Floyd Mayweather's legacy

Floyd Mayweathers legacy
Floyd Mayweather is coming off a year away from the boxing ring and put on a 12 round boxing clinic on the overmatched Robert Guerrero to keep his record to a perfect 44-0 with 26 wins by KO. In the fight Mayweather showed off his amazing speed and his legendary defensive ability as Guerro could barely hit him, and Floyd also used his lightening quick hands to land numerous blows to Guerro. So where does Floyd Mayweather rank historically Mayweather himself has said on numerous occasions that he is the greatest fighter of all time. I wouldn’t go as far as saying mayweather is the best fighter of all time but he is by far the best fighter of his era beating numerous champions such as Arturo Gatti, Zab Judah, Oscar Delahoya, and Ricky hatton, Cotto, Shane Mosley and Juan Manuel Marquez. Mayweather is recognized as the greatest defensive fighter of all time rarely getting hit with clean shots and also known for his great ring Kraft and multiple combination blows. The only things that are so called damaging to Mayweathers legacy is one the fighters of his era Floyd can fight with his c game stuff an still come out on top, and the other is so called ‘ducking” opponents as his critics say he ducked fights with Antonio Margarito and Manny Pacaquio two fighters who suffered k.o loss to Shane Mosley and Juan Manuel Marquez two fighters Floyd Dominated. I don’t believe Floyd is the best fighter of all time, but it isn’t a stretch to have him  in consideration I would put him in the same category in the top  7 with the great Sugar Ray Leonard who said this about Floyd “He is the epitome of a champion”.
