    lol

    Leonard challenged and defeated every dangerous challenger out there while they were in their prime. Did it in exciting fashion as well. Can’t say anything close to the same for Floyd.

    Leonard > Mayweather

      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?
      Man his own DAUGHTER doesn't respect him and her even dumber BF.

      Old Floyd would of had their respect.

        Floyd is already credited by the millions and millions of fighters worldwide

        Floyd is a boxer’s boxer

        I’d be happy to be disliked by the clueless

          Hes already recognized as one of the best. If your looking for EVERYONE to agree he is the GOAT. You got a better chance of getting him nominated for president.

              I disagree. He’s above Marciano but I think Marciano is under appreciated. May weathers resume is just insane. No one could lay a hand on him. A boxing genius

                  The difference is I ain’t a know-nothing casual who dry humps the 0 on someone’s record. I’ve read the books, watched the tapes, did everything in my power to rank all the greats accordingly.

                  Leonard > Mayweather lol

                      He's different than Marciano and is one of the best defensive boxers to ever do it. But that's all you can say, if we're being truthful. Marciano beat Joe Louise. Marciano beat Jersey Joe. He beat some A+ opponents. He retired kind of like Ward did.

                      But Marciano man. That guy was once a century phenomenon. They don't make people like that anymore. Like my grandfather. Someone slammed the trunk of a car onto his hand at a shop. He didn't even flinch. Didn't make a sound. Just said, "Hey, open it up; it's on my hand." (Mangled hand). You'd think someone just brushed up against him the way he acted. People back then were so much tougher than they are now.

                      I think Marciano was a better fighter than Floyd, to be honest. In a different way, in a more pure way. I also like him because he never should have been able to do what he did. Too small, with T-Rex arms. Should have never happened for him. But he willed it to happen. That's a fighter
