High talents, not a great competitor!!! He fights for money alone and that can sabotage the minds competitive spirit. His overall natural abilities and the knowledge of techniques and methods puts him in the top one hundred all time!! I would guess close to 75 or so, in his weight class at 147 he's at a disadvantage but at 140lbs he moves up quickly.
He's a great talent but not a great fighter!! He is a modern day master boxer but he looks to counter first!! Not exactly exciting, in the days of "live boxing" he would be forced to fight because no promotor would use his style passed a 6 rounder. Boxers like Pep, one of the best Master Boxers, didn't lounge on the ropes and step around, Pep was on the move laterialy and going in and out on his opponents. If Mayweather adopted Peps techniques and could have served him well.
Floyd will be fighting more if he continues his career, his legs will need alot of conditioning because thats what goes first!! He will have to step around his opponents and NOT lounge on the ropes because he WILL wear down if he's in there with a good fighter.
At 140lbs he would be competitive with just about anyone, only the guys with power and a overwhelming style like Ike Williams might dominate him.
Great talents, very good boxer, average fighter but things might change soon.
