Here are a few of the shoe ins.
There could be no argument that the greatest home run slugger of all time should be in the International Fat Athlete's Hall of Fame. Babe Ruth was as skilled with the bat as he was with the fork. Back in his day with a scarcity of junk food the Babe still managed to be quite fat.
Inductee George Herman Ruth aka The Babe, The Bambino, Babe Ruth and the Sultan of Swat was the consummate glutton. When he was not smacking four baggers and thrilling crowds at Yankee Stadium he was boozing it up, dining in New York's finest eatery's and banging groupies. The Babe, without a doubt, belongs in the International Fat Athlete's Hall of Fame.
Born Eric Esche, Inductee The Butter Bean is the greatest super heavyweight boxer of the modern era. While we won't be seeing the Bean anytime soon in the Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota,; we at Bigger Fatter Blog see the Bean, the king of the three rounder as the greatest super heavyweight fighter of all time and is opponents would agree.
How can we forget two time world champion heavyweight boxer Big George Foreman?! The only man to legitimately beat Big George was Muhammed Ali but back then he wasn't fat. Ali would not have stood a chance against the cheese burger munching Big George who KO'd then champion Michael Moorer. If Ali had faced the same Foreman who defeated him in the Rumble in the Jungle the out come would have been very different. In his later years a happy Big George Foreman discovered the power of the cheese burger he was an even craftier boxer and more devastating punch than when he hair and was skinny, and scowling. Being hungry all the time made him weak and easy pray for quick punching of a better fed Ali.
Big George Foreman is now officially inducted into the International Fat Athlete's Hall of Fame.
Inductee Rudolf Walter Wanderone, Jr. (January 19, 1913 – January 15, 1996) better known as Minnesota Fats was without doubt the greatest pool hustler to ever play the game. Fats has been recognized by the sport was was inducted in 1984 into the Billiard Congress of America Hall of Fame for his decades-long public promotion of pool.
Inductee William Perry (born December 16, 1962) but best know by Chicago Bears fans as “The Refrigerator” or, abbreviated, “The Fridge” and also known as William the Refrigerator Perry. The Fridge's on field performance should put him in to the Football Hall of Fame in Canton Ohio but we feel that not only was the beloved fridge perhaps the greatest NFL football player of all time but his versatility as not only a blocker but as a running back and passer make the Refrigerator a member of the the International Fat Athlete's Hall of Fame.
Inductee Nelson Frazier, Jr. (born February 14, 1972) is AKA Big Viscera, Mabel, Viscera, Big Daddy V, and King V. Best known as Big Viscera, Frazier is the most intimidating force to ever enter a WWE wrestling ring. His signature move is the body Avalanche. He is also known for boning WWE ring announcer Lillian Garcia and for breaking the Undertaker's eye socket with a powerful leg drop.
It's up to BFB's readers to nominate other great fat athletes. Please give us your thought on which fat athletes should be inducted into the International Fat Athlete's Hall of Fame.
Another inductee is wrestler Max Capacity. While WWE bills the Big Show as as the world's largest athlete at 650 pounds Maximum Capacity is indeed the world's biggest athlete. Sorry Vince McMahon.
Max is not just the biggest athlete in the world, he is also a world champion in two different promotions. Max not only won the prized FOW hardcore championship but he also won the coveted WCEW hard core championship belt.

Meat Face is right! John Daley is a living legend and the most talented golfer to ever play the game and he did it while he was really really fat! What was I thinking? SHEESH! Thank you Meat Face for bringing us to our senses. Golfing great John Daley most certainly exemplifies everything that the New Fat Acceptance represents. ie honest straight forward hedonism, debauchery and greedy gluttony. He's a true American hero!
I've got the drinkers and the smokers and the eaters on my side. They like what we do. -John Daley-
