Pound For Pound Update: Mayweather Still Undefeated
By Cliff Rold
There have been changes in the months since the last update but one thing remains the same: Floyd Mayweather is still undefeated.
It was closer this time though.
Mayweather had his hands full with rugged Marcos Maidana in their Welterweight unification tilt and had to call on all his skills to forge his latest win. Was the competitive contest enough to move the top slot?
Below Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao moves up on the force of his win over Timothy Bradley while Bradley’s loss sees him slip a spot behind the best fighter in the world most of the US isn’t seeing.
In the coming weeks, several members of this list will go to scratch. By the next time an update appears, things could looks quite different than they do today.
For now, this is your top ten.

Good to see Gonzalez get his dues. I'd rather him be that high rather than not on there at all tbhPost a Comment - View More User Comments (53)
