Floyd revealed that he arrived at this conclusion because he has fought more world champions and won world titles in 5 different weight divisions.
According to him, he landed punches at the highest percentage and took less punishment, so he is undoubtedly the best in the game.
He added that even if boxers like Muhammad Ali paved the way for him, the legendary man lost his world title to a fighter with only seven fights.
His words, “He’s beat more world champions than any other fighter in a shorter time and less fights than any other fighter.”
“Landed punches at the highest percentage and took less punishment. He’s been world champion 18 years in five different weight divisions.”
“Ali, only one weight class and really lost to Ken Norton three times. What he did is he stood for a cause in an era when African-Americans didn’t stand up for their people.”
“What are we judging fighters on? Because if we’re judging fighters on standing for a cause, then it’s Ali hands down. But if we’re talking about taking the least punishment and breaking records, it’s Floyd Mayweather.”
“Muhammad Ali paved the way for me to be where I’m at today, he’s a legend. But when we talk about record breaking, we’ve got to talk about Ali losing his world title to a fighter with only seven fights.”
“I have to take my hat off to Ali, but I didn’t give this sport 40 years to say that there’s another fighter better than me. What I’m here to teach fighters is this: the name of the game is to hit and not get hit. It’s not about taking punishment.”
