Where do you rate Floyd Mayweather among the ATGs?
All things considered, where would you rank Floyd Mayweather Jr among ATGs like Ali, Robinson, Leonard, Greb, Langford, etc?

When I read "Floyd" I think of Floyd Paterson!! You mean Floyd "I wanna be a gansta" Mayweather?
I think he has high talents in the sport but as a welterweight ranks far from the top twenty. He's undersized and doesn't have much pop!!
Personally he lost out as a Champion, he could have pulled millions of fans in if he just acted like a man instead of a clown!! He had the intelligence and the talents and looked to be huge in his era but will go down in the sport as another talent who did nothing for the sport, in fact hurt it going to jail for hitting a woman.
With a slight tweaking of his style that showed more ferosity in the ring and a receptive personality outside he could have been the man who brought boxing back. He had the perfect personality in Pacman to fight a series of bouts with and he could have been the man who polarized the sport! Ray.
