Is Floyd really better than Ali?

Just recently, an interview was done by a Stephen A. Smith of ESPN with Floyd Mayweather Jr. He doesn't actually call it a sit-down interview but kind of an all-access type. He didn't ask, but Floyd just began telling what he thinks about himself compared to the great boxing legends Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Robinson.

The flamboyant undefeated boxing champion, who is now 38-years-old, says this while driving and couldn't help but say that he is better than Ali and Robinson. Although he respects what the guys did for the sport he won't let anyone brainwash him into saying he isn't the best there is in boxing.

That's what he thinks of himself. What do you think about his pronouncements? Is Floyd really better than Ali?

Have never seen Floyd fight. I seem to remember a computerised film many years ago that pitched Ali against Robinson and it said Robinson won! Any would be contender for any sport has to believe they are the best but I still think Ali was the greatest.

He is a counter-puncher and his style is making his opponent be the aggressor and he waits for the right time to throw a good punch .

Hard to compare fighters from different generations but I think Ali is the greatest ever so my vote goes to Ali.

Since I don’t follow boxing, I cannot comment on the people, but psychologically I am given to understand that self-aggrandizement is necessary for success.

Smokin' Joe Frazier would pummel this guy. Could he stand up to the 1950s less wimpy boxing style and brutal assault of Jake LaMotta? Who's his competition? Ali had to fight so many famous and great opponents.
