Most Hyped Boxer Ever

Who has been the most over hyped boxer ever? Perhaps it was Naseem Hamed? Tommy Morrison? or Audley Harrison?

Anyone got any more?

Audley's got to be up there. Did he not get a million from the BBC to show his first ten fights after turning pro?

He's on the undercard tonight as well I'm sure.

Audley was and is (and always will be) an Olympic Gold medalist so the hype early on was totally understandable. I think the hype dropped off pretty steadily as he underperformed as a pro.

I'd suggest Tyson. Cleverly feeding opponents he could destroy spectacularly in the early 90s sustained him for over 10 years, even after he started losing all the time.
