I always see all of these comparisons of current fighters to fighters of yesteryear. I think that some comparisons are fair, but too many things have changed to fairly compare certain feats. Things like fighter x has beaten an x amount of world champions. That’s more than what a fighter from 1950 did. Well obviously because there was only one title back then and you weren’t fighting people with trinkets.
Or being a multi division champion. Again, there are tons of belts per weight class so it’s much easier to get a title now, and there are twice as many weight classes so it’s much easier to hold a title in three weight divisions now instead of back in the day.
I’m not saying this to compare old and current fighters. I guess I have just seen a lot lately dumb comparisons. And it’s slow with no boxing so I decided to write a rant.
