That's not true, no boxing expert in their right mind would compare the fighters of today with those of the 70's, the top guy today wouldn't even be ranked in the top 20, boxing has devolved. Likewise the guys of the 70's would easily beat the guys of the 40's and 50's, short bald guys with big bellies, no movement, yet weighing around 180 pounds going up against a 220 pound, fast, monster.

All sports evolve, devolve, so it's very hard to compare one era to another. Marciano for example was undefeated in his era, yet he wouldn't crack the top 10 in 1974.
