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?

also the essence of being a man, I know it sounds a bit meh, but it's the fact that then, anybody fought anybody and why? because they wanted respect, you had fighters like Hagler taking on all comers just for that bit of respect, and sure politics got in the way but still it didn't stop him fighting anyone and everyone. You had the likes of Aaron Pryor forever chasing Leonard etc etc. Know though you only see this in some fighters, but the up and comers you see with this attitude are all way too far off and there doing if for the money not the actual glory.

Then again the ppv rate has been bigger than ever, but that's only when certain fighters fight
