Default When did you get caught in the hype?

I was just thinking about the Calzaghe-Kessler fight and I remembered back to the Lacy fight. I hadn't even seen Lacy fight except for a few highlights of him knocking guys out. Yet for some reason I saw the physiques, heard the hype and believed he was actually an elite boxer or that he could whoop Calzaghe only to see the biggest battering I've seen in a ring live.

Looking back I'm dissapointed in myself but I learned a valuable lesson, one that hadnt been learned years before with Naseem Hamed (even though I had seen him fight and I was young at the time.). Do your research.

Has anybody else been caught up in the hype?
