    And not only that most fans in here don't even see 1/2 the skills he shows, this forum as a whole is the worst judge of boxing you can find, there is a reason why ALL the common opponents of Manny and Floyd state Floyd is the best they fought, how do these people skip over that like its nothing, its sooooo significant in the big picture of rating Mayweather, you don't hear top fighters and trainers talk the rubbish like fans do, they know better, they understand what is on display.

    Floyd is the best of his era no doubt about it, that is why he beat everyone, as time goes by history will look back and go wow what a ring genius he was.

      He will absolutely be looked upon favourably in the future because future generations won't hate his guts. But I'm not so sure about all the common opponents saying Floyd was the best. Marquez in the "Best I Faced" picked Pacquiao and so did De La Hoya.

          This was in 2010 before retiring. Here are his answers after retiring.

          ringtv because the site will probalby the url

          It seems Hatton also said Pacquiao was the best overall as well though he correctly predicted Mayweather would beat Pacquiao.

          Common opponents' opinions:
          Mosley & Cotto: Mayweather best overall.
          Marquez, De La Hoya, & Hatton: Pacquiao best overall

          • So, Pac fans love Pac because he's a lovable Yes Man and not so much his resume ?

            I mean, how can a Pac fan explain the bums he fought at WW alone ???? Pac fans mock May vs Conor and Berto.
            Conor was a pure $$$$$$ grab that anyone with at least 1 brain cell would have jumped at. Thing is, only a fighter with May's credentials made that a mega event.
            Berto > Rios, Algeiri, HORN, Broner, DLH, Lucas, most likely Mosley and Vargas......

            How can a Pac fan defend his WW resume without looking like an utter fool ?!?!?!

            Keith and who else ?!?!?!

              Lol you fell in the same trap they all do that interview was before he fought Floyd that's why Floyd is not mentioned at all, check it out find the date of that interview not when posted when it was taken, so many videos and such are disappearing now, Ive posted them all a long time ago now.

                That interview was done in 2016.

                Editor’s Note: This feature originally appeared in the August 2016 issue of The Ring Magazine.
                Just look at his answers, Marquez says

                After four fights with him, I was able to know him better. I
                So it was definitely after he fought Floyd and more recent than that ES video.

                  His offense…not so much. His ability to pick and choose all details of his fights gave him leverage for his lack of offense and makes him seem better than what he is.

                  Also worth mentioning that Floyd also paid usada out of his own pocket. That's how he was able to get a free pass on the failed drug tests from 2010 - 2012. The TUE he got against Manny may perhaps be one of the most blatant examples of favoritism in sports.

                  Im also suspicious of why Floyd declined the 5 million dollar positive test fee if he was indeed clean.

                  I also agree with your assessment of Floyd's limited offensive skills. As we can see in spoons video, Floyd was actually out landed significantly by Manny in their fight.

                    Floyd is what I call a boxer’s boxer

                    Sometimes, this goes against being a civilian’s boxer

                    every boxing gym I been in had kids hailing Floyd as a hero for his mastery of boxing

                    • WW May and WW PAC have pretty much the same KO %
