What are your expectations/feelings on this year's IBHOF inductions?

Last year the inductees were solid choices, though some might question Rocky’s inclusion. This year, the one guy who seems an absolute lock is Thomas "Hitman" Hearns. After that it gets pretty interesting as fighters like Joey Archer, "Prince" Naseem Hamed, Miguel "Happy" Lora become eligible as does the controversial Sven Ottke (who had at least four wins that were considered among the worse decisions in modern boxing history). Dariusz Michalczewski, Wilfredo Vazquez, Mark Johnson,and Donald Curry also are included.

Now I don’t know who is on the entire list of names and I don’t know who votes for them and I don’t fully understand the process, but what I do sense is there likely will not be enough Asian fighters, and guys like Jose Louis Ramirez, Stevie Collins, Hilario Zapata, Tony DeMarco, Juan Coggi, Dave Sands, Johnny Tapia, Jose Legra, nd many others too numerous to list will be passed over. Hell, I could make a strong case for any number of South Korean, Japanese, Filipino and/or Thai fighters, not to mention guys from other countries. What are your expectations?
