Skillwise he might be the greatest. I can't think of a more technicaly sound boxer.If Floyd had Tommy Hearns power at welterweight people would be begging him to retire.

Floyd has the talent to have possibly been in the top 10 greatest fighters of all time... however he hasn't fought enough and he has avoided fighting the meaningful, defining fights when they mattered. He had a great opportunity over the last 5 years to really cement his legacy as an ATG, but instead he chose to retire and than wait untl guys start to decline before he fights them. If he had stayed unretired and unified the welterweight titles against Cotto, Margarito and Williams, then fought and beat Pacquiao... I would be calling him one of the greatest of all time

Floyd has just as good timing in picking when to fight certain boxers as he does in the ring so no.

Answer is eaSY no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HE IS NOT IN THE TOP 100

Floyd has the natural God given skills to be a great boxer but was cursed by being given the cojones of a gnat

See, now you're just trolling...

He's closer to #1 than he is #100, that's for sure.

Probably. He's in the top ten for sure. He ducked the following fighters, and they are listed in no particular order. Mind you, he could have fought these guys at the time they were the top challengers to his belt and other belts, but didn't.

Manny Pacquiao
Antonio Margarito
Paul Williams
Joshua Clottey

Now, he very well could have beat all of them, but the fact is that he didn't fight them for one reason or another. Some people are going to say that he fought for the linear belt, which was more important at the time. I call bull****. Even though Carlos Baldomir was the champ at the time, Antonio Margarito was a lot more dangerous in my opinion and would have made for a better fight.
Then you have the Floyd boys claiming that he fought Gatti, Baldomir, and Judah during the time the other guys I mentioned were at the top.

In my opinion, the guys he avoided could have gone three and "0" against Gatti, Baldomir, and Judah. And, I think it is safe to say that Gatti, Baldomir, and Judah could have very well gone 0-4 against the other four guys.

Just my opinion.
did you mention Clottey?

That would be too easy Mayweather is NOT a FIGHTER!!!!! All he is is an incredibly talented street punk who enjoys beating on women.
Just imagine the ATG he could have been had his cojones matched his God Given talents
