Default Most overrated European fighter of the decade?

Following Tunney/Carnivore/Kid Lavigne/Whoever he wants to call himself today's anti-American thread, for the sake of balance it's only fair to do a similar poll on European fighters.

So, who is the most overrated European boxer of the past ten years?

None of these guys are/were overrated at all imo, you missed Amir Khan though, he is.

I don't think Calzaghe is as overrated as many think he is.

I know it's trendy to hate him, but he does have skills. His style is ugly with those "slaps", but effective. You don't move up in weight and beat Hopkins if you're overrated.

Ricky hatton by a country mile.

Critique him for his slapping style & his best opponents age, but Calzaghe at least was visually a highly skilled & athletic fighter. Hatton i just cannot fathom how the british were so endearing to such a limited fighter. I dont get how he was entertaining to watch with all his hugging & smothering of opponents.

I forgot about him, but he's really only come to prominence at the very end of the decade, plus he's far too young to make a fair judgement about him one way or the other, IMO. The way he's ducked Maidana is bad, though, but I still don't think someone who only really came to prominence in 2009 could reasonably be called the most over-rated European fighter of the entire decade.

What he does is effective. His resume is my problem.
