Off the top of my head Tyson beat up Spinks a former light heavyweight for a title and was beaten by a former cruiser. named Holyfield who stepped up and immediately was one of the best in the division...

Didn't foreman come back in his 40s and win the heavy weight title.
Like I said I dont believe this era is much worse than any era except for the golden era of Ali, Fraiser and Foreman. As I proved above you can pick apart any heavyweight era has stuff like what is happening today.
