Default Re: Fighters Floyd Mayweather must fight to get 15-20 ATG status.

McGrain did a Top 100 P4P list on the classic forum. This is what the Top 20 looks like:

01 – Sam Langford
02 – Harry Greb
03 – Sugar Ray Robinson
04 – Henry Armstrong
05 – Bob Fitzsimmons
06 – Ezzard Charles
07 – Benny Leonard
08 – Muhammad Ali
---------------------------------------
09 – Willie Pep
10 – Joe Louis
11 – Roberto Duran
12 – Joe Gans
13 – Packey McFarland
14 – Archie Moore
15 – Sugar Ray Leonard
16 – Mickey Walker
-------------------------------------------
17 – Barney Ross
18 – Terry McGovern
19 – Tony Canzoneri
20 – Pernell Whitaker

There's no way Mayweather can break into the top 17.

With wins over:
A recovered Manny Pacquiao
Canelo-Trout Winner
Golovkin maybe AT 160lbs (Mayweather will be too late for Martinez)
Robert Guerrero
Someone very good

Champion for around 17 years it would be
+
ATG Skills set - get's hit the least
+
W Juan Manuel Marquez
W Jose Luis Castillo
W Miguel Cotto
W Diego Corrales
W Genaro Hernandez
W Ricky Hatton
+
Reputation of being the Greatest 130lber of All Time

Although Whitaker is better than Mayweather, Mayweather would have had a better legacy than Whitaker.

Mayweather would be at least on par with Canzoneri, maybe just behind Barney Ross.
