Exactly my point.
I don't think that anyone was saying that Kessler ever was a "spectacular" fighter, but he's had some solid wins in his last few years in the sport. He's not overrated because not all that many people rate him all that high. Kessler never touched any P4P lists. Regardless, he was the #2 guy in the division in all views and Calzaghe beat him convincingly. Had people had Kessler on their P4P lists or had a ton of people picked him over Calzaghe perhaps one could argue he was being overrated. Talking about it after the fact however means nothing.
But some people are saying he should be number 1 p4p,top 3 p4p,all time great,And he would beat this guy and that guy,come-on.
There are fighters out there out there who are far more accomplished and deserved to be ranked higher.
Calzage needs to fight elite fighters like Winky Wright,Hopkins,Pavlik and other fighters who are dangerous like Chad Dawson and Glen Johnson.
Don`t get me wrong i think Calzage is a great fighter and hes number 6 on my p4p list.But i think some people are going overboard with his win over Kessler
cause many people never thought much of Kessler and don`t think Kessler`s previous opposition was all that.
