Default Bute, worst hype job of the decade?

I was gonna go with Khan but two things stopped me

1. A lot of people didn't even rate Khan, whereas Bute was universally lauded pretty much.

2. Khan actual has beat some okay fighters

Any other nominations?

Michael Grant

Jeff Lacy also deserves a mention

Bute was something like Lacy everyone was talking he will beat them all blah blah blah once he faced a guy that is in top 3 in division he was embarrassed, so while he was a world champion i must rate him as hypejob certainly was hyped more than he deserved...

GGG is not too far off from claiming the hype job crown.

I reckon prime Left Hook separates Bute from his senses.

Jorge Linares, Rocky Juarezwould be my picks.

And the joke that is the career of Audley Harrison.

Na, rocky juarez almost beat MAB. Bute got destroyed the first time he didn't fight a bum or gatekeeper.

I feel a bit sorry for Lacy as people never take into account his shoulder injury turning him into a one handed fighter

Bute should have another L on his record, Andrade KO'd him first time around

Not a hype job, the guy knows how to box and is leathel. Froch was just exceptionally hungry that night and I'm positive that if Ward didn't duck Bute, it would of been a much better fight!

Hyped up tremendously in ESB but I think he's still a top fighter in his division. Wouldnt say he's a fraud
