    Lol what knowledgeable boxing fans don't think mayweather is top ten? Callin bullshit on that. Floyd is a goat candidate in boxing. And other goat contenders like Ali have their fair share of decisions.

    It's about winning against the elite. Not just being flashy.

    That's one list. And even as a boxing casual its a bad list. Duran at 6 all time with that many losses? Yeah probably not though.

    Back then he was revered indeed, dont know about the new Gen.

    The way I see it, top 3 is a lock, like 4 ever...

    Ali, SRR, Armstrong... no particular order.

    I have Sweet Pea @ 4

    Then it gets tricky...
    Archie Moore is up there...

    Sorry, Im not really impressed by PBF... not even top 5.

    But it´s like...my opinion...

    Yeah its all pretty subjective. I don't like Floyd but imo he is the best boxer of his generation. Even if he tried to make every fight as favorable as possible, 50-0 is incredible.

    I'm an Ali guy but I'm super casual by boxing standards. I know 1000x more about mma.

    I voted for Fedor, but actually a lot of GSP's takedowns made me go "Holy sh*t, did you see that?" Some people only like striking (luckily for them there are pure striking sports like boxing and muy thai around), some people only like grappling (luckily for them there are pure grappling sports like BJJ and wrestling around). Me, I like both, which is why I watch MMA (as well as boxing and wrestling). GSP has the best takedowns in MMA, so anyone who likes grappling is going to have wow moments in his fights.

    Seriously, if you don't find grappling entertaining, why watch MMA? The striking is much better in boxing and muy thai than in MMA.

    And in fact that's one of the things I like about Fedor, he has 'wow' moments both in striking and in throws. And Anderson has great striking, but also some wow grappling moments (his last second choke against Sonnen was one). Jones actually has more wow grappling moments than striking moments.

    GSP ducking a rematch with "Big Rig," has to keep him a step down from prime Fedor's run.

    Not that Fedor did not feed on some cans, he did, but GSP by most non-fanboy accounts lost that fight and then disappeared.

    It's not just your opinion, it's a lot of people's opinion as well.

    He was already planning to take time off for YEARS beforehand. In the lead up to Hendricks he said he was taking time off win or lose. Anyway it's funny how much people hold one close decision WIN against him. Considering most goat candidates have multiple embarrassing losses.
