A few weeks ago, Floyd Mayweather told ESPN’s Stephen A Smith that he was the greatest boxer of all-time, better than Ali and better than Sugar Ray Robinson.
“No one can ever brainwash me to make me believe that Sugar Ray Robinson and Muhammad Ali was better than me,” he said. “No one could ever brainwash me and tell me that.”
A few days later, former heavyweight champion George Foreman echoed Mayweather’s statement by telling TMZ he thought Mayweather was the greatest pound for pound fighter of all-time because modern boxers were smarter and trained better
“Pound for pound, Floyd is better than me and Muhammad Ali ever were,” “This is a better generation by far,” “They’re smarter, they’re stronger, they’re overall just better fighters.”
Ali wasn’t having it and took to Twitter to remind Foreman and Mayweather that he is still the greatest of all-time
Simple and effective.
