Muhammad Ali is the greatest boxer ever, and he wants everyone to know that, including Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Ali tweeted a picture of himself from his fighting days with the caption: “Don’t you forget, I am the greatest!”

The tweet came after Floyd Mayweather had claimed in an interview with the ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith that he’s better than Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Leonard.
“No one can ever brainwash me to make me believe that Sugar Ray Robinson and Muhammad Ali was better than me,” he said. “No one could ever brainwash me and tell me that.”
Two-time World Heavyweight Champion George Foreman had also sided with Mayweather, saying, “Pound for pound, Floyd is better than me and Muhammad Ali ever were,” he said. “This is a better generation by far,” Foreman said. “They’re smarter, they’re stronger, they’re overall just better fighters.”
Ali says no.
