Re: how effective would the lighter heavyweights be today?
Against the Klits all of them would be dominated. The like Corbett and Fitz wouldn't even be top light heavies or crusers today, boxing moved on too much
Charles and Walcott fought in a golden era of skill so could outhustle less skilled big men, but against the Klits? No chance.
Dempsey no chance against the Klits, wins some and loses some against the HW top 30
