Default If this decades welters were to face off against those of the eighties

Which group of fighters would come out on top? ( most wins)
(considering everyone is in their prime, although some fighters prime is always debatable of course!) these are my pics for best matchups

Mayweather vs SRL

Pacquaio vs Duran

Mosley vs SRL

Oscar vs SRL

Margo vs Duran

Cotto vs Duran

Pw vs Tommy Hearns

Trinidad vs Duran

Yeah, but to be fair, we're talking about the elite of the elite vs a pretty good WW era. It's like asking who wins between a lion and a bobcat.

Because...bobcats are really wicked, just not...hell I don't know how I came up with that. Sounded right when I said it to myself before posting it.

I see the '80s fighters winning every fight. It's not really a fair matchup. You can make the argument that all three '80s fighters are top 10 H2H in their prime.

I actually think that some of those fights you listed, would make fairly decent match-ups. Although I am more partial to the 80's group from a legacy standpoint, I don't think that the margins are all that wide in a head to head sense.

We're just pitching two Welterweight era's off against eachother. If Duran, Hearns, and Leonard were all from different era's...then it would be unfair. As things stand, those guys were just that bloody good.

Well, Addie, it's not just one era vs another. It's the Duran, Hearns and Leonard era! There's no "just" about it.
