He is an ATG. There's just great variance as to where people put him.

I, personally, have him Top 20*** if he beats another top WW (Ghost) and then Canelo (a top SWW). Some people find that very hard to understand and some refute it because Floyd's black and their pinoy hero is sleeping on the job. Either way, look at this fag

Butthurt pacturds are really reaching nowadays

Guess what? Floyd's a megastar, ATG. Pacturds... are sleeping. And will be lucky to finish top 150 ATG. LUCKY

Funny you say that, cos you are one of the biggest protractors of the Cotto Pac fight and that was ONLY 2lbs Dumb ass

He didn't move in weight for legacy. He moved up in weight so that he could get big money ppv fights with DLH and Mosley. If the big money fights were at 135 then he would have stayed there until he couldn't make weight anymore.

Mayweather would tell you himself. Legacy don't pay the bills. And if he developed Parkinsons like Ali legacy isn't going to take care of him.

He made not have a "Duran" or a "Hearns" but he got Benitezs and haglers. He accomplished feats that SRL, Duran did. That is to fight champions in his weight class and fight bigger champions in their weight class. So why shouldn't he belong? BTW i have Floyd and Pac above Hagler and Benitez. What Hagler did wasn't more amazing than what Floyd and Pac did.

I am not trying to hate/discredit Hagler but Who did Hagler beat that made him so special? His biggest wins were against blown ups of Hearns and Duran. and Benitez's have a lot of losses against people he shouldn't have. So i don't know why you think so highly of him. Hagler got a good resume but his wins are = of Oscar's. Haglers beating up smaller guys = Floyd beating Old Shane/out of prime Oscar who are both BIGGER than Floyd. The out of prime scalps that Floyd had at least they have a size advantage but where is Duran's and Hearn's advantages against Hagler???

Floyd deserves credit for his longevity. THere are many AtGs who reach his age and just completely falls apart and loses to scrubs. Floyd is still fighting Elite prime guys. Whether if you think his opponents are bums or not they are still champions and should be respected to that fact.

People always bring up the Duran and SRL crap but they fail to see the amazing feats that Floyd has accomplished, while Duran, SRL, Hagler couldn't. Like he never lost against elite competition and never even been put on his ass. While other ATGS get ko and shorter primes, and loses to lesser guys.

Being amazing for a long time > being amazing for a short time. Being consistent is what ATGs do.

A good/solid resume but nothing over impressive that makes my eyes pop out.Again solid opponents but not many Huge prime threats if any at all.H.O.F.?.....Absolutely, G.O.A.T?........Not even close not even top 10 actually.Everybody's entitled to their own opinion but calling him the best ever is pretty premature especially while active considering the long history of great fighters,if you do your a clearly a fan boi simple as that no argument.Sure floyd is one of few to accomplish certain things like staying undefeated with solid overall fighters but Robinson/Armstrong/Ali,pep,Joe louis ect are immediately in G.O.A.T time conversation for a reason.They fought everybody no excuses, & they accomplished pretty great feats themselves along with many others.Not going to blame floyd for ducking a lot of fighters but it's pretty obvious his career is carefully managed & you'd be stupid argue other wise.Again good fighter easily 1st ballot H.O.F but lets stop the dumb best ever or unbeatable BS he's clearly not.
