Question Due to advancements in science, do you think the fighters of yesteryear could compete

... in terms of being a dish?

Think about it.

Ray Robinson never had the opportunity to effectively moisturise or take advantage in the latest developments in teeth whitening and so on.

I still think Ali was the #1 greatest heavyweight dish, but Wlad and Haye would benefit from hair loss therapy today (or Rogaine, advertised by Asian Sensation)... Ali was going bald in his late thirties.


What do others think?

You have also to consider the advancements in modern photography. Whether Jack Johnson, for instance, was a dish is undecidale on the basis of the evidence:

If this man below was fighting with today's modern exfoliating facial creams he would have been a top 10 p4p pounder today.

Just by rating the different 'Sugars' we can see that the hayday of the aesthetic boxer was the eighties.
It is proven that Leonard>Robinson>Mosley in a scientific swoon test.

a bald wlad....

dlh definitely wouldnt have been as popular if he was losing his hair in his early twenties...hes managed to cover up the baldness though

most boxers would be as hairy as a young andre agassi if they didnt shave their bodies:
