      It goes to show how much a fighter's standing in the sport can change in a matter of months. At the time, for example Canelo had not fought Lara or Angulo and he was seen as a hype job by quite a few. Same with Wilder at the time, he was seen as the ultimate hype job. And even GGG and Kovalev, they hadn't had their real standout performances or results and still divided opinion.

          • I'm going to go with a guy not listed: Andre Ward. It's not that he's a bad guy, and it's not that he's not a top level guy-- He just gets wayyyy tooo much p4p and 'wise commentator' love for his level of activity, achievement, and actual performance.

            • Canelo Alvarez
              Erislandy Lara
              Danny Garcia

              These three are the top 3.

                  • Who did YOU vote for and are you surprised how the fighter(s) turned out almost 3 years later?

                    • BUMP

                      Pretty hilarious to see how things have changed in the years since I first made this thread, especially how many people thought Canelo would be classed a hype job.

                      Which retrospective career has surprised YOU the most?
