My vote would go to Kostya Tszyu.This supposed all time great who spent his entire career defending his title in a dead division consisting of worthless mandatories and shot fighters above their best weight.


A very ugly,awkward fighter to watch also.This so called devestating right hand that gained fame through cracking the glass chin of arguably the second most overrated fighter of the last decade in Judah.


An overrated puncher and an overrrated fighter with a shallow resume and a lack of desire to fight elite level fighters or even average fighters who had previously beaten and humiliated him on the biggest stage of his career at that point.


There will be many other fighters listed,but these fighters have wins over fighters worth speaking about,who have actually proven their class on a world stage and weren't shot by the time they fought them.




It's your opinion,but back it with a decent argument like my own.

Zab Judah, mentally weak as his chin is..

Diego Corrales, though his exciting, always come up short in fights he needs to win..

I take it Prinsemanspoper just got around to watching Zoo fights for the first time, here comes his inevitable assumptions like he knows him as a fighter inside out because he has seen a couple of his earlier fights.

Tard! Lol

Maybe Judah. He has skills, but didn't do enough with them.

clearly pacman, i think he is a skilled fighter but people are just hyping him because he is filipino.
he still didnt beat marquez, but he is the fighter of decade?
the fighter of decade doesnt get tons of gift decisions.
back then so many ppl were saying how great dempsey is, that he is best p4p fighter ever etc., today ppl rate nearly any heavyweight with a solid resume over him..
without his big filipino fanbase pacquiao would barely make it to the top 3 best fighters of the last decade.

overrated doesnt mean he is bad, just not as good as the media make him out to be.
floyd and wladimir were both better fighters the last decade.

Oh dear.Speaking of assumptions.







Titties needs to learn to read over his post before making himself look like a complete dunce.







Ricky Hatton




Good choice.


Why did you choose Hatton in particular?

Roy Jones jr 2000-2003

This guy never actually fought anyone half decent and yet he was called the p4p champ and he was compared to the likes of Spinks because he moved up and challenged Ruiz for a belt at hw. Talented athlete but completely overrated as a fighter

The first name that comes to mind is de la Hoya.

Perhaps there are others who are/were more overrated, but I think the reasoning used by people who rate him highly is often weak. For example people often say "he fought everyone" as if it means he should be rated higher because of it. Who cares if you fight everyone if they all beat you?

I also think that him winning 6 divisional titles is an overrated statistic. With each generation belts become less important because there are more and more of them, and what's more important is who you win them from and who you defend against. Wins over the likes of Jimmi Brendhal are not all that meaningful.

Obviously he has some good wins on his resume and was a very good boxer, but I don't think he deserves the high praise that he seems to get from a lot of people.

Ricky Hatton is not a terrible fighter but for some reason he is spoke of as if he is great, which he isn't.

He was talked about as if he was great, there seemed to be a big turnaround after Pacquiao KO'd him. Now mostly everything you hear about him is that he's overrated.

Agree 100%.

His promoter does a great job of marketing him as well. He's one of my favorite fighters currently but he is very overhyped and lately his fans, Roach, and promoting is making me kind of dislike him.

He lost to Morales and got beat by JMM. Cotto beat himself by not having the ability to throw a combination in their fight, despite knocking Manny's head back several times, he never followed up with a hook or straight.

He's a ton of fun to watch, but he hasn't done much to impress me seeing how the only fighter he faced that had fight left in him (JMM), kicked his ass.

no . wlad got KO'd twice , and not even by the best of fighters , floyd ducked almost every elite opponent at 147.
floyd's achievements against common opposition with pac are definitely lesser.
pac may be still underrated if anything.

kessler is the most overrated fighter of the last decade if anything.
but it depends on the ranking place.
those overrated/underrated threads are a hit almost every time.
