Duran is a top 10 ATG. Only Die Hard Floyd Halfwits have Floyd cracking the top 50.

if anything you are uneducated for failing to see the true greatness of mayweather, obviously duran is truly great in his own right but that what makes it a legit topic.

for the record duran was highly inconsistent above 135 and there are about half a dozen nights were floyd without a shadow of a doubt would have beat him. beating him at his best however is something entirely different.

ATG Status will be conferred by the pundits and fans of the future, not by present day fans or critics of an active fighter.

I ain't a Floyd fan, but he's certainly one of, or the, best of his generation. How he'll be viewed in posterity is not for us to decide though (or at least, not unless you hope to be posting/reading meaningless rubbish for another 2 or 3 decades and Ring Virtua(TM) or NSB Neo decide that ATG status can be determined by a fan poll).

I'd probably be in this camp of thought. Mayweather would give him trouble but a motivated and well conditioned duran puts pressure on anybody

Floyd Mayweather will never win a belt at middleweight because he will never take on an opponent slightly bigger than himself, like Sergio Martinez or Gennady Golovkin. However, Floyd has never had a problem fighting smaller men like Juan Manuel Marquez.

Duran never ducked anybody. His achievements are greater than Floyds. Instead of cherry-picking old faded fighters like Shane Mosley or flawed fighters coming off a loss like Zab Judah, instead of ducking prime lightweights, welterweights and middleweights, Duran was always willing to fight the best boxers in their prime.

Even fighters much bigger than himself like Iran Barkley!
Duran would never request a smaller fighter than himself can t wear punchers gloves, he just wouldn't and imagining Duran doing it is laughable.

That's why Floyd will never be considered a truly "great" fighter.

Unlike Duran, he lacks a warrior's mentality.
