Some days to his epic fight with Manny Pacquaio, Floyd Mayweather, who has never lost a fight in a all of his 47 professional fights, compared himself to boxing legend, Muhammed Ali, saying he’s a better fighter than Ali.
No disrespect to Muhammad Ali, but he did it in one division. I just look at Ali’s career when he fought Leon Spinks and lost to a fighter with seven fights. There were some other fights he lost and he’s still known as The Greatest because that’s what he put out there. It is what it is.
“He called himself The Greatest and I call myself TBE (The Best Ever). I’m pretty sure I’ll get criticized for what I said, but I couldn’t care less. I could care less about the backlash.” He said.
