If Mayweather Retired Today

Where do you think he would rank among the P4P best boxers of all time?

As well, should he have say 5 more fights before retiring, all wins including one over Manny P, where would you rank him then?

Wheres the love

For Floyd to be in the Top 10, he’d have to fight and beat Shane, Cotto, and Pacquiao, and maybe one other, be it Paul Williams or another competitive welter.

He’s GOT to stop fighting smaller guys and fight a full size welterweight.

I don’t think Mayweather wants any part of Williams. Then again…you think Williams will try to fight at welterweight again if he keeps having success at MW?

If Williams can get Mayweather 10+mil, he’ll definitely fight him. Same with Shane and Cotto.
The real big money, 15+, is with Pac.
But to echo Irish, he has to stop fighting smaller guys. Pac needs to beat Mayweather (and Marquez) to be P4P, not the other way around.

Agreed on all points.

Williams/Mayweather will give Williams a payday that he’s never come close to seeing before. Even if he has to cut one of those lanky fuckin arms off, he’ll make 147.
