Top ten all time? Fuck me. What are we doing with Hagler, Ali, Marciano, Leonard, Ray Robinson, Frazier, Foreman, Hopkins, Mosley, Hearns, Jones then? And that's only a short list.
Absolutely no way are Ali, Marciano, Frazier or Foreman more skilled than Floyd.

Minus points for lack of aggression once he hit his 30s. Never stopped a great Welterweight. Defensively the best ever, there’s almost no disputing it, but in turn that made his too passive in a lot of fights.

Floyd is the most skilled fighter of all time. Is he the greatest? Well, it depends what you consider great...

But as far as pure skill no one comes close to him. The man stayed fit and in shape every day of the year... Obviously many people don't like his cautious style which is understandable...however it was enough to leave him victorious in every match up he was in... It's boxing, there is no rule on how to fight in order to get a W. Also the man can now retire and enjoy his riches without being brain damaged.

He could have probably transitioned over to ride in the Tour D' France since he spent a lot of his time in the ring on his bicycle.
That's just an idiotic statement, considering his whole style is built on sitting in the pocket. He's actually flat footed
