He will retired undefeated. He's just too good of a defensive fighter. Too fast. He controls his weight class

He's as boring as any I've seen that have been named pound for pound greatest today.

Much rather watch a Kessler, Adamek, Pacquiao, or any number of others before I would ever line Mayweather's pockets via PPV.

Just like art. You have to understand boxing, in order to appreciate it. Don't like money may? Don't watch him, and don't talk about him. He must be doing something right, I guarantee he's not talking about his haters.

Art? Yeah, "pisschrist" was also considered art. You can have a firm understanding of boxing and still not appreciate his style or methods of selecting opponents. To assume someone doesn't understand boxing simply because they find him boring is rather short sighted.

Whatever you say. I'd just rather see a figher/boxer (like Adamek, Klitschko(s), Kessler, Pacquiao, etc.) than just a straight defensive boxer. He's just not exciting for me to watch. Even Broner, who is very similar in style, is more fun to watch for me.

I agree Mayweather will retire undefeated

His style is not making Boxing popular in the long run. The casual fan quickly loses interest in his fights.

Floyd's style only benefits him, his legacy, and fans that love a technical boxing match.
