Boxing undoubtedly evolved from the 1900's to 1930's so when it comes to head to head situations it isnt viable to compare fighters, however by the 1930's when boxing stabilized as a sport and 15 rounds became the rule it becomes viable to compare head to head, I dont see how guys like Billy Conn, Kid Chocolate etc cant be matched with the best of todays crop.
In terms of resume then yes it is viable to compare across all era's, as you can compare how well fighters did relative to their era.
