FLOYD MAYWEATHER has revealed his top five favourite fighters of all time and, unsurprisingly, placed himself at the top of the list.

Speaking to ESPN Deportes, Mayweather was given a list of ten fighters to choose a top five from, and they were: Sugar Ray Robinson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Joe Louis, Henry Armstrong, Muhammad Ali, Pernell Whitaker, Floyd Mayweather, Roberto Duran, Julio Cesar Chavez, Rocky Marciano.

After claiming he would not be biased, he chose himself for the top spot and said: “He’s beaten more world champions than any other fighter here. He’s done it in a shorter period of time than any other fighter up here and he’s done it with less fights than any other fighter up here.
