  5. The HoF must be partially based on promotion/self-promotion. Hamed didn't have a HoF career. That seems pretty obvious.

    It is the hall of FAME, not the hall of accomplishments.

    edit: if you consider the monetary impact he had on the sport, the lower weights, the modern showman ship, he certainly had a HOF worthy career.

    why not?

    dude was 36-1, 31 knockouts, the lineal fw champ, one of the hardest punchers at his weight, and one of the biggest draws of the smaller guys.

    a lot worse people than naz are in the hof

    It's the Hall of Fame though - not the Hall of Very Good. There should be a balance, but Gatti had a big impact in terms of being a consistently popular TV and live draw. In terms of the "fame" part, there's an argument for him.

    He unified the belts and only lost to Barrera. Seems HoF material to me.
