Inside Fights Boxing Rankings – Oct 2010

Inside Fights Pound-for-Pound Rankings

1. Floyd Mayweather Jr
Last Month: 1
“September couldn’t have been a more humbling month for the pound-for-pound king, who managed to stay in the headlines without even having a fight lined up for the foreseeable future.” – Corey Willinger

2. Manny Pacquiao
Last Month: 2
“Manny continues to fight on while Floyd battles the Nevada judicial system. Antonio Margarito awaits on Nov 13.” – Trent Pusey

3. Paul Williams
Last Month: 3
“Williams has secured the most important fight he could make in taking the rematch with Sergio Martinez. Their first fight was one of 2009’s best.” – CW

4. Juan Manuel Marquez
Last Month: 4
“Marquez returns to the ring in late November in a “cant’ miss” lightweight tilt with Michael Katsidis.” – TP

5. Bernard Hopkins
Last Month: 5
“Hopkins surprised no one when he avoided Chad Dawson for years only to jump at the first chance to fight the man to upend Bad Chad. Hopkins can maintain light heavyweight supremacy with a win over Jean Pascal this December.” – CW

6. Andre Ward
Last Month: 6
“The Super Six wages on as does the current leader, Andre Ward. Andre Dirrell awaits in November, provided they can find somewhere to host the fight.” – TP

7. Wladimir Klitschko
Last Month: 7
“Klitschko made easy work of Sam Peter, as most expected him to, and he’s inching his way up the pound-for-pound list simply because he doesn’t lose. It doesn’t hurt competing in a division with no legitimate threats to your crown.” – CW

8. Timothy Bradley
Last Month: 8
“It looks like Bradley will meet Devon Alexander sometime in early 2011. It’s a terrific fight for light welterweight bragging rights.” – TP

9. Sergio Martinez
Last Month: 10
“Martinez can even the score with Paul Williams next month and likely climb several spots on the rankings with a win.” – CW

10. Shane Mosley
Last Month: 9
“Mosley deserved the win over Sergio Mora last month, but mostly due to Mora’s inactivity. Mosley is hanging on by a thread and is probably standing with one foot already out the door.” – TP
