    Let me be clear. I'm not trying to start a war here that turns into something nasty.

    But it probably will anyways. Hopefully some good replies pour in before then.

    I'm genuinely asking what makes Mayweather better than Calzaghe p4p. Hes usually regarded as such.

    But they're both undefeated. They both have reputations for fighting their best opponents past their best. And it's actually Calzaghe who has the best win over an opponent in their prime. Kessler is better than anybody Mayweather fought in their prime.

    Mayweather made much more money and was much more well known. Ok, sure. But I mean strictly from a boxing legacy standpoint why is Mayweather better than Calzaghe p4p. Considering the previous paragraph.

    So with that said what makes Mayweather better than Calzaghe p4p.

    Good question.

    I think sir Joe Calzaghe IS ahead of Mayweather.

    Let me break it down ....

    First, he can actually bloody read!
    Secondly, he doesn't beat up his baby momas around the ****ing place.
    Thirdly, he don't need no saline to do it either .
    Fourthly and most importantly, he actually has a full grown peni and doesn't take female hormones.


    Where Mayweather is Infront is money baby.
    And if you base greatness on money then yeah TMT forever !

    Edit:- Oh and if they ever met in the ring or on the cobbles. Calzaghe would land that straight left hand flush on that dome and take him straight to ***** street .
    Don't pass go.

    probably may had five plus divisions titles, joe had 1 division

    and may made many recognised defences, joe made lacy bika manfredo kessler.

    and money had many elites, joe had perhaps one whom he refused to rematch when injury free.

    u would have to be blind not to notice a 5/6 times difference. Its like the difference between supersonic and a 50mph mini.

    BUt they do have similarities in that both sets of fans overblow their acheivements, and also Joe and MOney were involved in severe domestic marital abuse.

    Joe is supposed to have come from poor upbringings like Money.... but recently there seems doubt cast on this as he was born and resided in the very cushy west end borough of Hammersmith as a child - i tihnk the poor stuff might have been retconned in the same way as he was retconned to be pure welsh.

    Calzaghe has the better single win. Hes also undefeated like Mayweather.

    When you bring up other comparisons to Mayweather and correctly point out that he has better wins than Mayweather they come back with Floyd is undefeated. You cant do that with Calzaghe because Calzaghe never lost either.

    Money beat several divisions Kesslers. Kessler is one elite. Money has several, before you add in HoF/ATG.

    Nationality. And overrating all his opponents, whom also happen to be overrated due to nationality and demography.

    who in their right mind would count wins over 40somethings as great wins.

    you must move past this to the truth.

    Who counts Marquez, Mosley, Pac and DLH as great wins for FMJ. All were either old or close to or even a decade past their prime.

    they are easily very good, on par with kessler if not above, all of them.

    lets no forget that during kesslers half career at MW, he won nothing, he was not even close to an elite MW.

    so lets not pretend that SMW was a fully fledged division like the several that Floyd won titles in.

    Laughable. Kessler was an unbeaten 28 year old. Supposed to be a dominant Supermiddleweight
