Default Who's considered elite (A-A+) from 140-160?

I'd like to get any opinions on who the elite fighters are from 140 to 160...It seems this Era of boxing is deemed..subpar to say the least, no one seems to be a credible opponent these days so who are the top tier fighters in these weights?

It's not really an argument.

To be A list, you have to at minimum face and beat A list opponents.

All you have to ask is, who on your list hasn't meet this minimum requirement.

Thurman is not Clottey or Canelo, if you fight him, he will not play the limp dick4hire game, it will be hard thrusting...He will flatten the old hasbeens, no $ can buy Thurman

Try some shit and you will be exposed...Its okay when both parties agree to play limp dick, Thurman made it clear, no games fight him or retire
