    hard to rate because of the old 15 round compared to the 12 round fights.a lot of 12 round winners wouldn`t have won a 15 round outcome.

    Crawford , Spence, and Thurman never have fought each other .. The Pansy ass coddled fighters of today wont get in the ring with each other .. Pac is 42 years old, a shell of himself, and will not move up 10 spots on an all time P4P great list for a W in this fight ... People give WAY to much credit for todays boxing talent .. THEY DO NOT FIGHT EACH OTHER ... figure it out

    I think his achivements and resume if he beat Spence would make up for not beating Mayweather. I don't think i'd rank him as the goat, but I wouldn't have any problems with somebody that did.

    It is an interesting discussion. IMO with the Spence win, Pac would definitely surpass Mayweather (so in that sense it makes up) and I would probably rank him Top 10 pd for pd. He does not crack the Top 5 though IMO, because he did not beat the other best fighter of his generation in Mayweather.

    he was not even the greatest of his generation, let alone all time. Having said that I think he has to be a lock in any credible top 25 list. Last I did one he was on the 15-20 range. I am not sure he would crack my top 10, but I think he clearly has a case already.

    He isn't the best of his generation, but I think he's the greatest.
