    This is one way to judge the quality of competition. So how does Floyd Mayweather Jr. stack up?

    Oscar is in for sure. How about Judah, Hatton, Gatti, Corrales, Castillo? I think they're all possible, but not sure-fire.

    If it turns out only 1-2 make it to the HOF will it hurt his legacy? Will it be helped if 5-6 make it?

    Does Genaro Hernandez make it?

    I'm not sure how the HoF works but I would assume Hatton, Corrales and Castillo would make it.

    EDIT: golden boy as well.

    Gatti might get in, where a similarly skilled fighter might not. Guy's got a LOT of fans.

    I would say DLH and Corrales for sure, and Castillo and Gatti as probables.

    De La Hoya is the only name that should make it at this point.

    Gatti can be argued, but i'm not for it. Castillo/Corrales while elite for a period, don't make the HoF either IMHO.

    Good point on Gatti. He's not the best fighter I've ever seen,but like Jim Lampley said he is the ultimate blood and guts warrior and was involved in so many grueling wars where the real winners were the fans.

    DLH is the only shoe-in in my mind.

    Do you think that hurts his all-time standing?

    Castillo doesnt make it in, certainly not on the first ballot, after the nose dive his career took when he started missing weight regularly. Corrales is borderline.

    Gatti and Hatton would only make it in because of popularity, not accomplishments.

    I agree its only DLH at this point.

    You're loco.

    Locks: ODLH, Diego, JLC
    Maybes: Hatton, Genaro
    Looking in: Gatti
     
  14. I think Hernandez is already a HOFer

    Higher standards, we must hold the HoF.

    You can make a case against Diego and JLC, they'll both be there though. Hatton too.

    Thanks indeed sir.

    The Celtics have their Championship Parties at JET tomorrow and The Bank on Friday.

    Opinions on the thread, by the way?
