He got out of the sport with lots of money, lots of titles and undefeated.
What more could you want?

To have beaten Steve Collins for the proper title? To have fought Ottke? To have fought Nigel Benn? To come out of retirement at 40 to fight Andre Ward and Carl Froch?
Exactly mate, he got out of the sport at the right time and achieved more than anyone else did in his generation.

If he was still fighting now he probably would have lost imo, not because he isn't a great fighter but because he was past his peak. He kept on top til 37 ffs, what more do you want.
