In an ATG sense, Pac will be well above the likes of Holyfield. If you want to compare them skill wise, then I'd have Holyfield above Pac. Apart from Mayweather, who hasn't Pac fought?

It's already set in stone who will be viewed higher in a historical sense.
Perhaps to the newer fans.

To the historians and so forth, nothing is set in stone in that regard at all.

And, plenty will have Holyfield above him.

Honestly, 20 years from now you will not see Holyfield higher than Pac in any ATG P4P list. I don't care for Pac, someone called him an athletic Gatti and they're not far off but he's achieved feats no one else in the sport has.

And? So has Hopkins. Is he above Holyfield too?

Before Pacquaio, Oscar De La Hoya had achieved feats no one else in the sport had, was he above Holyfield then? No.

And, Pacquaio isn't now, IMO.

In 20 years time, he may be considered higher due to his popularity.

But, to legit historians, it's not set in stone, at all.

For me it's Holyfield B-Hop RJJ but Holyfield & RJJ are ruining their legacies by continuing to fight and getting beat up by guys who weren't fit to lace their gloves.

But if we're talking generally, when their career's are done people will look at Floyd & Pac as being the top 2.

Most boxing heads will probably lean towards the 3 I mentioned above (taking nothing away from Pac & Floyd).
