    Wow! I'm glad to hear that. Gatti brought the cheers for action getting down in da game. And Lane is probably the first and only selectee in the HOF to be a combination of a collegiate national boxing champion, a military world boxing champion, a golden gloves boxing champion, a diamondbelt boxing champion, a decent professional boxer and a great referee. And before he became disabled, a promoter and color commentator. YUP! Great picks. Holla!

    Cheat shot, my South Central Los Angeles friend? "City of the angels," my @$$! You must be a fallin' one, because the devil is all up in your @ss'and keyboard-tapping fingers.


    What did Gatti ever do to you? And what did Judah ever do for you? Maybe you just have bro-hood, Urbanite syet with Judah.

    De mortuis nil aisi bonum! Holla!

    You don't have to be a great fighter to be in the HOF FYI, SCLA Ali. Mr. T will be in there before long for his movie role as Clubber Lang. And you know that he had a knockout over Rocky Balboa, before Rocky whup dat arse. Hehehe!

    Don't be so serious. The HOF is for certain accomplishments, not greatness in being just a legit fighter. Holla!

    radam your 100% right and that's y they need to change the requirements to get in theHOF. Rocky should not be in matter of fact I don'tthink Virgil Hill should be in the HOF either.

    You are a hater, SCLA Ali. Virgil Hill was a thrill. He was on his way to breaking the "old Mongoose" Archie Moore's record for straight defenses without a loss until Tommy Hearns upset Hill. That's right! Hill was the favorite in that fight. The boy could straight up fights back in the day.

    Don't judge him by Roy Jones Jr kayoing him with broken-rib shot. Holla!
