Ali's first order of business was never Ken Norton even though he gave him the most difficulty. But the difference and harmful precedent that has taken root is an era now where not only will "the greats" like Ali avoid the Ken Nortons, but they will flat out not face the current best in their division. I don't think he talks much against Floyd anymore (and for good reason) but look no further than to Ray Leonard as to why Floyd became the fighter he became. SRL played games and waited out Hagler for no good reason other than he felt he couldn't win. Boxing has regressed because the sport took a major loss when Floyd and Pacquiao didn't fight when they should have. ATGs blame Floyd because he displays himself as the mr. Independant, free agent and was publicly not in pursuit of making it happen.

Yep basically this.
Floyd hurt the sport of boxing for his own personal gain.
Thatís why heís not entirely respected by ATG boxers.
