in the sense that he was a hard man and an agressor, one can argue that "they don't make fighters like him any longer. certainly not in the capacity that they used to.
but to say that he'd be impervious to harm against a modern LW is wrong. i'd pick floyd mayweather and pernell whitaker to beat him on points without much fuss.
and duran would stretch him out with something similar to the stuff williams put on him.
where do i rank him?
somewhere in the top 100-50 i'd reckon. i have not worked out my p4p list much beyond 10.
