Thats your opinion. The guy is skilled and I think he beat Froch and can prolly clean house at 168 outside of Ward. Wasted? thats a different discussion and his career isnt over to say it yet. I'm talking about skills in the ring not negative press nor the path he has taken nor based on who boxingscene posters praise. You clearly agree with me that the guy is talented so I Dont know what criteria you base your overrated/underated.

Yet, he lost to Mayweather clearly in their rematch, but Floyd is overrated? Constipated logic son.

Clearly Floyd was right about the boxing dynamic when he said "damn i wish i was Mexican"

****! Read and try to cogitate on something before replying.

Above 135, meaning after he had beaten Castillo, Corrales, Hernandez etc, he's saying Floyd has been overrated and that for someone with only a handful of fights in over five years, he still gets too much praise, especially as the P4P #1 guy. Not hard to understand.

With only a handful of fights since 2007, there are many other fighters who have done better work, against better fighters and done more of it, but he still gets too much consideration as the number one p4p guy for fights he had ten years and more ago.

If his work against the best has dropped off dramatically since 2007, should he still be considered the default p4p number one guy when other fighters have much greater wins and more of them over the last 5 years?

He's being overrated as the p4p number one guy now for stuff that was done years and years ago. Get it?

Castillo is certainly one of the best lightweights of the last twenty/thirty years. I'm not sure whether he gets underrated as such because I think most people recognise it. It's a pity that he didn't get that win over Floyd. Should have gone to him despite being a close fight.

He's the only guy fast enough and accurate enough to set traps for Ward.

Thank you for clearing that up for people who are new to the sport. I thought they only did this to Calzaghe.

Its not just his path. Its the constant crying to the ref and inability.......I take that back........the out right refusal to finish like a champion. Its video to prove it. There are too many "Ifs" for me to stand behind this dude. If he fights a whole fight. If he fights so and so. If he comes back. If he developes a killer instinct. You feel me?

I think Ricky Burns is underrated. He is continually written off prior to fights but keeps coming up with the goods. I really hope he gets in amongst the big fights next year, but I think he will have to leave old fish eyes to do so.

Overrated - Miguel Cotto. Always seems to be talked about in the 'elite' category when he isn't at that level. When he steps up he comes up short.
