I agree with Chandler and Galaxy. My other three would be Saddler(he beat Pep 3 times), Pedroza, and Olivares(he was one of the most exciting fighters in boxing history).

I agree with your picks. For me, I also think George Foreman is under appreciated. Sure he's liked plenty, but what he did in his comeback is a miracle. How many fighters on the list have performed miracles?

Hard to do, most over rated would have been easier. Some people I'd take out altogether.
