"Latest in a long line", makes one 10 year old example "clinging".
Why are you quoting Wig? I didn't reply to Wig. I replied to turbotime. Feel free to quote him, otherwise I'll leave you to get on with it.
That is where the conversation progressed from. That's the idea you were conceived signing to. Also turbo specifically said "Broner was overhyped, that's the only one lately I can think of." And you answered with 10+ year old Jeff Lacy.
Ah I see you like arguing just for the sake of arguing. I don't. Enjoy the rest of your day.
Yeah but he said repeatedly like its a yearly occurrence. I can name Broner, Lacy, ......I'm honestly struggling to think of more recent ones.
Devon Alexander, I hyped the shit outta of him then he gets schooled by a Khan leftover.
Andre Berto, James Kirkland, Seth Mitchell and Chris Arreola could be added to that list.
Turbo: "who's the latest American hype job"
You: "Jeff Lacy"
Me: "that was over 10 years ago. That's clinging"
I didn't realize that was an agruement.
His loss wasn't even televised on Showtime,. It was shown on ShoExtreme and not enough people knew him for him to be a hype job. Plus Granados is proven to be close to world class and Iman's career is far from over at this point.
Another case of a guy taking an L and the fans burying him and his career. And yet we whine that they don't wanna risk losing.
Mitchell and Berto were hardly 'overhyped.' No one really gave a shit about Mitchell. Berto and Kirkland also have good wins on their resume.
Arreola overhyped? Everyone knew he was a fat slob
You reminded me, Antoine Douglas.
I'm not burying him. I said it from the start that Postol and Matthysse would've whooped his ass. I'm just saying that Imam was overrated when he came onto the scene. I don't give a fuck about how many people knew him. He was overrated when anyone thought he could hang with a guy like Postol. Fucking Pauli Malignaggi, I think it was, was acting like Postol and Crawford were ducking Imam.
American level hypejobs:
All hyped up to be world class fighters, when american level at best.
I really think Spence is the real deal. I like him a lot. Time will tell I guess.
That's a good one. That fight with Kotelnik was embarrassing.
So Brook is still Brit-level to you?
I agree but it's also called a "hype" job for a reason. If they aren't that known they aren't that hyped. Like Broner was known and was crossing over too. He's on TMZ and constantly in the press for good or bad reasons (mostly bad). Now compare that to Imam or Douglas.... were they overrated? Matter of opinion. We're they hyped? Facts, they were hyped by a few but known to very little. Not every prospect that takes an L on American tv is a hype job.
What about that euro level bum Hatton? Don't get me started on that euro trash Lennox Lewis and Arthur Abraham and George Groves and James DeGale and Ricky Burns and that soon to be exposed Carl Frampton....
