Floyd Mayweather is a great fighter, but you could probably say he achieved less than many expected.
Really from early on in floyd's career many people said he would be the best p4p fighter in the sport and guess what they were right. Not only that but he has won 7 or 8 world titles in 5 different weightclasses while be 43-0. He has gone onto set the record alongside del la hoya for the biggest boxing ppv fight in history. Mayweather has achieved a hell of a lot more than anyone would have expected back when floyd was fighting at 130, only a hater would suggest otherwise.

How many fighters who started out at 130 went up to 154 and stayed undefeated, whilst fighting at an elite level. You can't name many and the ones you do name will be ATG'S
