It's sad that they died early, but some people do overrate them after death.
For Example, Imagine if Tyson died/murdered just before the Buster fight, alot of people would consider him the best heavyweight ever, ever (Though some still do now).
Because all their memory of Tyson would be domiating KO's and not the fights where he got outworked by physically bigger men because they would have never of happened..
Same could be applied here, Maybe if things were different and Salvador didn't die and went on and found that his weakness was slick southpaws and had loadsa losses to fighters due to the style, he would be remember as the great fighter who was crap against Southpaws.
