Anyone who thinks Mayweather is top 10 based on accomplishments knows absolutely nothing about boxing tbh.

Atg ranking are an opinion and nothing more, many people have never even seen more than 1 fight from those guys from 50 and 60's.
It would be easier to get some agreement if the ATG was changed to GOF, greatest of generation. Say 25 year sections.
I have seen Floyd and Pac and Cotto and Oscar fight 15 times each. How many have seen 15 of willie pep or Ali? Maybe if your 60 years old.
I started watching boxing in 1990 and in that time there are only a few guys that I have seen that come close to Floyd: Whitaker,Oscar,Wright,Hopkins,Tyson
All for different reasons of course but greatness does not happen every day.

Marg isnt better than castillo,corrales,hernandez,hatton, dlh or judah. So how would a victory over him be number 1? what has marg accomplished to make it so?

Should have taken on Pac and Martinez while they were on top of their game (2009-2011). That could of helped him a lot. Fighting Guerrero and Ortiz does nothing. Canelo might be a good name on his resume too if Canelo does great things later in his career. Other than that, Floyd's greatest win is ODLH, taking into account Floyd moved up to fight at a weight he had never fought before.
