against against a decrepit jones aint enough for me.

    Unless being a punch bag for dawson a few times also gets him points

    He’s not.

    It’s good to see some of those names on there for the first time. Bungu definitely deserves to be on the list, whether he gets in or not is another story

    Tim is known as the guy who got a gift decision vs Pac, in the wider world. Rhetorical.

    Timmy ruled a pretty good 140 division for several years. I think he deserves it just for that, not to mention the wins over Pac and JMM. I think he definitely deserves it. He came outta nowhere flying out of a fucking cannon after that win over Witter.

    Ab game 1st ballot hof'er easy. All time first ballot, no doubt. His dad really fucking drilled his ass into the ground. He didn't want no chubby ass kids. Jeez.

    Hopkins, JMM, Mosley, Diego Corrales, Calderon would be my votes if I had to pick just five for this time. There's more on there that should get in.

    if they put just singular fights in the Corrales/Castillo is a lock
