Every true atg and goat candidate is defined by the opponents they fought. Some great fighters are ranked lower jusy because they didnt have the opposition to test them.

Floyd had the opportunity in 09 in the best division in the entire world and instead he retired.

If he didn't retire... if he beat cotto, margarito, mosley, and paul williams when they were still the top ranked fighters in the world... on top of his current resume...

You might just have to call Floyd the goat. He would be up right up there with ali, lennox lewis, sugar ray leonard, robinson.

As it stands now, he's not even above Pacquiao.
