Mayweather believes he’s better then Ali

November 23, 2007

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.”

    mayweather is obviously delirious. better than Ali, only in his dreams. ali was a heavy weight so this little punk doesnt have the power to deal with him, not to mention ali would have run circles around this fool. Saying he is greater than ali is saying he could have beat george forman, and that should be enough to make any boxing savvy person see through this fools showboating.
