    The list of fighters you mentioned were all very good fighters, but its not a foregone conclusion that they would beat the current crop of elite welters in Boots, Spence and Crawford. I think there's a good chance that the current crop beats bazooka, Shane and maybe even Forrest. The hardest challenge being De La Hoya and Vernon.

    He'd be competitive against all of them, but loses clearly to Bud and Ennis, and beats Spence. Ortiz and the rest.

    Spence made to order for Tito...

    Crawford and Ennis probably trouble him, possibly beat.

    Everyone else is a deadman.

    Felix Trinidad vs Vergil Ortiz jr would have been one helluva explosive fight.

    Actually Tito is tailormade for Spence. His come forward and stand in front of you style would not work for him. Tito has defense and relies way too much on his power. Spence, Crawford and possibly Boots has the best chance out of all the WW to beat Tito.

    Based on Styles? Spence and Ennis would have the best chance. Crawford is too small and he isn't as defensive as Oscar and Pernell. Tito would've stopped Crawford in the midrounds. Spence and Ennis would be 50/50 fights due to size and power.
