Default prospects who became nothing

this is playing off of the other thread about overrated fighters. what fighters through history can you think of that were lauded as being the next big thing as they were coming up only to flame out when the real competition hit.

Tommy Morrison
Michael Grant
Francisco Bohado
David Reid(though i think this one may have more to do with his eye injury)
Sam Peter
Zahir Raheem
Joel Julio(may be jumping the gun here)

any others you guys can come up with?

Francisco Bojado was the first to come to mind.

Oba Carr, to a lesser extent. He had a lot of hype when he was on the rise, a Kronk fighter appearing on USA Tuesday Night Fights and having an endorsement deal. Early on he had that scare against Livingstone Bramble and was fortunate to win the decision. He was a pretty good fighter, but not enough to reach that highest level, and also had the misfortune of being in the same era as welterweights such as Felix Trinidad, Oscar De La Hoya, and Ike Quartey.

Pavlik and Hatton? I don't think so.

They both became good world champions.

Tyrone Trice. He was meant to be the next Tommy Hearns in the Kronk gym but got knocked out by the 'journeyman' Freddie Pendleton in the first round. He had huge expectations.

Steve McCrory was another with very high hopes. The brother of world champ Milton McCrory. Won the USA amateur championships twice and also won gold at the Olympics in '84. His first big shot was against Jeff Fenech when he was an unbeaten prospect and Fenech was also a young prospect who had only just won his first title with about ten fights. Unfortunately he got dominated and knocked out in fourteen rounds. Great fight though. He never really attained much after that though.

None of these were epic fails. Do your homework.

Yep. You'd have to have been another Ray Leonard to get through that lot without a loss. Great era of WW's. Carr would have been a good champion in today's era.

Tony Ayala Jr., I've heard that Bernard Mays was a very good prospect out of Kronk but had bad drinking problems that derailed his career. Tyrell Biggs never lived up to his hype. Ike Ibeabuchi etc. etc. Boxing is full of prospects who never lived up to expectations.
