Here are the most popular boxing articles in 2013 from Ringnews24. 1. Floyd Mayweather drops WBC welterweight title as Pacquiao becomes No.1 contender I have been informed that current pound for pound linchpin, Floyd 'Money' Mayweather Jr, 45-0 (KO26) has dropped his WBC welterweight world title due to the fact that Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao 55-5 (KO38) has now been installed as the number one contender for the pound for pound number one fighter on the planet.*

Manny Pacquiao is the No.1 contender for the WBC as per their December rankings.

He is indeed the #1, NOT however the mandatory challenger. Floyd currently has no mandatory and won't for a while with his last mandatory defense coming last May against Robert Guerrero.

--- There's no difference between a mandatory and #1 but for a few keystrokes that can be delivered 24/7/365 at any moment.

 

I guess Floydy made history when he faced his first WBC mandatory this year, eh? Dunno, maybe he faced another mandatory back in the 2nd millennium. All Manny has to do is beat Berto before breaking his Arum contract to prostrate himself into accepting the lamb's share of the purse with no PPV claims before Floydy fight is his is the jist of this news.

 

So, new news same as the old news, just a different timeline of delivery.

Quite a bit of difference, and a difference that changes from Org to Org (the WBO for example have a rule that allows ANY fighter to request to be their mandatory). Wanheng, who I believe has been #1 ranked at 105lbs since Denver Cuello lost to Zhong has still not gotten his title shot and when Cuello was "mandatory" it didn't prevent the WBC from allowing Zhong to fight for the vacant belt.

 

Floydy hasn't fought at all this year.
