It is tough to compare different eras due to different politics, promoters, environments and most importantly revenue.

Their is too much money in sports these days. A fighter can make millions fighting a no hoper. Why risk it?

I guess it depends on how you define credible. I wasn't around to give each fighter the eye test but let's assume that out of 100 opponents there were:

20 so-called bums
20 journeymen
20 fringe contenders
20 contenders/good fighters
10 champions/great fighters
10 HOF fighters

Even if you knock everyone down a level, that still leaves a careers' worth of good opponents and they fought way more often, with smaller gloves.

Last but not least, Sugar Ray Robinson's height and reach is on par with today's top welterweights and he defeated plenty of fellow hall of famers.

You can add the luxury of only fighting once or twice a year to that list. At that rate you could have only 10-20 fights in a decade. Sugar Ray Robinson had over 100 fights in that time.
