As far as the opinions on Mayweather......the internet magnifies everything. What people used to have to buy a newspaper and read they can find a multitude of different articles and opinions by looking at their phones. Most fans don't have a clue because they really don't do the research. It's easy to say a fighter is top ten when you no nothing of past greats. It's easy to say a fighters skill set today is amazing if you know nothing of the fighters he has emulated.

In all honesty, I've grown bored of discussing history and comparisons because there is always another nitwit you have to explain the obvious to.

I haven't done a list in awhile, but Floyd is probably top 25. My lists are based on both skill set and accomplishments. I have Harry Greb number 2 all time. No ever seen him fight, but it's hard to argue with his resume and the people who actually saw him fight. Are the end of the day it's about opinions.
I cant argue with that. Good day

Whenever I see an ATG list with the name Leonard, and the word Benny or B. nowhere around it, I know it is written by a person without much boxing knowledge.

1. Sugar Ray Robinson.
2. Henry Armstrong.
3. Roberto Duran.
4. Sugar Ray Leonard.
5. Marvin Hagler.

Mainly based on achievements and the fact that I love to watch all their fights now. Obviously before Robinson, Armstrong, Duran and Leonard got old and embarrassed themselves.

Hi Jab! When I am in Europe I watch boxing less than I do in the US. Now I am back but with Toney, Hopkins, Jones, Mayweather all gone, the skillset of present boxers seems a bit... lower than in the past? Also I must be getting softer as i get older, because when I read about Vzquez' eye, I felt a barbarian because i had paid to be at 1 and 3 of the trilogy with Rafa. Hope all is good with you!
