    A few that this board overrated to the moon and dropped instantly after a loss:

    Postol
    Kambosos
    Joe Joyce

    Postol the best fighter of those 3.

    Joe Joyce and Kambosos were so obviously overhyped. It was clear they weren't anything special.

    Postol got a lot of hype by a small group of people. Postol hype most certainly wasn't forum wide.

    Yeah Broner was stupidly overhyped when they were desperate to fill the void after Floyd. Unfortunately he was utter dog.

    Here in the UK Anthony Joshua was hyped to be Ali after knocking over a load of tin cans and going life and death with shot old retired klitschko all at home. Got found out by an obese little grinning Mexican the first time he ventured overseas, and the bubble burst. Biggest UK hype job in my lifetime.

    Floyd had talent Ive never denied that. He would have made an awesome ballerina I can just picture him doing the dof the dying swan from Swan Lake lol . As for his boxing career he would have never got to the big time without the help & protection of the State Commission, Vegas boxing & their notorious officials plus a career covered by so many dark clouds of suspicion of Peds abuse remember IV gate ??
    I forgot you suffer from amnesia regarding that don't you

    Postol is better than his record would suggest. He had a really close fight with Taylor and in my opinion, he got robbed by Ramirez. There is absolutely no ****ing way anyone can justify giving Ramirez 7 rounds that night.

    Honestly, Postol is one of the most underrated champions of the 2010s. Which is ironic considering he was a bit overhyped after beating Matthysse.

    Beat 5 legitimate top 10 contenders and managed to unify 3 of the 4 belts.
    And that "shot old retired Klitschko" was still THE champion 15 months prior.
    All in all, not bad for the "Biggest UK hype job in your lifetime" I would say.

    Don´t belittle a fighters achievements because of his popularity. Some just have that star power quality about them while others don´t, not matter how great their fights and how good they are.
