The world’s best boxer, Floyd Mayweather, has proclaimed himself to be. Money claimed that no one would ever be able to convince him that Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Robinson are superior boxers than he is in a 2015 interview with The First Take. However, he regarded these boxers as stepping stones that created the route for him to continue on as someone who put up his gloves with a spotless record of zero defeats. He insists that they aren’t superior to him, though.
Now Mike Tyson, in his response to Mayweather’s interview, said, “He’s very delusional“. And then Tyson proceeded to say that he’s so scared of the world that he can’t even take his kids to school. ‘Iron’ Mike also said that a great person never needs to guard himself against the people as he’s accepted by the people wholeheartedly.
However, the whole debacle between Mayweather and Tyson that’s been going on since 2015 has been revised by the latest Facebook Post by Boxing TV. This is happening days after Mayweather’s opponent for his next exhibition bout, John Gotti III, warned ‘Money’ with the message “It’s kill or be killed“. While Mayweather claimed that it would be five exhibitions in five countries in nine months in 2023, the matchup is as odd as it comes. The likes of Logan Paul and Chalmers can take a rest as the 50-0 boxer’s choice of opponent has left many baffled.
They posted a fan art of Mayweather and Ali made by the artist, Ross Baines. And this sparked a debate among the fans again regarding who’s the best boxer of all time.

One of the fans, Frankie Moreno, called Floyd Mayweather a good boxer but doesn’t think he’s the greatest ever. They wrote, “I call him a decent fighter but no way a great fighter you half to fight and beat a great fighter to become one sorry you didn’t fight any great fighters.”
