Would you put Floyd Mayweather Jr. on the pound-4-pound all time greatest boxers list?
A lot of people would. The usual argument is that, yes, maybe he’s not that exciting, but he is one of the best. Well, UFC heavyweight Matt Mitrione would disagree.
The heavyweight spoke on the Three Amigos Podcast and was asked where he would place Mayweather on the list.
“As far as pound-for-pound, I don’t really think that Mayweather even belongs in that conversation. There’s a litany of other fighters that belong there before him. Mayweather is extremely successful, but I don’t consider him a boxer. A boxer is more than just being fleet of foot and having great dexterity. They’re great punchers and counter-punchers and a lead-in aggressive puncher, and I just don’t see that in him. I guess I just don’t respect him in his craft, even though I find him to be highly athletic.”
What do you think of mayweather’s career as a whole, would you say he’s one of the best ever?
