Floyd Mayweather claims to be the greatest boxer ever before his upcoming fight with Ricky Hatton on December 8th. The unbeaten American welterweight insists he is better than legends Sugar Ray Robinson and Muhammad Ali.
“I can quit today and be known as the best fighter that ever lived. I respect what Robinson and Ali did for the sport. But I am the greatest, and this is my time.”
Mayweather, who has beaten Castillo, Oscar De La Hoya, DeMarcus Corley, Zab Judah and Sharmba Mitchell, stated that Ricky Hatton is “dirty” and one-dimensional.
“I didn’t get the chance to watch him against Kostya Tszyu,” said Mayweather. I already knew what it was – punch, hold, punch, hold. From what I’ve seen, it was extremely dirty. And that’s what I’m saying – that Ricky Hatton is a very dirty fighter.”
