Pound For Pound Boxer - Who's Number 1?

Pound For Pound Boxer - Who's Number 1?

There are some great boxers hovering around the pound for pound best boxer spot at the moment, but who is number 1? Well, all people have their own opinion. Any boxer in the pound for pound top 20 is an excellent boxer, and all boxers to have the courage to climb through the ropes and fight deserve credit.

I am going to list the top 5 Pound for Pound boxers, all superb fighters in their own way.

In 1st place, Pound for Pound best, i would say it has to be Floyd Mayweather Jr: Some people don't agree, or might say because he has said he's retired he should not be in the rankings anymore, but i disagree. Floyd Mayweather Jr has the best skills out of them all. His ring craft and masterful defense is breath taking to anyone that really knows boxing, and i think he deserves the number one spot for now.

Second in the pound for pound best boxers is Manny Pacquiao: This little guy has the heart of a lion and hand speed that most boxers just can't handle. Ask De La Hoya, Manny Pacquiao is one hell of a fighter, such a modest guy too, thats why i like him so much.

Pound for pound 3rd place: Joe Calzaghe, never lost as a pro so far. Joe Calzaghe does have the best boxing record out of them all. Everyone that knows boxing knows, to stay unbeaten for such a long time takes some skill, determination and focus. Joe Calzaghe has always been a true champion, when Lacy came, people thought Joe Would lose, same with Kessler, B-Hop. Joe Calzaghe always finds a way to win. He is definately one of the best in the world. People say he can't punch, but if thats the case, doesn't that make him ever better considering how far he has gone and never lost a Pro fight? And he can't even punch...

Pound for Pound 4th place is: Ricky Hatton: Everyone thought Ricky Hatton Would lose to Paulie Malignaggi, how wrong they were. I think people forget how good Ricky Hatton is, He has lost only once, to the one and only p4p number 1 - Floyd Mayweather. Ricky Hatton deserves 4th place. Ricky Hatton could be pound for pound best boxer, 1st place, if he beats Manny Pacquiao, or has a rematch with Floyd Mayweather.

Pound for Pound 5th place, in my opinion is Bernard Hopkins: Hopkins really is a throw-back, his ring craft is with out any doubt at all the best in the world. Look how old he is and he's beating young up and coming fighters like Kelly Pavlik with ease. Some people may thing his style is boring, but that's the way he fights and in my opinion he does well, you never see him cut or knocked out. Bernard Hopkins is a very very clever fighter, he does a good job in terms of what boxing is meant to be about - hit and not be hit.

I would like your opinions on who you think are the top 5 Pound for Pound boxers in the world today...Comment Below.

This post is outdated now. The author would agree now i rekon that manny pacquaio is in first place. look at what he has done in recent fights.

PAIXEN said...

NO ONE CAN DENY THE POWER OF THE PACMAN. HE IS THE POUND FOR POUND KING NUMBER ONE AT THIS TIME. TRUE PINOY POWER HOUSE.

EVERYONE WANTS PACQUIAO VS MAYWEATHER. I HOPE FOR THAT FIGHT TO HAPPEN THIS YEAR 2010.

FLOYD WILL LOSE THE 0 AGAINST PACQUIAOOOO

slavador sanchezes nephew is a fighter. If he can become even half of what his uncles was that would be something

suited up said...

my p4p top 5 are as follows

pacman

mayweather

arthur abraham

shane mosley

vitali klitschko

DJ Skank said...

Suited im feeling it. Vitali should be in the top five for the pound for pound world rankings. Have you seen the way he moves around the ring. He's a HEAVYWEIGHT! ( a big one! ) That moves like a middleweight. Still winning fights, still holds the WBC, i repeat STILL HOLDS THE WBC Heavyweight title, the BEST title in the world bar none. No fighter has been able to beat him and he has the highest knockout ratio in boxing history.

People should respect vitali's skills a bit more

vitali is the heavyweight version of a boxing bruce lee

bruce lee hahahaaaaaaaa
