Floyd Mayweather gatecrashes press conference to declare himself the GOAT in chaotic scenes
| Last updated
Floyd Mayweather gatecrashed a young fighter's press conference to declare himself the GOAT of boxing following Canelo Alvarez's win over Jermell Charlo.
Canelo dominated Charlo as he defended his undisputed super-middleweight world titles, winning a lopsided decision in Las Vegas.
Undercard action saw Curmel Moton, just 17, make his professional debut as he knocked out Ezequiel Flores in the very first round.
Moton, who is widely regarded as one of the best talents in America, spoke to the assembled media after his victory - alongside his promoter Mayweather.
But the budding starlet's press conference was hijacked by the former pound-for-pound boxing king as he went on a rant about being the greatest of all time.
The 46-year-old took exception to a reporter calling him 'arguably one of the greatest of all time' as he hijacked Moton's presser to make his feelings clear.
"What are we rating ourselves on?" He said.
"In the least amount of fights, you know, I didn’t have to have 70 fights, or 150 fights, 300 fights."
The five-weight world champion added: "Did I or did I not beat the most world champions? In the least amount of fights? Who got the highest gate? Who made the most money? Who was the most accurate? It’s basically saying that..."
The reporter agreed with everything 'Money' said and ultimately rephrased his question to refer to the 50-0 fighter as the 'greatest of all time'.
Is Mayweather the GOAT of boxing? Let us know what you think.
