He's definmitely not a bona fide ATG, he's avoided too many boxers.
He ducked Kostya Tszyu, whom he could have fought anytime between 2000 and 2004.
Floyd demanded smaller boxers like 135 JMM and 140 Hatton move up to fight him at 147 , but when Floyd was at 130/135 he was afraid of going up to 140 to fight Kostya.
