My opinion of Freddy Brown & Ray Arcel is their at the highest pinnacle of trainers, corner work (ability to take care of a fighter and break down the opponent)!!! They were the type of trainers that fighters layed it all on the line for!!! Ray.
So let me get this straight... knowledgeable people compare conjecture and average people use indisputable fact? You realize that that is NOT something an intelligent person would say right?

You can compare any fighter from any era, you just have to make sure you temper your expectations to the era. If you compare resumes straight up, guys from pre-1960 are going to get a big boost because they fought so much more (for the most part) so they beat more quality guys. I personally don't think there's much difference in fighters since 1920 (and quite few before then could hold up too).
