Manny Pacquiao lays face down on the mat after being knocked out in the sixth round as Juan Manuel Marquez celebrates during their welterweight bout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on December 8, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
1 - Floyd Mayweather. The only knock against him is that he has only fought four times in the five years.
2 - Juan Manuel Marquez. Just stopped the former P4P king.
3 - Andre Ward. Cleaned out his division and stopped the Lightheavyweight Champion
4 - Nonito Donaire. Just captured his lineal title. The Golden Boy/Top Rank feud is preventing a fight with Abner Mares, but I think he’d stop Mares. Don’t even bring Rigondeaux into the conversation.
5 - Sergio Martinez. I went back and forth with who deserved a higher spot between him and Nonito. I chose Nonito because he’s been beating beltholders recently and he’s been looking good throughout it, while Martinez has been beating top ten guys and he had the scare against Chavez.
6 - Manny Pacquiao. I’m not gonna say he’s lost back to back fights because he clearly beat Bradley imo. He just got stopped, but he was my P4P up til then.
7 - Timothy Bradley. That fluke ass decision hurt him more than anything. He looked iffy in his first appearance on a BIG stage and then he got a bullshit decision against Manny. He could give most guys at 140 or 147 a run for their money.
8 - Wladimir Klitchsko - Best heavyweight in a terrible era.
9 - Vitali Klitchsko - I think he’d stop Wlad if they ever fought but they won’t so it is what it is.
The 10th is a tossup between a bunch of people
Leo Santa Cruz - Looking like a bull
Abner Mares - Looking like a lil Miguel Cotto recently
Adrien Broner - The way he destroyed DeMarco, its clear he’ll beat anybody at 135 and he can give anybody at 140 a run for they money
Danny Garcia - Stopped Khan and did what he was supposed to do against Morales.
Robert Guerrero - He finds a way to win every trip.
Austin Trout - Good win against Cotto makes him a player.
