    I enjoyed meeting, interviewing, and becoming friends with this sensational former champion. He was an incredibly gifted fighter who--in my mind--is a lock for induction when his time arrives. He could box and he could rumble. He made something like 18 title defenses.

    I look forward to sitting proudly in the crowd when the day comes that this outstanding young man is enshrined alongside the greats in boxing history.

    I was also fortunate enough to meet Calderon at the Hall of Fame. He was very personable with all the fans that approached him that weekend. I walked away very impressed with him as a person.

    His career is not talked about enough. He was a ring technician and a fighter admired by many purists, myself included. Because of the weight class he fought at, he was never really given the full recognition for his accomplishments as I think he deserved.

    Calderon is unquestionably a future Hall of Famer.
