I'm sure Floyd felt like he wouldn't be able to make the money he makes now had it not been for guys like Frazier. Personally, I think Floyd is awesome for stepping up like this.
Agreed, while I've openly admitted that I don't like him, it's an awesome gesture and the guy is not an idiot, without Ali/Frazier taking boxing to another level, it's unlikely the sport would be as big as it is now. Guys like Ali/Frazier, Tyson, and De La Hoya elevated it and Floyd knows this.
