Default What do you consider to be the best decade for each weight class?

Would be curious to see some lists, particularly those involving the original eight divisions, but the additions, too.

Which decade was the best for each division in your opinion?

Dont really know about indiividual decades, but i could do eras i think??-

For the classic 8-

HW- Ali's second era, so thats 70's

LHW - Charles' era - (is it the 40s??)

MW - Robinson's (50's)

WW - Leonard's - (80s)

LW - I like Ike Williams' era, but i think it would be Benny Leonard's

FW - I really liked the Barrera era, but they just never all fought each other at the weight, if he, Morales, Pacquiao, Marquez, In Jin Chi, Scott Harrison and Manuel Medina wouldve all met (or the majority, especially the first 4 best would have), i think it would be number 1, so im not sure which era gets this.

BW - Not too sure, maybe Olivares' era??

FLW - Same again, not that sure, is it Wilde's here??

Middleweight: 40s or 60s. I like the latter myself.


Bantam: 70s probably. Rockabye, the Z-Men.
