Floyd would be last on that list aside from Jack Johnson, and yet he's 3rd on the poll behind Robinson and Ali, and ahead of Henry Armstrong and Sam Langford among others. ****in' General Forum.

I think its Ali here is his resume is ridiculous

Moore
Liston (x2)
Patterson (x2)
Quarry
Norton (x2)
Fraizer (x2)
Foreman
Shavers
Foster

Also keep in mind that 2 years of his prime were wasted when he did not have a license, add his fan pleasing style and charisma and I think you have the greatest boxer of all time. But I will not argue with someone who has Ray Robinson as the GOAT

I think that the Wisp should be on the list as he is clearly ahead of Floyd, Chavez, SRL. His record is just amazing and he was still a great fighter even after the plain crash. I think that SRR is clearly the goat. For all the people that prefer Greb I just can not see how can you claim that of a fighter you never saw an actual fight.

One of the reasons why you'll see more people rating SRR and Armstrong above Greb, but when it comes to resume, there ain't no one better.

Yeah I know I guess that some people also put him as the GOAT just to pretend that they know a lot about boxing history . On the other hand resume is the most objective way to rate fighters so I don't know what to make out of this situation. I personally can not vote fighter I've never seen fight...

Whitaker, Hopkins, Pacquiao, Holyfield, Roy Jones would all have more of a claim than him of the modern day fighters

I choose SRR.

Moore was old, Patterson was on the way out as well. The first Liston fight is legit, the second Liston fight was super shady.

He only beat Norton once, and it was a super close fight that could have gone Nortons way. Their third fight is one of the most blatant robberies in the sport. Norton had Ali's number.

As for the second Frazier fight... He cheated in the second Frazier fight, holding behind the head throughout the entire match. If the ref allows it, go for it; but I can't consider it a huge accomplishment.

He has a few really good wins. He is one of the best heavyweights of all time, most certainly not THE best heavyweight. In no way shape or form should he be considered better than the real contenders for the top P4P spot...

The problem is people are emotionally attached to Ali, they are invested in his legend. And that is what it is, a myth. Most people have mingled fact and fantasy with Ali.

I hate to say it, but Ali is so ****ing overrated it hurts...

That the op actually chose to get Floyd Mayweather in this line-up is a slap in the face to all the all time greats and hard working boxers that fought the best of the era.

Not gonna vote in this joke poll
