    Good grief.....I don't even like the man, but it's clear as day Floyd has been mr boxing for pretty much the entire 21st century never minds just the last decade. Manny runs him a close second, but it's a no brainer.
    No one comes close. Loma and Canelo will be the men for the decade 2015-2025 though.

      And that is the final word? LOL! YOUR OPINION MATE! Mr Boxing my ass. Nobody but Flomos liked his way of fighting since he became a welter.

        Mayweather hands down.

        I just wish Mayweather-Pacquiao took place years before it took place. The fans should of had a triology of that fight while both where in their prime and we would of all spoke about if for many years but now were just left with, what if?

          It is just an opinion yes, but my claim is kind of backed up by the fact he made all that money with PPV events, crossover to WWE and then these more recent novelty events which probably generated more than 99% of currently active top boxers purses. Oh and he beat everyone he faced including the next man in line for the fighter of the decade and the man people could actually put number 3 in that list also.

            So, now MONEY is one of the main factors in judging a fighter's legacy??

              OK, maybe this will help. Remember, it's not a Fighter of the Century or Fighter of the Year poll, but the decade specified.

              Floyd Mayweather 10-0-0

              Perhaps I'll close the poll early and get on with it since we have a good few votes and I haven't added mine yet (because I'm having trouble deciding).

                  OK so I asked this the day I heard Shane Mosley say that Saul Alvarez should have won FOTD over Floyd Mayweather.

                  My immediate reaction was to call him a hater and switch off the video mid-sentence as I didn't see how it could not be Mayweather particularly as he beat Canelo. But then I realised I couldn't actually remember how much of the decade Floyd was fighting so I looked into it and he actually fought Berto in 2015 meaning he only fought for half the decade. So, with that in mind the question becomes, did he do more in 5 years than Canelo or Pacquiao did in 9?

                  For me that just cannot be the case, wins over Berto, Guerrero and Ortiz aren't enough for me to push aside a fighter who fought more than twice the number of fighters and beat the likes of Lara, Golovkin and Kovalev in what has been a fantastic decade for the Mexican.

                  I don't say there are any wrong answers to the question as it is all about opinions but looking at the objective data the hardest thing for me to see is how Pacquaio could get it so I agree with Cableaddict on this one and I was too hasty to shoot down Mosley, in the end it seems I agree.

                  Thanks for your votes, it was great to hear everyone's point of view and arguments too.

                    --- voted For Manny-set unbreakable Ring p4p records-shut out two of the most avoided fighters to open 2010, Clottey/Marg-literally knocked the snot out of young, undefeated wunderkind to close the decade, all while serving in the Filipino congress.

                    No brainer FOTD

                        Yeah I don't think I gave Clottey a round if I remember rightly. Lost to Horn though who later got stopped by Bud and then Zerafa, some say Pac was robbed but I disagree, I thought Horn did enough though only because Pac looked past him and then ended up having to chase the fight.

                            Won 19 fights in the 2000's. Never lost and is down as the Greatest Super Middleweight of all-time.

                              Calzaghe is actually my favourite fighter funnily enough, I mean of all time (which usually draws raised eyebrows lol) I know he wasn't the greatest to ever have laced them up but he's my guy, definitely on the short list for the prize in the previous decade, 100%!

                                Tongue-in-cheek from me, mate. I'm Welsh but I know he's not in the running due to the long list of WBO style contenders. He finished it all strong though and a few good wins at the beginning like Eubank, Mitchell, Brewer and Sheika. But, he was part of Frank Warren's dominant years and plenty of unknown contenders.
