My favorite hall of famer is Alexis Arguello.

Arguello is there every year for induction week. He is cool , really friendly guy. Last year was my 1st year to attend & he was the 1st fighter I met.

So can you be inducted into the HOF without winning a title? For instance say a boxer goes 100-0-0, undeafeted with no title, can he be inducted?

no way, any of us could go 100.0.0 depending on the bums you pick to fight.

A group of 150 elects the inductees, but they get a card and they vote.
