Mayweather Is the Best Boxer of All Time

Love him, or hate him.  Loathe him or respect him.

Y’all have got to give it up for Floyd “Money” Mayweather.

In beating Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in a majority decision (what the hell caused it not to be unanimous is beoynd me) Saturday night, Mayweather unified the junior middleweight world titles: WBC welterweight champion, WBA super welterweight champion, and the WBC diamond super welterweight belt.  For those scoring at home, here is a list of major titles in Mayweather’s war chest:

  • WBC Super Featherweight Champion (130 lbs)
  • WBC Lightweight Champion (135 lbs)
  • WBC Light Welterweight Champion (140 lbs)
  • IBF Welterweight Champion (147 lbs)
  • WBC Welterweight Champion (147 lbs)
  • WBC Light Middleweight Champion (154 lbs)
  • WBC Welterweight Champion (147 lbs)
  • WBA Light Middleweight Champion (154 lbs)

Before I go any further, I am not a diehard fan of Mayweather’s.  I’m still mad that he was not able to get that fight with Manny Pacquiao.  I also think Floyd needs a lesson or two in humility.

That being said, you cannot deny this brother’s talent.  I mean, Mayweather is 45-0 with 26 KOs, 36 years old and looks as if he could fight for another five years.

Mayweather keeps himself in such great shape.  And the fact that he has climbed up several weight classes while staying undefeated is nothing short of remarkable.

Look at the clinic he put on the younger and more powerful Canelo.  Even though all the judges did not give Floyd every round, it looked like he should have won every round (ESPN gave Floyd every round, scoring it 120-108).

Speaking of judges, what in the hell was C.J. Ross thinking in scoring it a tie (114-114)?  By the way, she was the judge who gave Timothy Bradley Jr. a decision win against Manny Pacquiao.

But I digress…

Mayweather has not only proven to be the best pound-for-pound fighter of all time, he is THE BEST – period.

  1. I was really rooting hard for Canelo, but Mayweather is just a master.
