Why isn't Floyd on that list? The self-proclaimed greatest ATG who himself boasted that he's better than Ali & SRL. This is the same guy who ducked Margarito, Cotto & Pacquiao who's 'retired' twice to afford competition in & around the WW. When was the last time Floyd faced someone who was physically bigger than him (& I don't mean heavier)?

History will view Floyd's career as a case of could've, would've & should've & despite all his sycophantic apologist fans claiming him to be the p4p king of mythical ABC match-ups & PPV buys, he'll be lucky if he scraps in the ATG top 20

Manny Pacquiao takes the nod.

It is still same old pac, he has not improved at all or very little at best.

It is all about his southpaw stance, great speed, reflexes and nice power. Guy is not skilled at all..

Pacquiao defo.

I think guys like Martinez and Dawson are slightly underrated.

Pirog doesnt seem to fight very often, but i remeber how people were riding his dick after he beat Jacobs.

Khan is doing everything right at the moment, fighting the best in the division and imrpvoes in each fight, hes neither under or overrated.

Bute should be on that list, Ward may fight at home as well, but hes had the better opposition (after he faces Froch)
