Who Is Boxing's Pound-For-Pound King?
Let's settle this debate right now! Manny Pacquiao is currently # 1 on the Boxing Ledger's pound-for-pound list. Floyd Mayweather Jr. would still be at # 1 had he not retired. No one has ever defeated Floyd. If Floyd Mayweather Jr. is victorious over Juan Manuel Marquez on July 18th, he will reclaim the # 1 spot on this site's pound-for-pound list. How could another fighter be atop the pound-for-pound list if Floyd returns to beat Marquez on July 18th? Marquez gave Pacquiao two tough fights and the decisions could have gone either way. A victory over Marquez should end this discussion until Mayweather and Pacquiao potientially meet in the ring!
