POUND-FOR-POUND TOP 10

 

Manny Pacquiao

 

1. Manny Pacquiao

 

- Welterweight

Philippines (50-3-2, 38KOs)

Pacquiao destroyed Miguel Cotto in Las Vegas to cement his place at the top of the pound-for-pound tree. Floyd Mayweather should be next, and what a fight that could be.

 

Floyd Mayweather

 

2. Floyd Mayweather

 

- Welterweight

United States (40-0, 25KOs)

'Pretty Boy' returned from a 21-month hiatus with a bang, outclassing Mexico's Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas to raise the prospect of a mouth-watering clash with Manny Pacquiao.

 

Bernard Hopkins

 

3. Bernard Hopkins

 

- Light-heavyweight

United States (50 wins, 5 losses, 1 draw, 32KOs)

Hopkins is still churning out wins six years shy of his 50th birthday, and now wants to fight Britain's world heavyweight champion David Haye. Fellow American Chad Dawson is more likely.

 

Shane Mosley

 

4. Shane Mosley

 

- Welterweight

United States (46-5, 39KOs)

Mosley outclassed Antonio Margarito at the age of 37 and will fight young pretender and WBC champion Andre Berto in January. No-one will be surprised if the old man comes out on top.

 

Juan Manuel Marquez

 

5. Juan Manuel Marquez

 

- Lightweight

Mexico (50-5-1, 37KOs)

Marquez was destroyed by the returning Floyd Mayweather in September, but size was clearly a factor. Ricky Hatton says Marquez is top of his wish list, that fight could happen in 2010.

 

Miguel Angel Cotto

 

6. Miguel Cotto

 

- Welterweight

Puerto Rico (34-2, 27KOs)

Was demolished by Manny Pacquiao, and the suspicion is he has been damaged goods since his defeat by Antonio Margarito, who was subsequently banned, last year.

 

Paul Williams

 

7. Paul Williams

 

- Middleweight

United States (38-1, 27KOs)

Williams was involved in one of the best fights of 2009 against Sergio Martinez, and surely two-belt world champion and fellow American Kelly Pavlik must be next.

 

Israel Vazquez

 

8. Israel Vazquez

 

- Super-bantamweight

Mexico (44-4, 32KOs)

Vazquez reclaimed his WBC belt from Rafael Marquez in 2007 and nicked the rubber last March. Guess what? He's fighting Marquez for a fourth time in May.

 

Chad Dawson

 

9. Chad Dawson

 

- Light-heavyweight

United States (29-0, 17KOs)

What Dawson lacks in box-office, he makes up for in ring smarts. Beat former world champions Antonio Tarver and Glen Johnson in 2009 - surely Bernard Hopkins is next?

 

Juan Manuel Lopez

 

10. Juan Manuel Lopez

 

- Featherweight

Puerto Rico (27-0, 24KOs)

The unbeaten former super-bantamweight world champion has amassed a formidable record and he will step up to challenge WBO featherweight champ Steven Luevano in January.
