Teddy cringed a bit and said there is no comparison between today's and the earlier days of boxing. Atlas specifically said that in the early days, there are less weight divisions and more importantly, there are about 15 to 20 guys that could 'legitimately' beat the champion in every division. Teddy also brought up the difficulty of competing in 15 rounders or even more.

Do you agree with Teddy's assessment that today's fighters are sh*t compared to yesterday's?
this is not a winnable argument

j/k
I think European heavyweights are very good, but American heavyweights are not. Klitschko will destroy Rahman.

There are few good American boxers, but there are lots from other countries:

HW Klitschkos
LHW Calzaghe
SMW Kessler
MW Abraham
LMW Dzinziruk
WW Margarito
LWW Hatton
LW JMM
SB Vasquez
SF Darchinyan
LF Calderon

Top three p4p:

Pacquiao (Phil)
Calzaghe (UK)
Marquez (Mexico)

Lots of good fighters today, just few good AMERICAN fighters!

not sure. i think plenty of today's champions, if properly prepared for a 15 round fight, would beat plenty of yesterday's champions.

i've always maintained that just because boxing is less popular today doesn't mean the fighters are less talented.

Skillwise, fighters are MUCH better. Im certain you could put Ricardo Mayorga in with Ray Robinson and make it a highly competitive fight. The same as hockey, football, etc. Good training methods have spread and skill levels go up.

You're out of your mind if you sincerly believe this.

Oh, and hockey, football, etc. don't have weight classes.
