One of the best decades in hw history.
I cant see the decade being ranked that highly in skill. Head to head aabilitiy maybe but not skill. Lewis, Holyfield, Tyson and bowe were great fighters but look at some of the other decades. With guys like Morre, Charles, Walcott, Bivins, conn, Tunney, Langford, Gibbons, Walker, etc. Most of those guys are far more skilful than the 90s big 4. Not to mention some of the lesser 90s contenders like Foreman, Ruddock, Mercer, etc. Actually, when you think that George foreman was probably one of the most skilled fighters of the decade, it is extremely hard to believe that this was the second best decade in history.

If course head to head might be a different story.
