Floyd Mayweather Jr. just declared himself as “the greatest” over boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

The “Money” has never been shy to brag his undefeated 50-0, which already has a place in boxing history.

Mayweather wasn’t happy with the fact that the fans have regardrd Ali as “the best of all-time” over him.

“I love Ali, but sitting on the ropes, taking punishment as far as doing a rope-a-dope – that’s not cool,” Mayweather said on ESPN. “I have to take my hat off to Ali, but I didn’t give this sport 40 years to say that there’s another fighter better than me. What I’m here to teach fighters is this: the name of the game is to hit and not get hit. It’s not about taking punishment.”

“He’s beat more world champions than any other fighter in a shorter time and less fights than any other fighter.”
