I think Pone Kingpetch is also in the running for most underrated fighter ever considering he hasn't even been inducted into the HOF.

Harold Johnson is a good shout

As for OVER rated id say Pac Man, he's a GREAT fighter and deserves alot of credit and respect but he is not THE GOAT as ive heard MANY claim and its not even just casual fans like u mean with Mike

I would agree that Pacquaio is overrated in the sense that people are talking as if he is a Top 30 ATG which is something I disagree with.

I wouldn't say he is amongst most overrated fighters of all time because he is a certified ATG. It is more to do with the hype that surrounds the fact he is active and secondly because he is very exciting.

Think about 4 years ago, they were saying the same thing about Mayweather. And the same thing happened in Tyson and Chavez' day.

But I do agree he is overrated in that sense.

Overrated: Lennox Lewis, it isn't hatin', I just don't feel he should be a top 5 heavyweight of all time because he had 2 embarrassing KO losses to C-B level fighters and never really had that career defining win.

Underrated: Of course Harold Johnson like Iron brought up today and yesterday. Also give a shoutout to Jake Lamotta. Probably just because he don't get talked about enough, the man was a great middleweight, arguably the greatest chin, and fought the greatest fighter of all time SIX ****IN TIMES!

Most underrated: Gilberto Roman. One of the greatest Mexican fighters of all time, and IMO the greatest 115 fighter ever. Year after year, the Hall of Fame snubs him.

I think Jake Lamotta is underrated in the sense that alot of people don't realise what he did outside of the 6 Robinson fights in which he did alot and beat alot of good fighters.

But I wouldn't say he is amongst the most underrated fighters of all time considering if 9/10 casual fans know that he beat Sugar Ray Robinson and he had a blockbuster film made about his life starring one of the greatest actors of all time.

When there's fighters like Harold Johnson who is a certifed ATG who beat some of THE greatest fighters of all time, multiple HOF'ers and ATG's and people don't even know who he is. The amount of people I have had PM me asking who is the person in my display picture is remarkable considering he is such a great fighter.

Along with a long list of fighters like Kingpetch and like Sbleeder mentioned Roman who incredibely haven't even been inducted into the HOF and most likely never will.

Overrated: Julio Cesar Chavez, L.Lewis, V.Klitschko, Oscar De La Hoya.

I bolded the last 3 because I think them being active/recently active plays a big factor to be fair.

Underrated: Harold Johnson, Holman Williams, Eddie Booker.

Only started having a proper look at Williams resume and its simply outstanding.
