    After watching Loma ,who was many peoples P4P(mine) get absolutely dismantled by Lopez last night it has only confirmed to me that Mayweather is the GOAT ...

    Can you imagine what Floyd would have done to both of them last night when he was in his prime

    A true Legend imo

    Slightly unfair on Loma there imo.

    Agree though that mayweathers ability is often undervalued due to him selectively choosing opponents at times (I've quite a bit of rare memorabilia of his, so saying this as a big fan).

    His genius and defensive skill was on another level imo. He'd of suffered the same fate as loma eventually though if he challenged himself the way Loma did.

    I think Mayweather challenged himself too?

    Like every ATG in history, Mayweathers resume will continue to age like a fine wine.

    Pacquiao
    Cotto
    Hatton
    Canelo
    Judah
    Castillox2
    DLH
    Mosley
    Corrales
    Gatti
    JMM
    Maidanax2

    absurdly deep resume. History will judge floyd extremely well, arguably the GOAT at 130.

    He did but at the tail end of his career he was selective imo.

    Loma will go down as one of the greatest offensive fighters ever for his natural weight class and probably in boxing.

    Mayweather goes down as one of, if not the GOAT boxers. That's the difference for me, Mayweather was a much better boxer overall and the stats back it up, punch stats, fights etc.

    Floyd gets hammered for picking and choosing etc....but he still beat them and he earned the right to do it by beating champion after champion...

    Defo best of last 30 years

    Could have really challenged himself and fought Pacquiao 5 years earlier

    Mayweather will go down as one of the best fighters of all time no doubt. And fully deserved too.

    It’s an insult on the ATGs in my opinion to have Loma as one of the greatest offensive fighters of all time. Isn’t even close.

    May is top 20.

    He doesn't touch Greb, Langford or Robinson's class.

    People were comparing Lopez vs Loma with Canelo vs Mayweather, but those fights had such a different outcome that tells about the gap in boxing talent between Floyd and Loma.

    Dismantled? Lol .. I and plenty others scored it a draw. Loma had a very slow start, but took over in the second half of the fight.

    Loma was fighting at a weight class far to big for him and still almost cleaned up all the belts. Which shows what a special fighter he is.

    Lomachenko is an exceptional fighter who has had a fine pro career, and had a amateur career Floyd could only dream of.
