The heart of sports is the glory of competition. But the soul of sports is the sweet memory of that glory. Sports fans thrill in the moment, but we live largely in the past.
That's always been the attraction of Hall of Fames. The sports Halls are pilgrimage sites for fans to revel in the days gone by.
The weekend in June when boxing's greatest past stars flock to Canastota, New York, for the induction ceremony each year is always a moment to treasure for a true boxing fan. I highly recommend the trip to any who can make it.
I've overlooked some likely candidates on this list. There are boxing stars who will almost certainly make the Hall of Fame someday but haven't done enough yet to be "locks" if they never box again. There are other fighters with decent cases for induction who might actually get in.
But the 10 fighters on this list should receive little opposition.
