I don't think Floyd will get his just due until long after he retires because he's a hard guy to talk about objectively. Which is understandable, because he is a clear douche bag, but I never understood how a boxing fan can't appreciate Floyd the boxer, because like him or hate him he's the kind of athlete that comes to a sport once every 25-50 years, if ever.
Haters will always find excuse after excuse as to why a guy who's gone 18 years and counting without a loss (16 of those fought at a world championship level) is a bum, a fraud, doesn't deserve to be a boxing great, ect. It really is just silly to hear the stuff people come up with. I think future generations of boxing fans will have more appreciation, because all the drama will be gone and they'll just have the actual art to judge him on. And if you're talking the art of boxing, and you know the art of boxing, Floyd Mayweather is at least top 5 all time and has a serious case for #1.
