thanks for the fight...cheers! - joe strong 
Default The most underrated wins of ATG fighters?

I think that Roy Jones Jr. is getting almost no credit for beating Lou Del Valle, as Honey Boy doesn't have a single meaningful win on his record. But guy was really damn good, slick southpaw with some great skillset, decent speed, power and footwork, generally good all around fight with great jaw, I'm big fan of him. I also think that beside his loss to Roy Jones, he should've won all his other championship fights. Especially in first fight against Girard I thought it was really clear winner and he might've been past prime already because of low activity and troubles with getting good fights. Big underachiever.
Any other examples?

I don't think Hearns gets anywhere near the credit he deserves for virtually shutting out Benitez.

Trinidad's wins against Reid and Campas.
Floyd and Oscar's wins over Hernandez.
Tyson's Holmes and Spinks wins seem a little written off.
Hamed against Bungu.
Pac against Ledwaba.

And it wasn't an off night for Benitez either. His 'radar' and reflexes were very sharp that night.


To add another underappreciated victory I'll toss in Floyd Patterson's win over Archie Moore.

Archie was far from finished in the mid 50s......and lets be honest; if it hadn't happened and a poll was placed on a likely outcome I think it would have been a pickem fight. Floyd was fantastic that night!

Salvador Sanchez KO 15 Azumah Nelson. Sanchez died tragically soon after and at that time no one knew Nelson would become a ATG. A great win you never hear much about

Larry Holmes defeated a prime Ray Mercer convincingly for a title belt well into his forties. Mercer would later give Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield the fights of their lives a few years later. Yet, it seems like a lot of people forget about that. I think Larry is easily in the top-five heavyweights ever...

Holmes-Mercer wasn't for any heavyweight title.

No, this is probably Sanchez most overrated win.

Mercer showed up flat more than a few times too. Good win though.
