Floyd Mayweather took a shot at his boxing rivals by posting a picture of BoxRec's ratings on social media with the caption 'greatest of all time'.
The American welterweight won all 50 of his professional fights over a 21-year career, and he reminded the world about it.
The 44-year-old amassed 2256 points according to the system, a long way clear of second-placed Pacquiao on 1629.
And back in 2019, he proudly let his Instagram followers know: "Numbers don't lie and Boxrec told the truth. It is what it is."
Mayweather memorably fought against Conor McGregor in August 2017, when he won his 50th professional bout, and recently took on American YouTube personality Logan Paul in an exhibition match.
He beat rival Pacquiao in 2015 in a long-awaited clash between the two men considered to be the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world at the time.
Floyd Mayweather responded to the argument that he didn't fight Manny Pacquiao in his prime...
