  • I was there in 2014 For Trinidad’s (among many) induction!! To this day and with all of the fights I’ve attended, that was the most MEMORABLE event I’ve EVER ATTENDED!!! Great memories…..

  • I am old enough and fortunately lucky enough to say that I came here in the 90(5 times) and 5 times in the 2000s.was able to meet Joe Frazier,Ken Norton,Marvin Hagler and others several times before there passing.Great memories!

  • Iron boy. I met him a very long time ago and when I stood next time I felt tall and I’m not. He was cool and his fights with I think it was Segura were great. Congratulations to him. Of course, hatton too. That was one I wish to meet one day.

    • Think, after Finito, Iron Boy is only the second person in the HOF who primed at strawweight. They’ll probably have company in a few years with Seniesa Estrada, but unless I’m really overlooking someone, it’s just those two at the moment.

      And I agree: LOVED Calderon.

  • I’m happy to see Moorer get his due. He was a terror at light heavy. It’s a shame he, Virgil Hill, and Charles Williams ran on parallel tracks. They could have had some great fights.
