Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and the Best Boxers in the World (2015)

The Fight Of The Century: Manny Pacquiao Vs. Floyd Mayweather

The Fight Of The Century: Manny Pacquiao Vs. Floyd Mayweather

Hard to believe. It’s the fifth go-round for Sports List of the Day‘s annual look at the best boxers in the world by weight class, courtesy boxrec.com.

Wladimir Klitschko maintains his hold on the heavyweight crown for the second year in a row, while a man much in the media lately, “Money” Floyd Mayweather, Jr., remains the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world for a fourth straight time.

The 63-3 Klitschko’s next fight will be April 25 against Bryant Jennings (19-0) at Madison Square Garden.

But, really, who cares too much about that? The most anticipated fight of the year, decade and probably this century is a week after that. In fact, the match is being called “The Fight of the Century.”

At last, the undefeated Mayweather (47-0) will be facing off against 57-5-2 Manny Pacquiao, another four-time (and consecutive) pound-for-pound title holder (2008-2011), on May 2 at the MGM Grand. Can’t wait for that one.
