Today Cowherd went on and on about how great Rocky was for boxing....

Personally, I think its okay but its sad that more people wanna talk about Rocky than Mike Tyson, who is also being inducted.

Rocky Balboa?...They are inducting a fictional boxing character into the hof?

Edit: Okay, got it, Sylvester Stallone. If they want to give him an acknowledgement that's one thing, but to induct him into the HOF, nah.

It's because of the significance the movie had on the sport and because Sly has actually contributed a LOT to boxing besides that movie.

Abbott and Costello are in the Baseball HOF.
