Some of the names put forward are ridiculous. Barrera, Lopez, Curry and Oscar..WTF?

Pacquiao is greater than Barrera by a comfortable distance so I don't know how he gets more metions. It's only that sort of league of fighter that could be considered better. Pernell Whitaker.

Sugar Ray Leonard and RJJ are the only two.

Wow. What an insight to your egotistical world you have just given me. I've watched plenty of boxing thanks, so much so that it annoys the people i live with.

I didn't see it in the terms and conditions for the site that only fleaman is allowed an opinion.

For the record, i cannot stand mayweather but at the same time i can appreciate his skill level and his ability to dispatch someone of Mosley's calibre with consumate ease is extremely impressive.

Hagler, Jones Jr, Whittaker, Leonard, Chavez, Barrera, Ali, Robinson etc were all excellent but in MY opinion, Floyd Mayweather Jr is the best boxer I have ever seen.

I really don't think we have seen the best of him yet either. I got the feeling when I watched the fight at the weekend, that he could have stepped it up another gear or two.
