I see him ranked in top 100 P4P lists and top 10 middleweight lists too much for my liking. So I'd say he was overrated, even if he may well have gone on to prove himself more if he hadn't died.
Someone who was a star and died young will always rank high. He looks good on film, but his resume isn't that impressive to me.
