    No, thinking you are privy to a generally nice/humble public figures actual internal composition based on the extremely limited knowledge, view, and exposure you have of them is called overly assumptious delusions of grandeur.

    Manny Pacquiao obviously. GGG is another one.

    Evander Holyfield, I admire his courage and a great fighter, but preaches constantly about God, and yet he fathers I 10 kids out of wedlock.

    I agree. Some fans I spoke to at the IBHOF said he’s consistently one of the most standoffish fighters at the event.

    In addition, despite my belief that he would beat Tyson 10 out of 10 times, their interactions are painful to watch. I recently watched a 4-hour special on Tyson, where Evan Fields responds to incessant praise, humility, and friendly pats on the shoulder/arm/knee with reluctant smiles and virtually nothing nice in return.

    I like Cotto as a fighter, but dislike the way he stormed out of the ring without an interview following the loss to Trout. I thought Trout was respectful throughout the buildup and deserved better.

    Nothing to do with humbleness.

    I would agree with Joshua, from afar he seems the type who would agree with whoever paid him the most, I emphasize 'seems'. You could not be more wrong about Pac, though. I don't like how he acts after losses but he is a very unselfish man with a heart of gold. Outside the ring he's 'too nice'.

    I only picked Pacquiao because of the excuses, there were plenty more I could've picked, I don't know why I picked Pacquiao, probably because what he said was recent and it is fresh in mind, I probably should've said Cotto instead or Andre Ward

    I don't think Ward is very humble, there's plenty of ego and fakery with him. I married a filipina, so I know and hear a lot about what Pac does. A friend of mine knows him personally aswell, so I know his generosity. He does **** me a bit with some of the things he says after a loss but it's a small chink in his character and his good massively outweighs his bad. We all have our faults. To call Ugas his weakest opponent after the fight is poor.

    A lot of them are humble until they lose, that's when their ego shows.

    Mike Tyson.

    He likes to think he's laid back and at peace with himself, but he still acts like a bully on the odd occasion.

    Ricky Hatton for me, which is why I'm glad Pacquaio KTFO.

    Joshua gets a bit of a bad rep because he got caught selling some weed and the news media brandished him a criminal because of that.

    The papers also falsely reported that he never sees his child he fathered with his ex gf which is also untrue.

    I couldn't really say who's truly ''fake humble'' because most boxers (no offense) don't have alluring, larger than life personalities where you can actually get a good idea on who they truly are off camera.
