Default Muhammad Ali vs Floyd Mayweather Jr, Who Is The Greater Fighter?

And obviously we're talking about Ali in his prime (late 60's) because the Ali in the 70's obviously couldnt hold a candle to Money Mayweather.

Tough one for me, but i'd have to say Floyd is the greater fighter. His defense is better, punches are sharper, and reflexes are quicker. Not to mention he's been taking on tougher competition (without a single loss on his record).

Who do you guys think is the greater of these 2 legendary fighters?

Tougher competition?

Compared to Ali, Mayweather's resume is nothing.

Ali is the greater fighter, had the much better resume and accomplished more.

For skills I'd say they were pretty even

Mayweather is by far the superior fighter,he just doesn't have a pair of balls.

One can only respect Muhammad Ali for fighting every legitimate contender in a great era of heavyweight boxing but we are talking about skills here and for that Mayweather is the greater fighter,he just doesn't want to prove it against the best.

No their not, Mayweather is far more skilled than Ali ever was.This really isn't up for debate.


Cassius Clay was a special heavyweight but not a special fighter,give his skills to any lightweight or welterweight and they are limited to journeyman status.

Muhammad Ali,the fat slob of the 1970's was a really tough guy and nothing else really.

Hard to do that when Ali did his part by beating and facing the best of his era. Floyd has yet to constantly face top opposition to show how his true skills are when put up to the test.

I cant beleive you guys even respond to these joke accounts, bigmacfoster is just a big****ingidiot. Ali of the 60s and 70s was a better fighter period, better resume by far.

Frazier and Foreman are criminally overrated and he has 2 wins over Liston when he was way passed his prime. Not as impressive of a resume when you really break it down, especially when comparing it to Mayweather who's consistantly fought fighters in the PFP list and beaten all of them usually without breaking a sweat.

If that's not the mark of a great fighter then i don't know what is.
