    Keith Thurman, Danny Garcia and Shawn Porter were bang average, mediocre fighters were were overrated, overpaid and more famous than they should have been due to their nationality and the 147lbs divisions popularity.

    I also recall Devon Alexander being overrated massively, strangely at one point for the same reasons. Despite being a poor fighter. It's no surprise to me how his career quickly went, he's 2 wins 7 defeats 1 draw in his last 10 fights.

    Vitali Klitschko is the most overrated and Keith Thurman is the most underrated

    Tyson Fury for me. Uses his size well but some here at one point genuinely had him in GOAT conversations when his 3rd best win is Chisora

    Yes I agree.

    US and UK fighters get a lot of hype behind thethe more obscure fighters like Beterbiev and Usyk are underrated by many.

    Well when he eats Usyk you can reserve that opinion

    To see true greatness and beauty you have to truly understand Tyson Fury which very few people do.

    Tyson Fury on his night can beat any man born from their mother

    Thanks to the Vegas judges for their gift decisions he really should have had several losses in all fairness

    I don't like Mayweather either. But several losses? You seem intent on mentioning this. Which fights?

    I remember those sparring rumors of it being that apparently he hit harder than povetkin. It was ridiculous

    I think he has a good chance of winning. He uses his size very well. I didn’t say I didn’t think he was a good fighter, I just think people overrate him (even though I know your posts are tongue in cheek)
