All of his fans will gloat that he was the best at 168 and 175. But Ali was the best at Heavyweight, and still fought everyone. And that was an era where everyone punched like a sledgehammer. Calzaghe didn't fight Dawson (a fight he could have easily won). Didn't rematch Hopkins (a fight people wanted to see). Didn't fight Froch (another fight he could have easily won) etc...

Than there's the whole "Why didn't he fight Hopkins, Jones, etc when they were all in their primes" thing. An argument that cannot be overlooked.

It was an ok legacy that could have easily been much better and much more legendary. But in the years to come, he ain't gonna be shyt (well at least not internationally).

Probable Hall of Famer. Greatest SMW of all time - a title he'll probably hold for another year.

He was champion for 3 defenses and beat some mediocre contenders beforehand, he will get into the HOF but he is no ATG.
