Default Fantasy era

If you could construct an era in a certain division, who would you choose?

Let's stick to four boxers.

Mine is, under a 1960s rule set:

160lbs: Hagler, Tiger, Valdez and Toney.

Would be very interesting!

One of my all-time most wanted.

Edited out Cerdan for Toney. Quite a mix of styles in that bunch (especially as Hagler would probably box n' move against Tiger and Valdez) and all iron chinned.

Instictivly I'd favor Hagler, but I think Toney comes out on top.

Whitaker beats the other three. Armstrong beats Chavez and Duran.

Agreed...as good as Cerdan was...he would have been the weak link in that particular group!

Also agree Hagler would choose the boxing route with Valdez and Tiger...

Valdez/Tiger would have been an all timer! Can't really make a conclusive pick...I am convinced though that Valdez can either live with or beat any aggressive styled middleweight! Have always thought highly of Tiger, but recently (2-3 years) have really appreciated what Valdez could do...He could absolutely wreck anyone who went to him imo.

Yeah, I think the same. For every time you watch Valdez smashing Briscoe you could turn it over to Tiger dominating Fernandez to put you back at square one.
