From the footage I've seen, I'd go with the 80s and 90s. I really haven't seen enough of the 60s and 70s.

LOL @ whoever voted for the current era

Have to go pre-60s.

1) boxing was a top 2 sport in the us. Everybody wanted to box. More competition, logically. Right now boxing is barely a top 10 sport in the us. So the majority of our best athletes are looking elsewhere.
2) boxers fought much much more. There's no better way to improve at anything than to actually do it at the highest level. Training isnt fighting.
3) only one belt, meaning one champ, meaning you had to fight the man to be the man. Nowadays we have 4-6 guys at every division with a belt, which waters down competition even further
4) less weight classes, stuffing more comp into each of the divisions.

If you're talking about the 90s, you may want to include some weights below 130. There's a certain small Mexican badass that should be high on the top of your list.

You don't have to be old to recognize the era.

8 weight classes
1 title per weight class
More fighters
Fighters fought frequently
Same day weigh in
15 rounds fights
etc

Not to say that back in the day fighters were actually better but got to take in consideration all of that

those crooked asses make bob arum and don king look honest.


golden era of boxing = fraudulent era of boxing.
Mob controlled. So what you call Arum, King, Suliman, etc

80's.

Had a great great Welterweight era, as well as a great Light Heavyweight era. A very deep Featherweight and Lightweight era as well.

Leonard
Whitaker
Chavez
Hearns
Hagler
Sanchez
Spinks
Holmes
Tyson
Holyfield
McCallum
Arguello
Pedroza
Nelson
Fenech
Gomez
Benitez
Camacho
Rosario
Lora
Zaragoza
Qawi
Saad Muhammad
Curry
ect, ect..

Duran was at his greatest in the 70's, but he deserves a mention for his great victory over Leonard, and great performances against the likes of Moore and Barkley.

so imagine if you take all the gyms today where people go work out/lift weights/do classes and erase them from the face of the earth. then you take half of them and put them back, only as real boxing gyms and boxing was as popular work talk as profootball is now.

do you think the talent level would be superior to the current situation, the same, or inferior?

The 60's-70's had great Heavyweights and some decent LW'S. The late 70's-80's was obviously packed with Welterweights (fab four) and a barrage of LHW Greats. (175), throw in Prime Tyson and Holmes.
2002ish to Current Era got the Floyd-Manny-k2-JMM-Ward-Calzaghe-(Still Hopkins) among others.

I will like a boxing historian to break down 130-HW from the 'black and white days' as well. But I feel the 90's era overall was the most talent rich in boxing history.
you mean chavez Sr?????
