Floyd Mayweather has declared himself as the greatest boxer of all time as he revealed his top five – with Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson left out of his list.
The 43-year-old believes he is levels ahead of everyone else after ending his career having won all 50 of his fights as a professional.
Mayweather, who was named as Boxrec’s top fighter back in June, recently spoke to Fat Joe on his Instagram live, where the social media influencer asked the former undefeated champion to reveal his coveted list.
Breaking it down, he stated: “We’re going to have to go, OK we’ll go Money Mayweather, we got to go Pernell Whitaker, imma go, Roberto Duran, man you put me in a tight predicament.
“As far as with the heavyweights, if we’re going to go heavyweights, I’m going to be honest, I’ve got to go Larry Holmes.”
“Larry Holmes beat everybody in his era, when Larry Holmes got beat by Mike Tyson, he got beat by a young hungry champion and he came out of a years retirement and got beat by Tyson.
“I’ve got to say Larry Holmes, he had the basic fundamentals, he had the jab and even right now he’s still living a great life because he made smart investments.
“So he was good from the beginning of his career to the end of his career.”
Detailing his final pick, Mayweather added: “Aaron Pryor, the only reason why Aaron Pryor lost a fight was because of drugs, he lost only one fight because of drugs.”
