    You sound like a dictator! Wouldn't you find it a strange world where everyone thought Floyd was best of era no questions asked?
    Whilst you think Pac can't be best of era as he lost to a school teacher, many will have a different criteria and can't have a guy who never fought in others backyards as best of era.
    Accept that many don't want to give Floyd credit you think he deserves as boxing fans don't want future stars of sport to replicate Floyd s career and the way he operated, as what Floyd did don't turn them on and what Pac did gets people aroused.

      Floyd is retired now, seems happier than ever (which is great to see) yet he still gets hate from all angles. True fight fans do appreciate him but like most all time greats it can be decades before they truly get the respect they deserve.

      For me, Floyd is the greatest of my era (I am early 30’s,) he is a wizard in the ring and it really annoys me when people disrespect him. He has done so much for the sport

      When do you think he will get the credit he deserves?
      Never because Floyd's style was boring to casual fans and he beat their favorite fighter (probably, example Canelo nuthuggers and pacquaoi fans). ( I personally dont care, I love Floyd im a big fan of him )

      I believe Floyd is TBE. Best resume in this generation, best defensive boxer of all time, great ring IQ, always adapted to whoever he was fighting. Didnt duck rematches in close fights (Maidana perfect example) and as you said he brought a lot of money and eyeballs to the sport.

      I know Floyd is too rich to become a full time trainer, but it would be amazing to poke his brain when it comes to boxing.

        So you think if he fought in people's back yards he may have lost a few? Most of the people he fought it felt like they were the home fighter such was the support they received. Anyway you have a right to your opinion without being bashed for it. Goodbye Hugh Grant from Manilla

          Yes, it's possible and bigger likelihood floyd might have lost if he fought in others backyards, but as floyd is highly skilled he might not have lost neccesarily. But main thing is, Floyd's wins would be deemed more greater and special and floyd couldn't really be seen as not a risk taker. I mean Tyson fury beating wlad in Germany and wilder is a big statement.
          Hey I'm not from vanilla lol. Bye bye for now

            Why fight outside of Vegas? It’s where the money is. Fury didn’t have a choice but to fight in Germany as Wlad was the champion, likewise with Wilder. The biggest bid came from Vegas.

            You are posting here years and you still don’t know **** about boxing. Do yourself a favour.

              The younger fans who weren’t around to see Mayweather duck, stall, work stipulations into contracts that benefited him, seem to be giving him credit because of the 0.

              Of course, this credit is not justified and is being handed out by know-nothings but he’s getting the credit nonetheless.

                Maybe never. He's a total piece of **** and nobody likes him really. Repulsive personality, no redeeming features, despite being a boxing genius

                    Mayweather deserves as much credit, relatively, as Rocky Marciano receives. No more than that. He's certainly not TBE. He will never be considered as such by those whose opinions matter.

                      Floyd reminds me a lot of Ray Leonard.
