I think we could positively come to some conclusions about the era AND about Jeffries' body of work and ability if we honestly try to answer those types of questions.



I agree.
I'm not asking for that. I'm asking simply who was better.
If you want to argue the relative worth of the eras, that's a whole nuther topic. And there are many tangents outside of boxing, from economics to sporting culture to pop culture, that bear real relevance.

Again, "rate higher" is a very vague request.
