By Cliff Rold

It’s been a few months and there are plenty of results in, more than enough to lay out the pound-for-pound landscape for the last time in 2012.

Only one thing was certain: Manny Pacquiao must fall.

Juan Manuel Marquez made sure of it by literally making Pacquiao do just that.  Did he have much room to rise though?  With Floyd Mayweather holding a lopsided twelve round win over Marquez, not really.  But how far does Pacquiao fall?  Is one loss to a fellow modern great remove him from the top five?

The top ten?

Andre Ward maintains his place atop the list with the most change coming in the back half.     

Besides Pacquiao, former list members Miguel Cotto and Anselmo Moreno both suffered defeats.  Abner Mares joins the top ten off a victory over the latter.  Moreno’s loss was highly competitive and may have kept him around if not for the red-hot run of Brian Viloria at Flyweight who also joins the top ten.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll]I could understand this argument if it had been like a year since these guys fought. But Ward just fought 3 months ago.[/QUOTE] If Ward's shoulder injury keeps him out close to a year, I'd find this more compelling.

[QUOTE=GAR1680-Boxing]Honestly, I don’t think Ward and Mayweather belong on the P4P list. Why? BECAUSE THEY DON’T FIGHT OFTEN ENOUGH! [/QUOTE] I could understand this argument if it had been like a year since these guys fought. But Ward just fought 3 months ago.

comment by GAR1680-Boxing, on 12-31-2012
Honestly, I don’t think Ward and Mayweather belong on the P4P list. Why? BECAUSE THEY DON’T FIGHT OFTEN ENOUGH! Both fought only once in 2012. How can you call someone the best fighter in the world when they fight once a year? (More-so in Floyd’s case, who hasn’t fought twice in a year since 2007...
