He's not overrated unless you try and compare him to "Heavyweights" which people need to realize in Rocky's time the HW division was full of Cruiserweights, they just didn't have that division back then and they also didn't have any quality big men, even Joe Louis and Max Baer barely weighed over 205 lbs for a lot of their career, today that's a tiny water cut away from CW. I will say this for Rocky though ........ I'm not sure I'd even give him much of a hope against today's Cruiser Weights. Gassiev, Usyek, Holyfield, prime Haye, James Toney, hmmm nope. If you look at his walk in weight Rocky was really a water cut away from Light Heavy weight, but tbf that just shows how tough he was fighting bigger guys and never losing.
