Post Comparing Boxers from different era's
In reference to the argument going on over on the 4 letter board which I am not allowed to participate in I thought I would post this article

http://www.ringtv.com/blog/2436/compari ... _perilous/

Sorry but in the most respect to those posting if you claim without a doubt that Benny Leonard couldn't hang with Hagler then there is no point in debating with anyone. Give Leonard the trainers of Hagler's time and see what happens or make Hagler go back and train with what was available back then ....

Have Hagler fight 25 times a year and see how he fares .... it's a stupid argument ... sort of like someone saying Pinklon Thomas would beat the Klitschko's just because the 80's were better.

I liken it to the people who say put Boise State in the SEC and see how they would do ... what the don't take into account is that Boise State would then be recruiting like and SEC team and good coaching is good coaching.

Comparing fighters from different era's is a fool's game ...
