Those are ok if you are talking specifically about this era. That's about right then. But if we are talking in general, there is no way in hell those guys you mention are anything close to being B- to A- level fighters.

The best guy there, arguably Byrd, Mercer (in his prime) or Haye aren't anything over B- to B level fighters. They just aren't.

Great HW's, ie the very best, Ali, Lewis, Holmes, Foreman, Holyfield, Louis etc are A+ while that second tier, or A, of Wlad, Patterson, Tunney, Walcott, etc type guys. Then you'd still have A- guys Norton, Bowe, Baer, Corbett and it's quite some while before you'd get down to the Chris Byrd and David Haye's, or even guys like Ruslan Chagaev. They are not B+ heavyweights historically. Not even close.

I was grading on a non ATG Scale.
Forgot to clarify.

Lewis=ATG.
After that
it's 'world class' which I consider an A.
