Dzindziruk is underrated talentwise but has virtually no results
How the hell is Vasquez a one hit wonder?He is the ring magazine superbantamweight champion of the world.He is in the top ten p4p best fighters.He's been the wbc and ibf champ.he has good boxing skills and a great punch.He has beaten top fighters like Rafa Marquez,Jhonny Gonzalez,and Oscar Larios whom he k.oed and pac couldn't even do that.Tell me how is he a one hit wonder?

Since i saw De la Hoya some where on this thread..

Overrated: ODLH..
Underrated: ODLH..

Throughout his whole career, he was pretty much both, but now, especially.

That was just intended for the media to pump up interest in the fight. Manny always has a full slate of options for how his fighters should react based on what their opponents are trying to do. It doesn't always work & no trainer or fighter is perfect, but more than 9 times outta 10 his fighters are winners. Taylor hardly listens to Manny after the first bell anyway.

Underrated/ Ivan Caulderon - Probably the best Strawweight fighter ever,and he gets no where near half the attention that he deserves, some dont have him near there top 10 P4P lists and its ridiculous.

Overrated/ Chad Dawson - Kid beats an elite fighter that fitted his style and was dropped in the 9th, Dawson wasnt so dominant after that Knockdown. People here act like hes the next RJJ and some are already saying hes America's savior for the heavyweight division.

over rated - manny pac - to an extent anyway. he needs to box marquez again or a guzman or even a valero. morales had sod all left in fights 2 and 3. barrera just came to survive and was in his 70th fight.

under rated - arthur abraham - alright the jaw incident against miranda was a bit controversial. but aside from that he outboxed miranda and throughly deserved the win. he's a great combo puncher and tough as old boots.

Dzindziruk is underrated talentwise but has virtually no results
solis ain't done nothing yet in the pro's though has he.

except eat.

chris john is decent. he got well lucky against marquez though. hometown decision if i ever saw one.

dzindziruk is decent yeah. got some good skills. but he's so under the radar in a boring light middle division though.
