Default Re: Underachiever or overachiever?

Well the weak guys were overachievers.

Leon got a a shot at a shot champion rather than the best heavyweight in the world.

Moorer never beat bowe and he barely beat a heart attack suffering holy.

Carnera was lucky to get a shot at Sharkey as opposed to schmelling.

Briggs probably has the weakest claim ever and is only recognised by internet people. Real world never saw him as a champion. He was a journey man and a good one at that, never anything more.

Vitali was an underachiever due to injuries I believe. Tyson was an underachiever but redeemed himself by regaining his crown ten years after first winning it.

Johnson was an underachiever. Had he stayed in shape he'd have been a huge favourite over the 4 guys he was busy ducking. Probably solidifying a status as the goat.

Jeffries retired when he could have probably beat Johnson hence missing a potentially career defining victory.

Holmes would also have been a huge favourite in any unification fight but he shied away for some reason.

Rahman overachieved with one of the best right hands in heavyweight history.
