Despite being born into an economically disadvantaged family, Floyd Mayweather, has become an accomplished American professional boxing promoter and retired professional boxer.
Floyd Mayweather has many laurels to his name with countless achievements to his credit as well.
The champion competed from 1996 to 2007, 2009 to 2010, 2011 to 2015, and made a one-fight comeback in 2017.
During his career, he held multiple world titles in five weight classes and the lineal championship in four weight classes, twice at welterweight, and retired with an undefeated record.
In 2016, Mayweather was ranked by ESPN as the greatest boxer, pound for pound, of the last 25 years. He remains BoxRec's number one fighter of all time, pound for pound, as well as the greatest welterweight of his era.
Here are twenty quotes from the legend that would inspire you to pursue your dreams and ensure that they materialise.
