The main difference between the two is that Roy has wins over Hopkins and Toney, two of the greatest fighters of his era, and he also has the move up to heavyweight to win a title followed by the move back down to light heavyweight to win back a title. Those accomplishments trump anything Mayweather ever did, and prove Roy's greatness in a way Mayweather doesn't seem to care to prove.
