Yeah he was kind of overrated, but as far as was he the worse in history, you need to put Calzaghe AND Pacquiao's names as front runners. Considering the fact that Joe and Manny are way bigger stars, way more known worldwide, and neither one has faced more tougher competition, in their prime than Devon, seriously..

No, that would be Tomasz Adamek.

Alexander is a very good boxer. He just has a godawful style that nobody ever wants to watch and will find it impossible to build a fanbase.

He was overhyped by HBO some no question. But its not like websites and youtube videos were coming out the woodwork hyping this guy rediculously. Its not like he was selling out arenas around the country. The dude cant sell flies to sh1t anywhere outside of St. Louis.

The boxing community started to overhyped him when he destroyed Urango, in that fight he showed speed, power and boxing skills, it was an awesome performance, I even believed it.

I say Berto and Zab Judah were bigger hypes with big disappointing endings. Hell I remember Max Keller was all over Judah dong

Not even close. He was never even on peoples p4p lists. You have guys like Canelo and Khan who have been on a lot of top 10 lists without doing anything to earn it.
