Boxing’s Baddest – P4P

1) Floyd Mayweather


It kills me to place him atop and as I predicted he would cruise through the overrated Mosley bout, BUT its extremely fair to say that he will win against Manny Pacquiao when or if they meet.  He has benefited tremendously from matches against under-sized, bloated and declining opponents alike.

2) Manny Pacquiao


He’s a fight fan’s fighter and never disappoints. Though he’s too small and gets hit too often to think he can defeat Mayweather.

3) Sergio Martinez

Schooled Kelly Pavlik to win the middleweight title and was denied a decision I believed he deserved against Paul Williams.  On paper it was a loss, but in boxing, fighter’s loses aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on half the time.  Martinez was the better fighter in both cases and is on the verge of becoming a star.

4) Paul Williams


The crafty southpaw got away with a decision against Martinez then had his match against Kermit Cintron end in truly bizarre fashion.  He passed on a rematch with Cintron which is puzzling considering their match was just getting started when it abruptly ended.  The bottom line is he was absurdly awarded a win when no contest would be in order just about anywhere else on the planet.  He received another win he didn’t deserve and apparently that’s good enough for Paul Williams.  Then he wonders why nobody cares him.

5) Juan Manuel Marquez


Say what you will about Marquez fading but the fact he remains he has fought the best on his way up the scale.  Often against younger, fresher fighters.  That can’t be said about other fighters such as Mayweather and Chad Dawson.
