Re: F**k it, someone had to say it... Past Boxing Era OVERRATED!!
Some fighters from other eras are a little bit overrated. But you underrated them too much. The thing about the old time fighters is that some people do put them on a pedestal by talking as if no one from the modern era could beat them. But the truth is you don't have to be a greater fighter in order to beat an all time great fighter.
All time great fighters could lose to a great fighter (but not greater), in a h2h scenario, and to boxers who just may have had their number.
To spin the situation around and make the modern day fighters invincible as if no old time great could beat them is even worse.
