Hearns is so bloody overrated. He would have been Corrales'd if he faced Mayweather.

Stop it. The only man beating Hearns from the recent era at welter is no one, not even the man in his avatar.

Fighters in the old days didn't have the nutrition and modern training techniques to deal with the fighters of this specific era.

Look at this medieval shoulder roll defence, he is getting tagged way too much for my liking. Mayweather would treat this guy like a simple sparring session at the local Mayweather Gym in Las Vegas.

The overall sluggishness of this fighter is appalling. Poor Footwork, No Direction, Erratic Head Movement, Poor Punching Technique (Punching the air everywhere) etc. and the list goes on.

Way too slow to deal with a modern Pacquiao vicious onslaught. Looks kinds soft as well. Modern Boxers would expose all these kinds of holes and systematically shut him down.

Brandon Rios would be ashamed of this person.

The thing is, if you wasn't there to watch those guys in real time and see exactly what they were made of then you really can't appreciate the depth of thier skills or heart. I'm referring to fighters from Ali and up. Actually, Ali started the modern era of boxing. He brought a brand new boxing game to town. Nobody had seen anything like it. It was the true changing of the old to new. The only fighter that has achieved close to that is Mayweather. Pac is not a true innovator, he is a fad. He's good but I don't see any fighters trying to immulate his style.

Hagler beat Hears and he didn't have half of the skillset Mayweather does.
hagler came to hearns and got tore up before catching tommy with a monster blow, u think mayweather would replicate that? Tommy would destroy mayweather from 147-154. tommy would beat any major welterweight and 154lb fighter by KO from the 90s era through to this era.

Only thing lacking with past era was PED's and the science of training and health. If SRR had a Alex Aliza he would destroy any fighter in any weight class in the past 100 years. Don't be fooled by athletes of today. The punishment fighters took back then was amazing. The punch that KO'ed Manny would just bounce off the chin of past greats.

Yeah, you can tell his influence just by looking at the way his charge, the face first brawler known as Pernell Whitaker, charged headlong at opponents without giving any thought to the concept of dodging any punches that were coming his way.

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.
