aaron was an enigma more then anything else. over time, instead of being underrated - he has become overrated.

not an enigma....no secret what stopped him, a raging cocaine addiction...without that he would have been invincible for 3 or 4 years...leonard was afraid to fight him and Hearns was destroyed by him as a gold glover

Pryor is slightly underrated, however, that is only by the general public. True boxing fans know how good he was, therefore not being underrated. I think someone like Eder Jofre is the most underrated, as most boxing fans (I do generalise greatly here) don't even know who he was, let alone the public.

Nicky Furlano also beat Hearns as an amateur. Tommy had a dismal KO record then. It wasn't until he turned pro that he became a big KO hitter.

Eder Jofre.

Underrated might be the wrong word to describe him, since everyone who saw him realized how special and great he was; unknown may be a more fitting word. Whenever discussing the greatest fighters of all-time, his name is rarely brought up--if at all. It's a damn shame. Eder Jofre, the greatest bantamweight to ever live, has been described as the 118 pound version of Ray Robinson. And that's no hyperbole. He was that good.

underappreciated would be the best choice of words for pryor.
