The one weakness is that his boxing style will only serve him well until he reaches a certain age. Because he relies on reflexes for his defensive capabilities, those will diminish as he gets older. There were criticisms from even his own father that Floyd had lost some speed and reflexive response around 2010.

Rocky MarcianoRocky Marciano was the only heavyweight champion who never lost a single fight in his whole career– and, at the time, he seemed the least likely fighter to do that. In many a boxing match, he was battered, bruised and bleeding.

Mike Tyson once branded Floyd Mayweather as “very delusional” after he rated himself higher than Muhammad Ali. … “He’s very delusional,” ‘Iron Mike’ explained. “Listen, if he was anywhere near that realm of great as Muhammad Ali, he’d be able to take his kids to school by himself.
Speed, defense and accuracy: Those attributes have made Floyd Mayweather Jr. boxing’s top pound-for-pound fighter, biggest pay-per-view draw and the most difficult opponent to game-plan against. His ability to land punches while not giving his opponent that same opportunity is the reason why.
