Floyd Mayweather Jr never lost in his 21-year professional career, winning world titles in five divisions.
Floyd Mayweather Jr has been named as the greatest boxer of all-time – with Muhammad Ali fourth.
In the rankings compiled by respected boxing website Box Rec, the undefeated US welterweight headed the list from former rival Manny Pacquiao and Argentinian middleweight Carlos Monzon.
Ali, who used to refer to himself as “The Greatest” was listed at No 4 as the top heavyweight.
Unsurprisingly, Mayweather agreed with the rankings.
“Numbers don’t lie and boxrec told the truth,” Mayweather wrote on his social media accounts.

Mayweather, 42, has won world titles in five different weight classes over a 21-year career. That earned him 2256 points on the Box Rec rankings, way ahead of Pacquiao (1629).
The two fought each other in 2015 with Mayweather winning.
Monzon, who died in 1995, was the undisputed middleweight championship for seven years. He was sentenced to 11 years in prison for killing his wife 1988.
Ali was in fourth spot ahead of Bernard Hopkins, Sugar Ray Robinson and Joe Louis.
