01. Floyd Mayweather Jr 44-0-(26)
What can you say about Floyd? The way in which he completely dominated Saul Alvarez on Sept 14 was a pleasure to watch. Even at the age of 36 there is no sign of decline. It seems Floyd will stay the pound for pound king for as long as he chooses.
02. Andre Ward 27-0-(14)
Andre Ward proved he belonged in the pound for pound top 10 when dominated the Super Six Tournament from start to finish. The Oakland, California native proved he is the unrivalled No.1 in one of the most competitive divisions in boxing and he once again proved his class on September 8 when he took out the very capable Chad Dawson.It looks like he will have to ether move up in weight or convince one of the middleweight champs to do so.
03. Sergio Martinez 51-2-2-(28)
At the age of 37 there is no doubt that Sergio Martinez is in decline and that was never more evident than his last performance against Britain’s Martin Murray. What was supposed to be a memorable home coming in front of his own fans in Buenos Aires nearly became a disaster when he was knocked down twice. He stays at No.3 for now but lets see how he gets on.
04. Adrien Broner 27-0-(22)
With an unbeaten record of 27-0-(22), and just 23 years old Adrien Broner has a bright future ahead of him. Add in the charismatic flamboyancy and arrogance of a young Floyd Mayweather Jr and you have the makings of the next big boxing superstar.
05. Timothy Bradley 31-0-(12)
Timothy Bradley may have been involved in another controversial fight whilst out-pointing Juan Manuel Marquez on October 12 but at least this time the verdict looked more realistic unlike his points win over Manny Pacquiao. The Marquez win takes him up to No.5 and just maybe next time out he could get a crack at Floyd Mayweather Jr to see who is No.1 at 147lbs.
