An old Bob Arum quote on Floyd Mayweather Junior: Spotlight on Nostalgic Promotion Theory

"I say this, today, to you-and I really believe it, and it's true- that since Ali, there hasn't been a better fighter, better boxer, than this kid, Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather. This young man has the technique and the ability which puts him, in my book, ahead of such greats as Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, Marvin Hagler, and all the other great fighters that I've seen in my career. But there is nobody that combines all the skills of Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather."
