Mayweather is Still #1 July 12, 2007Posted by Marquis Chapman in Boxing, Sports.
ESPN writer Dan Rafael released his top ten pound for pound fighters today, and it’s no surprise that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is at the top. Mayweather remains undefeated with his most recent victory being against De La Hoya. De La Hoya didn’t make the top ten but came in at #12.
Reports have surfaced that Mayweather is coming out of retirement to fight Ricky Hatton after Hatton has been talking a lot of trash about the welterweight champ these days. Many think this will be a fight that will end with Mayweather winning hands down, but will be a fight that many will pay to see.
Many have also wondered why Mayweather hasn’t shown any interests in fighting Sugar Shane Mosley, who is another fighter that has had some bad things to say about Mayweather. This seems to be the fight the fans would want to see more and would probably give Mayweather a bigger payday.
Whoever Mayweather fights in the upcoming months, I see Mayweather being unchallenged by both Hattan and Mosely, and once again proving that he just can’t be beat.
