Default Was Devon Alexander the most overrated boxer in history?

I remember a couple of years ago he was being hyped like he was going to be the greatest boxer of all time. Even Mayweather said when he passed the torch it would be to him.

Why was he hyped like this? What was the hype based on?

Lol I think you guys missed my point. Oh well anyway, his hype continued after he beat Maidana IMO... Not as much but I think it picked back up.

Nahhh, but seriously there are far more overrated fighters than a formerly unified jr welterweight champion, real talk.

He's for sure overrated but there's much worse than him. I give him credit he's fought everyone and he's unified before
