There's not enough great fighters on his resume or fighting near his weight class for him to be considered The Greatest of all Time, plus his ducking of Pacquaio eliminates him from any consideration for that mythical title. Truly great fighters fight the greatest of their time not look for any excuse to avoid them.

Can't happen, but he can maybe get into the top 20 with a win over Martinez + Pacquiao, and some solid wins like: Khan, Alexander, Berto, Bradley or something :-)

He said he has 5 more fights left in him after Cotto, can you put together 5 fight resume that could raise him to level of those Greatest that ever lived?
IMO, he's already there or very close.

Sorry, but Floyd would have to stand on Ellerbee's shoulders just to kiss Ray Robinson's ass.

Hah, no doubt Robinson is defintely up there with the best, I think alot of the older generation fighters get too much credit though, boxing is alot more tactical nowadays, instead of standing you punch me I punch you, In 50 years from now, they'll be saying the same about Floyd and the Fighter of that era.

Nothing Floyd does is new. People act like he invented the shoulder roll when the truth is you can find fighters doing it back in the 40s......and the same is true for everything else he does.

And no, boxing today is NOT superior to previous generations.

Forget Ellerbe.

He'd have to stand on that bodyguards shoulders who's head wasn't even in the camera! Did you see that in the ring walk?
