Default Re: Is Vitaly Underated

I think he is right up there with the rate, most people have him within their top 15-20 ATG.
With his KO and h2h the rating may be top 10 but Vitaly lack big caliber wins, he lost
the only big fight he had ... doesn't matter that on cuts but he lost to the only other ATG
he faced and nothing is going to change that. His frequent injuries are not helping him either.

If you think H2H comparison then he is going to lose against his 'current' brother so if they
were fighting withing the last 3-4 years Vitaly would not be a champion at the age of 41 anymore.

... so top 15-20 ATG is right with him which is not bad at all.

If he keep going for another 2-3 years winning like another 5-6 fights then he may
jump into the top 10-15 spot range without being overrated.
