Joshua

The most overrated boxer of all time? Never seen so much hype for someone who has not beaten anyone world class, he has played the system very well getting easy belts against nobodies while the genuinely world class fighters would challenge themselves against the other world class fighters. His one fight against any noteworthy opponent was a Klitschko who will be getting his monthly pension payments soon. AJ is a con artist, he is the Belgium of boxing, getting the top rank in the world by winning against nobodies.

Fury for me is the best in the world right now and while I also don't like Fury and WIlder for avoiding the big fights, at least they had one against each other to their credit. Hopefully Joshua has learned an important lesson. When you keep dodging the challenging fights and always fight nobodies, you eventually become complacent, you eventually lose your cutting edge, and in the end you get the shiite beaten out of you by a morbidly obese manlet.

Tyson should focus one 1 more comeback fight, take on the Ruiz/Joshua winner, and then have a retirement match vs Wilder for all the gold.

He’s already said only wants 3/4 more fights to prove his doubters wrong before retiring.

I’d say the biggest hype job was Amir Khan.
You forget the machine was behind him, and did what they could to get him a world title.
He gets blasted, but still has a world title shot! Then gets blasted again, and he thinks hes one of the greats...
At least AJ is humble with it. Sure, AJ was hyped too. But hes Olympic Gold Champion. What do you expect?
Hyped, yes, But hes no fraud.

AJ still got rid of some semi decent fighters. Ok Klitch was past his best, but he was past his best against Fury too. I think that there was something wrong against Riaz. Whether that comes out in the future, who knows but he was definitely off from his ring walk to moments before the fight.
AJ will never be in the class of Fury as a boxer, but not many have in the last 20 years at heavyweight. AJ is a top finisher though and showed he can box against Parker and whyte.

do people actually understand the meaning of overrated? world champion boxers are not overrated, usually they are in the top 10-15 in the world at what they do, overrated boxers are guys like david price, audley Harrison, lauded amatuers who came into the pro game with fanfare and were no where near good enough when anywhere near world level

Cannot believe that Charles Martin was a world champion when AJ won the belt

Totally agree about Harrison and price.

It's amazing to look back at how much hype, and money went into Harrison.

Looking back at the fight it's pretty clear that Ruiz won that fight because he caught Joshua in round three and he just didnt know what the hell had happened. To be on his stool at the end of the sixth asking his trainer why he was feeling like he was, is, for a professional boxer, almost insane if you think about it.

You are feeling like that cause you just got your clock cleaned a few minutes ago, how can you be a boxer and not know that.

Worst HW champion I've seen.

I mind he was in the SSN studio when the fight was announced with his crown clobber on. Didn't sound confident then at all. Knew he was getting clobbered
