Thanks for the vid... Brilliant!

I think the 70's just pips the 50's

Many say the 70's was the best era for Heavies only..
I always take the likes of Sanchez, Monzon, Duran, Locche etc into account..

cool video, awesome picture.

No offense, but this is a pretty dumb poll. Actually, it's more insane than dumb. Why would you go back to the 30s but not the 20s? Okay, so there weren't many black fighters during the 20s. Still a beastly era and you have to include it in any poll like this.

I think each and every era has had it's own set of pro's and con's.

If I had to pick an absolute favorite, it would most likely be the 70's, 80's, or the mid 50's to late 60's.

I'm only 23, I haven't seen much of anything past '52 or '53 aside from most of Joe Louis' fights. So I'm really not able to comment on much prior to that.

I will say this though ; looking back, I think the 90's is a highly underrated era.

I really didn't realize how lucky I was to be able to watch it until around 2005.

Is that how it goes with every era? You don't realize how special it was until years after?

Real talk, right?

For me, during the 90's ; I was watching the era unfold, but I was also very focused on the 70's and 80's.

I got into this sport when I was close to 11, back in '95.

And I spent a lot of time watching the 70's and 80's guys do their thing. Leonard, Duran, Hearns, Hagler, Pryor, Arguello, Benitez, Gomez, Sanchez, Frazier, Ali, etc.....

And I was blown away by how good those guys were.

Meanwhile, I had some guys competing in my first "live" era, that I didn't really take much note of until after the fact.

Crazy how things work out.
