The clear favorite for this is Mayweather, has it all the man realistically is at the top of everything in the sport, well more or less. But is there anyone that can rival him? Not quite sure how far to stretch this era of boxing really. I mean the era is obviously ending

Isn't that what makes Floyd special is that he does fight when he wants? When he does fight it is like the Oscars for boxing. I respect Floyd for fighting when he wants to. I wished Ali fought less, he would be in much better health. Floyd is being mart with his career and I respect that. It is just like Bulls fans bitching about D Rose not playing, dude had a serious MCL surgery and the only reason why you want the dude to play is because you want to see him? That is how Grant Hill almost destroyed his career is by coming back too soon from an ankle injury (If Tamia were my wife I would never leave the house). It is the same in boxing, who knows what type of punishment Floyd takes in fights or the kind of training he puts his body through. The fact, when he fights, it is worth the wait and I can not knock him for that. Fans can be very selfish at times.


For the best of this era I have three candidates: 1. Mayweather Jr. 2. De La Hoya 3. Kiltchko
Mayweather self explanatory, Oscar fought everyone even though he lost big fights and Both K brothers have dominated the heavyweight division for a very long time.

Man I hurt for yawl but Derrick Roses don't come into the league everyday! He will be back for the 2013-2014 season. Yawl are actually doing well without him. Just imagine how great yawl will be when he comes back.

If he gets rid of his brothers from digging in his pockets, he'll be fine. There's nothing wrong with his knee. His brothers and his agent had him do those interviews and the Bulls are pissed about it, supposedly he doesn't like the way the team is constructed
