El Inca~Edwin Valero~27-0, 27KO~Ready For IBHOF?

When the question of the highest knockout percentages among champions in boxing comes up, one name always stands well apart from the others. That would be El Inca, Edwin Valero of Venezuela, with three perfect cubes of three, 27 fights, 27 wins, and 27 KOs,  not to mention the zer0 factor of no losses, all accomplished by age 28.

He was a two division champ holding the WBA superfeatherweight title and then WBC lightweight title with a final 8-0, 8 KO title record. Average title bout ended midway through the 6th round, the rest of his 19 nontitle fights ending on average early in the 2nd round.

He was loyal beyond belief to Venezuela which is one of the more beautiful yet dangerous paradises of the world and to his El Presidente Hugo Chavez:

Valero is eligible for induction in the IBHOF next year, but can he ever make it in light of his murderously destructive self annihilation that left his two little girls without a mother and a father?
