I know how it is. I can't resist to comment on post like those but i've learn that is a waste of time trying to corner them with facts. They disappear and two days later repeat the same stupid comments.

He is an ATG. How high on the list is debatable, but clearly beneath top 10.

Mayweather an ATG? Yes! That's coming from one of his biggest criticizers. I think a lot of his career has been built on smoke and mirrors, but you can't deny his skills and his accomplishments.

This is such a non-issue, of course.

Floyd is an all time great and a 1st ballot hall-of-famer. This has been the case for years now.

Anyone who says otherwise need to get their ass back under the bridge where they belong.

You can say he isn't all you want but when you return back to reality you'll see its already a guarantee. So don't waste your time.

Yes.

He's been an infuriatingly inactive fighter and we missed out on some more interesting bouts due to circumstance and his choice in opposition....but he's still a great boxer who has achieved a damn lot. Just because he should've done more, doesn't mean he isn't an ATG in his own right.

Out of Mayweather's last 25 opponents. 19 of them were in the top 10 of their division. 11 of them were in the top 3 of their division. 6 of them were top 10 P4P fighters.

Must I go on?

He is.

Anyone who ask that question is extremely stupid.

He probably is around 40-50. Very goos skills, very limited resume.

Floyd "The avoid" obviously has dumb fans.
So how exactly do you arrive at your conclusions if not via reading?
