Perhaps.

Can't think of a fighter head and sholders above that could be 3rd for that decade. There were good fighters but none that stood out from the rest. After the Top 2.

does Duran make an entrance? his best was at LW but his WW fights were great. He smashed Palomino at his own game and undefeated Ray Leonard. That's gotta mean something. The Duran that beat SRL could have beat a lot of good boxers.

That said,

00' has Mosley, Mayweather and Pacquiao. pretty good IMO. one of the best yet? considering Cotto and Margarito are the next 2

The SRL/Hearns/duran combo is probably the best though.

Don't think so.

Duran was only at WW until 81 he moved up after his loss to Leonard and never returned his only win at WW in the 80's was against Leonard which of course was a great win but can he be ranked in the Top 3 WW's of that decade with 1 win there and 1 year of fighting there? Don't think so.

I don't know I don't think Mayweather or Pacquaio has strong WW resume's. I guess Shane could be there he has some great wins.

I'd say Margarito would be in the Top 3 for the last era after all he was there for a long time dominating and was considered the best WW or one of the best for mutiple years.

I hate to bring this up in BH, but Margarito was caught cheating. That should automatically put him out of the question. That's me at least.

Mayweather and Pacquiao have decent WW resumes. It just depends on who you are comparing them too. SRL obviously has a superb WW resume. but not many can bump a WW resume like him.

I thought Duran vs Palomino was a WW fight?

Thats to bad he didn't stay their longer, he was a monster. Very hard to bet against a version of Duran like that.

But it happened in the 70's.
