Fighters from the past always get remembered better because most people remember their best performance and then forgets about all the stinkers they had.

Plus i dont think its fair to judge fighters against each other until they have finished their careers because they might go on to achieve more.

A prime Mayweather would be number 1 on that list, maybe today's Mayweather could be number 1 on that list. Prime Pacquiao would be between Oscar, Jones and Whitaker. Today's Pacquiao would probably be 5th behind Trinidad
