    Ricky Hatton gets in down the line in my opinion, decent enough record, only lost to some great fighters in Mayweather & Pacquiao. Beat Tszyu, beat Jose Luis Castillo...didn't really seek out a load of dangerous fighters, but at 140 he was the man for a while.

    Interesting that Chico and Gatti were brought up to compare with Hatton as I wanted to see all those guys fight each other.

    no, people "hate" on Hatton cause of his opponent selection for the vast majority of his career aside from Tszyu (depending on who you ask) and the two guys he lost to, after winning against Kostya he fought the likes of Maussa, was given a gift against Collazo, a good win against a then undefeated Urango, fought a shot Castillo, then got his ass whooped by Floyd, looked like crap against Lazcano, beat up Malignaggi, then got his ass KO'd again this time by Pacquiao, it's not that stellar of a title reign if you really break it down

    Hatton is going into the hall..why wouldn't he? He's not my favourite boxer but he was an undisputed 140lb champion with a fairly decent post-Warren record. He's not going down as an ATG but Hall of Fame? Sure, he provided his fans with some good memories.

    he was the lineal jr welterweight champion, he NEVER was the undisputed jr welterweight champion he only held the IBF/WBA/and IBO titles, never held the WBC or WBO

    Only way he sees the HOF is as a paying customer.

    Yeah fair do's, I suppose he was never going to be with Floyd and Cotto in the 140 division. I think he'll go in more for what he brought to boxing. The massive fan base, hysteria and of course, turnbuckle K.O's.

    I think he gave Floyd one of his hardest fights for a while. Just coz you last the fight with someone does not mean you have given them a harder fight. He came in to fight Floyd and Floyd got a fight. If he was allowed to work on the inside it could have been more difficult for him. Hatton still would have lost but Floyd would have struggled more.

    He definitely gets in. He had mass appeal and brought boxing to a much wider audience.

    Previously obscure parts of the boxing lexicon, like knowledge of check hooks and turnbuckles for example, he brought to the casual fight fans around the world.

    No doubt Hatton is one of the most famous boxers from the modern era, easy in to the Hall of Fame.
    For every story told that divides us, I believe there are a thousand untold that unite us.
