Is Warrington being over-rated?

For beating a Weight drained Lightweight in Selby (who was probably over-rated himself) and a small Featherweight in Frampton?

I really like him as he is a working class hero and one of the few decent men left, but I think Valdez will beat him.

Funnily enough I think he could beat Valdez.

Oscar himself is very overrated to me although I know people are high on him.

He deserves to be overrated for a bit considering how badly he was underrated prior to these two fights.

I'm actually a reasonably intelligent young man, I just enjoy trolling too much.

In any event, you're doing Warrington a disservice by discrediting the two biggest wins of his career. It doesn't seem fair to me.
Not at all, just questioning whether victories over Selby and Frampton are as good as they seem on face value.

I like Warrington

No problem dude. One could be forgiven for thinking that those are your assertions given the wording.

I don't know a great deal about Warrington outside of his recent heroics to be honest, but I was super impressed with him against Frampton. Even when he was in close with little to no punching room he still managed to get his shots off and find the gaps. I imagine he's an irritating little bastard to fight. Valdez hits a lot harder than both Frampton and Selby, no question, but from what I've seen of him he's not what I would consider a supernatural talent. He's not infallible. If Warrington can impose his will and keep it at close quarters, I think it's a winnable fight for him. A lot would depend on Warrington's punch resistance and whether or not Valdez could command respect early.


Or something...I dunno.

I dont really like him but he's had a great year. I think timing has played a big part in it for him. Selby was obviously struggling with the weight and I do think a couple of years ago Selby would have battered him. Frampton has started to slide and is small for it anyway, but still it's 2 big and convincing wins so fair play to him. Give him a solid chance against a couple of the other top boys so hopefully he can pull it off. I hope he cuts the Leeds against the world bollocks out a bit though because that's why I tend to not like him, maybe I could get behind him if he did that.

He first came to my attention with the Lindsay fight & I've been a big fan of his since so I'm somewhat biased. Most of these guys are drained; you know that making weight is no picnic. He's what I call a winner & I think he'll beat Valdez. Josh needs to use his considerable boxing skills & avoid being dragged into a war.

I mean both Selby and Frampton are career Featherweights. We're talking as if Warrington has dragged these boys down or something. :think

He was underrated because he appeared feather-fisted, had a load of casual football supporters as fans and was with Matchroom.

He's now overrated because he's battered two good fighters as an underdog, and is not with Matchroom.

The circle of life.

It has never been this easy to support a British fighter.
