    Default Most overrated boxer

    Who's the boxer that personally you think is overrated ? That gets far too much coverage in the press and by his fans but you cant see what all the fuss is about. Past and present fighters.

    Pavlik, dont see the attraction to be honest, didnt see it before Hopkins schooled him.

    He has foughten the second most competitive fight with MAyweather of FLoyd's career though going by rounds it should have been a landslide. He also beat Forbes nearly every round who is a very accomplished pro, and he ko'ed Mayorga in a way nobody else has.

    As I look back, I am starting to think more and more Hagler was overrated. Most of his glory comes from beating natural ww's or even a lightweight in DUran's case, but his fight with Duran was very close, and he just had a better jaw then Hearns. Leonard made him look horrible whether he won or not. Besides that I don't consider his competition any stronger than Calzaghe's or Roy JOnes Jr's if not actually weaker. His most recognizable fae besides the other members of the fantastic four was Mugabi who imo turned out to be a joke against top level competition, Terry Norris KO'ed him, Gerland McClellan did as well in 1 round. All in all I think Hagler's career shows that back in the day a few good wins(not even good wins but fights against big name opponents) could consolidate your career where as now you need more than that.

    Roberto Duran vs Marvin Hagler wasn't that close, thats a myth. Check out this thread i already answered your questions above.

    Any possible chance to poke at him, you're right there. Gotta admire your consistency. Dealing with a Pac hater is just as hard as dealing with a Pac fan so you guys are made for each other.

    Just like the Calzaghe thing, wait til Saddoboxer gets in here and sees your post!
