    Does the following sentence sound natural to you?

    There would be few people alive who met as many people that I met.

    Contex: Mr. A thinks that he has met so many peoples.

    There are few people in this world who have met as many people as I have.

    No, I'm afraid it doesn't, Qadri.
    We don't say "as many ... that."
    We would say "as many ... as."

    A side note: I would also say "has met as many people as I have met"
    just as in your explanation you say "Mr. A thinks that he has met ..."
