    Picked Mayweather like everyone else, Andre Ward almost there he has a strong case for people who like indomitable personalities.

    Mayweather gave the folks ringside Ginger Ale for 12 rounds, Canelo will always be behind Mayweather...Unless he some how lures him into the ring anytime in his life. That will be an ATG high value Cherry Pick

    Of the three mentioned, Canelo is leagues ahead of the other two in terms of his resume for the period 2010 - 2019.

    Floyd is overall, the greatest of the three at this stage and will probably still be when all three are retired.

    However, the distinction is for the recent decade, and he didn't do enough ( nine legit bouts, all at 147, no legit KOs) to dominate the decade.

    Canelo and Ward shouldn’t even be nominations.

    Obviously u need to do some research. Pac is the catch weight king. De La Hoya, Cotto, Margarito, Clottey just to name a few.

    My bad I misread your post I agree with you.. Pac has the longevity but resume wise this decade isn't his best..the rest around are just so weak by comparison.
