Floyd is the greatest of this era.. how? Pacquiao has already proven he's greater, a long time ago.

Best is debatable, since Floyd never fought the other 'best of this era.'
sure. were not talking about "greatness" were talking about overrated in terms of TALENT.

Mayweather's style could give anyone in history hell even in losing. You can't beat that kind of style easily unless it's a lucky one punch KO.

TS you can discredit any fighters wins. You should be prepare to provide who you think has a legit career without any flaws when you criticize someone career. It is easy to say or he was too old, too green, too small. But judging of ur new account and few post, u are prolly just a troll.

Well I'm obviously not a pactard because I don't rate Pacquiao as the best either of this era either. Both Mayweather and Pacquiao will probably go down in history as "greats" but, do I think they deserve that spot? Not really. I think a great can only be described as someone who fought the best! I don't think either have fought the very, very best to be honest.

Also is very disgusting to see a key board warrior question one of the best fighters in history who has been fighting guys all over the world since he was 16 in amatuers, completing in Olympics and in ELite level.

Did he go up, stay in that division, and face the very best from that division? No! He moved up, won a title then left. If your the best, you stay in that division and clear it up until you're ready to dominate the next division.

TS should understand that boxing will always have stars match with someone too young or too old, or too big or too small. Excuses is easy to find but i don't see how Floyd can be criticize for fighting someone any size for he have fought people bigger moving up in weight not to mention he have fought old as well as young, prime and out of prime. One thing is for sure... he fought guys WHEN THEY WERE RELAVANT TO THE SPORT. He hasn't fight a journyman since WHEN?

I hate him since the Ortiz sucker punch but was a fan before. He is overhyped. A washed up DLH almost beat him. Yea, he dominated a totally washed up Mosley, sucker punched his way to a win over Ortiz and ko'd hatton and beat up the smaller marquez. But none of those fights are very legit all things considered when talkin about ATG. He hasn't really had any career defining fights, at least not in YEARS.
Put him in the late 90s and mosley and oscar would tear his head off.

Floyd beat DLH 8-4 even 9-3 is acceptable. How is that equals Oscar almost beat him? Not to mention he went up to Oscar's weight who showed up 160+, small ring and big gloves? He was basically a WW fighting a Middle weight. And shane mosley and Oscar would never beat Floyd at any point.

Only idiots care about HYPE, and it could well be claimed even bigger idiots would consider FMJ as being over rated. As someone said that style of his would give nightmares to any fighter between 135 and 154 from any era. Win, lose, or draw.

its hard to overrate an all-time great....at his best weights 130-140 only a handful IMO(Duran, Whitaker, Pryor, Armstrong, Chavez) have a shot but the rest he beats....too big and strong and skilled for Canzoneri, Ross, and Arguello Ike Williams gives him a run for his money but dude is a G all-time

I think if he shut his mouth out of the ring he'd be a truly class act. the hype is always gonna be there though when he constantly plays up to the cameras and gives the world's press and media some soundbites...

In the ring He is a superb fighter, has very fast hands, lots of accuracy and power behind his punches, very rarely does he get hit or knocked down.

The only fighter in the same league as him is the pac-man and you could then argue if that fight was made the winner should rightfully be called the best P4P fighter in the world and history of boxing at their weight class.
