Default floyd and "TBE"

Not a floyd bashing thread as I do appreciate him and im also a big fan. But isn't him calling him self "tbe" a bit of a stretch?

He has impressive names but since he signed the sho time deal his opponents have not been TBE worthy. I understand he is running out of opponents as is pac with TR but there are better fights to be made then maidana, khan, Guerrero, ortiz. Hell pretty boy was way more impressive.

I think floyd is a atg but no where near the "tbe". To me a undefeated record does not mean "tbe".

Anyway, just my 2 cents but its just my opinion. I highly rate floyd and do think he is a top 50 atg.

Discuss, is floyd really atg?

It's just a marketing ploy. Just like T.I. calls himself the King of the South or Lil Wayne the best boxer alive.

I don't actually thinks he's the best boxer ever, but I call him TBE. I also do it to piss people off

How could anyone ever believe that Mayweather is the best ever if he himself doesn't believe it? I don't know about being the best ever, but he he is an extremely talented fighter and an ATG in my book.

I have very little doubt in my mind that Mayweather truly believes he's the best fighter ever.

He probably does just because there is a lack of current atg fighting. Hell he beat odlh, jmm, mosley, prime judah, canelo, cotto.

In his defense, has he ever publicly come out and said what "TBE" means?

He never has so we are all just assuming he know what the acronym means. it could mean anything.

Do you have a video or a article or a post where he has made this claim?

Yes he has, he has said it in interviews. Not going to link them but he definitely has.
