I think Andre Ward is well on his way, and if Nonito Donaire turns out to be everything he can be, and fight the best guys from 122-130/135 (possibly), he could be the Pacquiao of his era.
There's plenty of young fighters who have tons of ability, we just have to wait and see. Adrien Broner, Gary Russell Jr, Jose Benavidez, Thomas Dulorme, Mikey Garcia, all have tons and tons of ability to be great fighters.
But of fighters who are currently in their prime or early prime that could reach that level, Ward and Donaire come to mind.
