This smart, cocky little motherfucker says Ali is the "5th best fighter of all-time" while naming himself #1.  http://www.cbssports.com/general/eye-on-sports/25265570/floyd-mayweather-says-muhammad-ali-is-the-5th-best-boxer-of-all-time

I say if he fought in the 1970's-80's, there were 8 guys right off the top of my head that would put a big L on him:
-Duran
-Leonard
-Arguello
-Pryor (and would have knocked him out to boot)
-Salvador Sanchez-another Ko
-Wilfredo Gomez
-Wilfredo Benitez-best scientific fighter of the era and could punch too, unlike Floyd
-Tommy Hearns-remember Pipino Cuevas? Floyd has no offense and I think it would be a less than 3 round slaughter with multiple knockdowns.

I've never been a Floyd fan but give him credit as he's a fantastic marketer of a far overrated product (himself) in an era of dead boxing.  This guy is, without a doubt, the biggest douche in sports this decade and likely last as well.

Thoughts?

HBF called it on the nose. Mayweather is a fraud. His pattern is as predictable as sunrise - he steals three early rounds with flurries of action, then clinches and grabs for the rest of the fight. Marvin Hagler probably kills him, literally.

Boxing is dead and when the body is found cold, Floyd is the prime suspect.

Forgot about Hagler but I don't think Fraud ever got up to 160. Has he?  That would have been another brutal knockout.

I'd also add JC Chavez, Donald Curry. Julian Jackson would have knocked him the fuck out all the way from the US Virgin Islands. Mike McCallum would have outboxed him.

Jackson could fucking punch, no doubt.

McCallum was realy, really good too.

Jeez I miss the days when I could name a handful of great fighters in each weight class.

Colin McGregor has thrown out a winner take all challenge to Mayweather. Dana White did the same thing a few years ago challenging Floyd to take on Sean Sherk. McGregor might actually generate enough interest to make the financial aspect enticing to Mayweather.

I actually thought Mugabi had enough power to get to Hagler at the time. But, silly me, it was Hagler....

Mugabi changed his strategy for Hagler, and I think that led to his defeat, also.

Boxing used to be so damn good in the 70's and 80's.  Now it's like watching TNA.

Thought I'd do a search and sure enough there are some articles out there on fantasy boxing matches involving Floyd Mayweather.

First one is how he would fair against Thomas Hearns:

http://beforeitsnews.com/sports/2012/08/fantasy-fights-thomas-hearns-vs-floyd-mayweather-jr-2448184.html


This one is Mayweather vs Hagler, Duran, Leonard and Hearns and Mayweather doesn't fair too well.

Thats the only way Colin could make just 1/10 of what Floyd makes in a fight. Unless McGregor decides to become a boxer there's no chance in hell such a thing would ever happen.
