No disrespect to any of those boxers,since i am a huge fan of all of them and many of their fights,but i dont think they would cut it with fighters from today.
Thats like saying Ken Shamrock and Royce Gracie are the greatest of all time.
Even Laila Ali (Ali's daughter
.....for you who dont know.) said the same exact thing.When she came out on ESPN she said that now that she sees alot of old fights of her father,that she sees alot of mistakes that he makes in the right and that she dont think he could use that same style today........i was shocked that her own daughter would say this,but i kinda agree with her.
back then it was more about heart and will and today its more about skill.....Fighters have evolved.
But maybe if Ali were from this generation,and trained like this generation, then maybe he would still be the best in the world,so who knows
PS...from all those i went with Sugar Ray Robinson.....this guy was amazing,and fought over 200 times and never KO'd.....even Ali refered to him as "The Master"....
