Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

Who do you guys think is the most overrated fighter right now?
I really can't choose. Maybe Demetrius Andrade?

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

Teofimo Lopez, without a shadow of a doubt, kid has done nothing, only prospect who has been dropped, is being talked about like he is well ahead of Haney, R Garcia, Stevenson, V Ortiz, well he is not!, very young kid, untested, inexperienced, just like them, and I dint think he is the most impressive of the bunch, Stevenson is. In my opinion, to even talk about Vasyl Lomachencko vs Teofimo Lopez in the near future, is preposterous, he hasn't been 7 full rounds, beaten any fighter who is on the same level as Beltran or Flanagan, beat two guys who were past what they were when they lost by stoppage to Beltran and Flanagan.

Who is the best prospect, Lopez, Stevenson, Haney, is very arguable, but they are all prospects, all have a lot to prove, all far from ready to fight at the top, let's get that right.

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

Teofimo looks the real deal imo. Has power, speed, variety, judges distance well. Everything really. I'm really looking forward to seeing him fight at world level. I think he's ready to step up in class.

andrade

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

Andrade. J Miller. Both Charlos. Tevin Farmer.

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

By the way bud, my post is just my honest opinion, in no way supposed to take a dig at anyone who disagrees.

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

Interesting list, I can't say I disagree on the Charlos, I think Farmer is interesting, in his last fight, he tried to hard to knock the guy out, he tried to be a puncher when he naturally isn't one. I don't think Miller is overrated personally, but more because most people don't rate him highly.

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

joyce

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

Charlo's and Farmer for sure. I see nothing Special in them.

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

Farmer, people who think he can beat Davis let alone go rounds with him are out of their minds

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

I agree

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

I don't think you can ever say someone is out of their mind based on a prediction.

I think Farmer could give Davis some minor problems, with his movement, output, variety, but the power difference is a heck of a lot, Davis seems to be a notch up, in terms of variety, defence, seems to be even better than Farmer, has decent output himself, he has skill, can go through the gears, is more durable than Farmer as well, and I think Davis would beat Farmer without much trouble, by stoppage, and he would be a fair way ahead on th cards, might just be good fighter against great fighter if Davis is as good as we think he is, but I think Farmer could go past 8 rounds, could make it interesting for 4 rounds.

I think Farmer, against Fonseca, was an example of a non-puncher trying to be a puncher, loading up, busting a gut to hit as hard as he can, but as we saw against Dib and Tennyson, better performances from Farmer, he does most damage when he works the body, takes a toll on his opponent round after round, and uses volume.

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

I'd agree with Joyce. I'm not sure if you can class Jono Carroll as overrated....but I don't rate him one bit.

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

I agree on Carroll, why on earth does he get the Farmer shot when he didn't even win the eliminator?

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

frenois is the official challenger but there is an agreement it's a defence by exemption

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

and let's be honest, mighty lucky to get the draw! He's a bit like the poorer Conlon, just a matter of time before he gets beat so may as well throw him in with someone decent so it doesn't look as bad!

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

in my opinion frenois has won

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

Here's a bit of a controversial one.....how about Dillian Whyte? I'm not saying he hasn't improved but look at his last 2 fights. He was seconds away from being stopped when the bell saved him vs Parker. Against Del boy the 2nd time round he was losing that fight on the cards, fair enough he got the KO but I think a lot of that was down to the 2nd points deduction on Chisora, making him go for broke thinking he was losing, which opened him up for the KO. 2 wins which he very nearly lost against guys who aren't elite fighters.

I say overhyped because a lot of people have him down as the 4th best heavyweight out there, I think Ortiz and Povetkin are better personally.

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

He beat Parker, that's the bottom line. I don't think it was about the point deduction, at all, Whyte hurt Chisora in round 1, he took his ability to hurt him, for granted, slacked off. Parker is good, only one to go 12 with Joshua, 'shit fight, I thought it was fixed', I know you are not one of those, but neither guy took much damage.

I understand your opinion, because when it comes to amateur pedigree, and overall technical skill, there is no comparison whatsoever, but I think Whyte is top 5, would beat Ortiz and Povetkin.

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

I'd really like to see him in against one of those two and soon because they're no spring chickens. From his point of view he wants one of the big 3 of course, preferably AJ getting him the best pay day. With AJ's eyes now on the States, we'll see.

Re: Most Overrated Boxer At The Moment?

Good lists guys!
I understand Lopez, but we still don't know what he's capable of.
Tevin Farmer I always thought, never impressed me at the level to were he could beat Tank.
Charlos, especially Jermell, are overrated.
