If I remember right there was quite a number that did give Rhodes a fair chance, I think it's not really a case of overestimating Rhodes/Rees' ability more of underestimating Alvarez's//berto's ability. I remember the hate Alvarez used to get, saying he will be found out when he eventually steps up but he has answered every question so far.
It's evident that Broner is not well liked on here, I don't really like him personally too much here and that can often cloud judgement towards a boxers ability. I really think Broner is just on an another level to Rees, but upsets do happen!
