Pound-for-Pound Update 5-22-14

With Juan Manuel Marquez's definitive win over Mike Alvarado, he moves up a slot in the Saturday Night Boxing pound-for-pound rankings, taking the #6 position. Tim Bradley moves down one spot to #7. Even though Bradley beat Marquez last year, Marquez's most recent performance bests Bradley's competitive loss to Manny Pacquiao. With the inconclusive round robin between Pacquiao, Bradley and Marquez, there is no ideal placement for the three fighters. Each boxer has recently beaten one and lost to another. The complete rankings are below:
  1. Floyd Mayweather
  2. Andre Ward
  3. Sergio Martinez
  4. Wladimir Klitschko
  5. Manny Pacquiao
  6. Juan Manuel Marquez
  7. Tim Bradley
  8. Guillermo Rigondeaux
  9. Carl Froch
  10. Roman Gonzalez
  11. Bernard Hopkins
  12. Adonis Stevenson
  13. Danny Garcia
  14. Nonito Donaire
  15. Anselmo Moreno
  16. Juan Estrada
  17. Takashi Uchiyama
  18. Mikey Garcia
  19. Gennady Golovkin
  20. Shinsuke Yamanaka

  2. I guess this ranking is about what happens on paper!!! But real talk Provodnikov is the most feared 140 pounder ask Marquez!and did to Bradley what Marquez would never be able to do!!! So he needs to at leasttt in the top 20!!!! And Froch way to high on this list just got his a$$ handed to him by Groves! All he did was beat a hype job Bute that's it!!!

  3. Real talk Provodnikov is the most feared 140 pounder ask Marquez! What he did to Bradley Marquez will never be able to do! And he destroyed Alvarado! Who as you say just helped Marquez come up a spot, so Provo at least needs to be in this top 20!!!!
