When u compare the landscape of boxing, from this point in time of stars/potential stars, compared to 2003 roster from each division, would you say (talent-wise) boxing has progressed or declined?

I personally think its declined mainly because pre this era of boxing you had fighters that could box. The fundamentals weren't as big a joke they are today and even if the brawlers were in there they weren't just punchers with padded out records protected by there promoters. They could actually apply pressure, had head movement etc etc

This.

The craft is losing respect no matter what style fighters have today...
