Hopkins run has to be respected and his amazing longevity, he never lost badly and beat some big names, even if his tactics were sometimes questionable/boring.

Pacquaio being the first 8 division champion (despite an * beside the 8th) obviously is huge, for a guy who started out hiding weights in his pockets to make the minimum weight when he started. His resume is probably the best of the lot imo with wins over HOF'ers ATG's such as Morales, Barerra, Marquez (I gave him the first and draw second). Great offensive skills and heart/chin (as do all mentioned, really)

Mayweather is possibly the most skilled of the bunch and the most defensively sound. The 0 is a big talking point, I had him losing to Castillo 1 but whatever way you look at it he dominated most of his opponents. I think history will lay more blame on him than Pacquaio for the fight not happening and other fights too during his 'retirements:' Personally I don't think his resume is quite as strong as others. However, he exemplifies the old saying 'hit and don't get hit' more than any on the list.

Overall, I'd tentatively put them in this order

Pacquaio
Hopkins
Mayweather
Marquez
Great post. This pretty much sums up my opinion on it and I have the same ranking although Mayweather and Hopkins could possibly be swapped around.

Mayweather is my least favourite but I have him at 3 possibly 2 in this list.
