    Titles in 5 weight divisions.

    Must be doing something right. No one else in the sport can claim half of those things.

    Oh yeah, can't argue with anything you said!

    If only you could have said, most exciting ever, always exciting, sometimes exciting, can be exciting, usually exciting, or even most exciting fighter at one time.
    When Floyd is winning convincingly, which is 98% of the time, nobody is jumping out of their seats, screaming at the top of their lungs. The only time anyone gets excited at a Floyd Mayweather Jr fight is when they think Floyd might be losing a round or two.
    You could have said best control freak, most predictable fighter, or TBE self promoter but you can't say much about exciting, in my opinion.

    Most exciting does not equal TBE.

    Floyd is an ATG and has a phenomenal work ethic, dedication and ridiculous intelligence in the ring. He has fought the biggest names available (when they would agree to fight him) and never lost a fight officially (I feel like Castillo won the first fight but it wasn't THAT BAD of a decision). I also don't think he is as bad as he portrays himself to the public.

    Floyd was entertaining earlier in his career, but has moved to a less exciting style for the last few years. He is without a doubt a top 15/10 P4P ATG, no denying it at this point. I don't think a realistic/unbiased case can be made for Floyd to be considered TBE, however (unless u r the clown who keeps pointing to money earned as proof of greatness). Also, the fact that he beats women is pretty despicable, so those r things/factors/qualities that I don't like about Floyd

    See @Master, while I agree with your statement about him being overpaid for what he does, you can't say he provides no entertainment value as he's paid that much because his viewing figures suggest people want to watch him fight. Also, me and a few others on here actually enjoy watching him fight. He's classless outside the ring, but all class in there.

    I really believe most people watch Floyd to see him get beat there are very few like you who are fans of his.

    He has alot of fans. You find that any fighter at the top will have that though. The people want to build you up and watch you fall. It was hilarious with Broner when that happened. I used to want it to happen to Floyd but you have to appreciate the genius of him. That being said, if he takes the Cotto rematch in September I'll be rooting for Floyd to get KTFO.

    I agree with @Beanflicker, you really are a waste of space on here.

    Every time somebody trys to tell us how bad, boring, stupid, or light punching Floyd is, I feel compelled to defend him. I'll say something about how he makes very good fighters look bad, always figures out a way to win, and makes more money than any fighter ever has, while always winning.
    On the other hand, when someone try's to tell us that Floyd is the best ever, his fights are all things of beauty, and if you don't agree you are a racist pig I feel compelled to attack Floyd. I'll say something about how Floyd is the most predictable fighter ever, his fights are usually exciting for 2 or 3 rounds and then he starts picking them apart, watching Floyd fight is like watching a traffic signal you always know what's coming next.
    Anybody else have this defend/attack thing going on with Floyd.
    More or less paddling in that same canoe with a few differences. I dont find him boring in the ring and my major beef with the guy is more philosophical but ends in the same place. Its his safety first style outside the ring and the litany of excuses that seem to flow whenever that practice is put into question. Sure he's beaten a few title holders but he lives in an era of 100 belts. He may have 2 or 3 HOF's on his lodge pole but he fought them all well past their prime. In many ways he's responsible for changing what "risk and reward" entails, choosing the road most traveled, not going down certain roads or waiting on someone to go down the road first. Money replaced legacy and once he split with Arum he went on to do what Oscar did but in many ways eliminated the risks Oscar took. He never unified a division because he didn't have to right. There was always some kind of excuse as to why he never fought X going back to Shane. And in addition PPV has absolutely nothing to do with the quality on the field but people somehow equate that with the act of fighting He' a dominant fighter and an exceptional boxer who is definitely in the conversation of a top 25 atg but he could have done so much more. He retired for about 5 years at times conveniently and has essentially been beating up on the same style of fighter for 15 years. Those who did not fit that style he fought 10 years out of their prime.

    I believe Historians will weigh the when much more then the what.
