Yeah but Floyd's test results are kept by USADA and they could compare his blood test with the others each time out. So you think Manny is doing better testing than Floyd?

he gets overrated by his fans. and people in general think he's better then he really is. But to answer the question, he would be able to compete at a high level in any era, just as Pacquiao would.

Floyd isnt overated - he is the best of his generation.

Is he overhyped - yes a little , but that is the world we now live in.
See, they say he's the best of his generation BUT who did he really ever fight who was in their prime? In my opinion Corrales was the most notable name he defeated.

Just a few names to throw at ya.

Hatton - Fought at 147, not Hatton's natural weight class

ODLH - in my opinion, well past his prime and still managed to give Floyd a tough fight

Arturo Gatti - Past his prime, but In my opinion was never a great fighter. Only known for his "brawls" with Micky Ward.

Zab Judah - Mayweather beat him, but Zab gave Floyd another tough fight.

Castillo - Got beat in Rematch, but 1st fight was extremely close.

Ortiz - Got sucker punched by Floyd, but Ortiz deserved it (in a way).

Mosley - a 38/39 year old who nearly put Floyd on his a**

I am not a hater, but I dislike when Floyd says "I am the best ever" and starts comparing himself to Ali.

Just to add, I think Pacquiao's resume is a little stronger than Floyd's, but no doubt he's overrated too. But I respect Pacquiao because he doesn't come out saying he's the best and comparing himself to Ali.

I never understood this crap and the illusion of weight with Hatton and Floyd. If a man fights in a division that is 140 but shows up to fights at 149, what is his "best weight"?

Tell Hatton to show up at 140 on Fight-Night and then we'll talk. But when he shows up to a fight at 149+ like most of the rest of the JrWW/140 pound fighters... and his opponent, Floyd, tends to show up at 149 for his fights (in the WW division), how is that an advantage when they are around the same weight if not the same weight?


The only thing they did was get rid of the circus that is the "making weight" before you rehydrate.

So in reality, it was "safer" and "Better" for both of them to not have to drain down to a weight they wouldn't be fighting at by fight-time.

other than that...he does overrate himself.


Overall, I think he was an exceptional LW. Could have stood his ground with the best. But other divisions, specificlly 147+...not so much.

Floyd is a shit-talker. Get the sand out yer vaginer!


Floyd is overated by his fans, but underrated by his hater. All in all, he is pretty fairly judged. And I don'r think a lot of people beat him.


Hearns, Leonard, possibly P, and possibly Duran. Tito is overrated.

When Hatton facing a 140 fighters, he has a big weight advantage. But not @ 147.

Only the worst of FMJ haters would say the man is overrated. I mean, come the **** on. If you can say FMJ is overrated, and SRR and SRL aren't w/o blinking an eye, then its not even worth having a boxing conversation with you.

Default Re: Floyd Mayweather - Overrated and over hyped?

he is the best of his era....people love to hate em, some people overhype him and other underrate him because of his personality

Now lets time travel back to the Golden Age and his best weights which are 130-140.

Champions at the time....Uncle Roger, Julio Cesar Chavez, Aaron Pryor, Camacho, Livingston Bramble, Azumah Nelson, Vinny Pazienza, Greg Haugen, Pernell Whitaker, Edwin Rosario, Brian Mitchell, Rock Lockridge


Mayweather is an all-time great he would have had success and been a champion in any era...Only guy I'd favor over him is Whitaker he beats the the rest...its not fair to compare him to welterweights because even though he has been a champion their and higher he isnt at his best or at his prime age or weight but below hard to argue he is a beast
