Floyd Mayweather is not the greatest fighter of all time. No matter how many people believe that Floyd Mayweather is the best ever, this is simply not the case. Mayweather did just beat Manny Pacquiao, but there is a lot of controversy surrounding his victory. Many people believe that Manny Pacquiao actually won the fight, and it was revealed that Pacquiao had a debilitating shoulder injury going into the fight. Nonetheless, Mayweather was the victor on that night, but that still doesn’t make him the best fighter of all time. Floyd Mayweather brags about his undefeated record of 48-0, but he should remember that there are several other boxers that have a higher and better record than he does. Rocky Marciano retired with a record of 49-0, and he was the heavyweight champion of the world. Rocky Marciano was regularly knocking out his opponents, and he rarely went the distance. However, Floyd Mayweather is known as a defensive fighter, and most of his fights go to a boring decision. A great fighter must go through adversity, and he must defeat opponents that he is not supposed to. When Muhammad Ali faced George Foreman, many people thought that Muhammad Ali was going to be killed in the ring. However, Muhammad Ali showed the world that he should be considered the greatest of all time. Ali miraculously knocked out George Foreman in the eighth round of their epic fight. Floyd Mayweather has never had an extremely impressive victory in which the world was shocked by his performance. Mayweather has just skated by the boxing world by picking and choosing his opponents. Mayweather is not the greatest of all time, and true boxing fans know this. For more information on this story, visit Dailymail.
