Mayweather vs Guerrero: Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Sugar Ray Leonard, and Oscar De La Hoya on Floyd's greatness

Four athletic legends discuss the greatness of Floyd Mayweather.

Sugar Ray Leonard

Floyd Mayweather, I mean, you may like him, you may hate him, or whatever. But you know what, he's a great fighter, he's a great champion. He's always ready. You can never catch him off-guard.

Kobe Bryant

It's the greatness of what he's done, how he's mastered his craft, that separates him from the others.

Magic Johnson

He's the best boxer on the planet. He's an entertainer.

Oscar De La Hoya

He beats you outside the ring first, before even throwing one punch.

Kobe Bryant

There have been boxers that had great personalities, but they all got their asses whooped.

Oscar De La Hoya

But the fact that he knew how to get inside my head took me out of my game plan. I wanted to knock his head off.

Magic Johnson

Then he's the best defensive in all of boxing, as well.

He knew how to counter-punch me, he know how to take his time, throw combinations, and beat me to the punch. That's what he's best at.

He's the epitome of a champion.

Whether you wanna see him lose or you wanna see him win, you're watching history, one way or the other.
