    Looking at todays era, I would say these guys are about as close at it gets.

    LW - Tank, Garcia, Haney & Lomachenko
    SMW - Canelo, Plant and Benevidez
    LHW - Beterbiev, Bivol and Ramirez

    While we can't list heavyweights, I do think the current HW division is actually the closest out of all the modern divisions to an actual 4 kings.

    Like I always say, it only counts if they all fight each other and this is just a dream scenario.
