Congrats to Mike Tyson, Julio Cesar Chavez, and Kosta Tszyu for being selected to the 2011 International Boxing Hall of Fame. All three gave us all time great fights to remember.

Big credit to all 3 guys as they are worthy HOF legends.

What? He was a great fighter.

Congrats to all three guys!!! Im a little shocked to see Tszyu make it so soon though. It seems to me like he's not quite on Chavez and Tyson's level but he definitely deserves to be there.

I'm a little surprised that nobody is bothered by this one.

Yeah being the first person to become UNDISPUTED 140lb champion is not on the level of Tyson & Chavez?

WTF? I thought he was joking. Do you get into the HOF for pretending to be a great fighter nowadays?

there are different categories, you don't have to be a fighter to get inducted into the HOF.

I can accept that on the grounds that trainers should get recognition too. But if pretending to be a boxer can get you in there, welcome to the Hall of Fame Audley

I knew someone was going to throw someone's name in there. Just didn't know whose.

He raised the profile of boxing with the Rocky movies & has been a big supporter of boxing.

LOL if they'd a Wall of Shame in the Hall of Fame he'd be a guaranteed first ballot.

I don't mind it since people can get in for fighting, training, or "media". If it's only for fighters and they made him an honorary member I'd be pissed though.

No problem with sly getting in. He was inducted as an ambassador of the sport, not as a fighter.
