Pound-for-Pound Update 6-12-14

With Miguel Cotto's impressive dismantling of Sergio Martinez on Saturday, significant changes have been made to the Saturday Night Boxing pound-for-pound list. Cotto looked terrific in the fight; however, there was some difficulty in finding the best place to rank him in that he has still lost recent fights to Floyd Mayweather and Austin Trout. I settled on the #12 position for him. 

After Sergio Martinez's performance on Saturday, he no longer warrants a place on the SNB Top-20 Fighters list. Previously, the number-three fighter in the Rankings, Martinez was not competitive whatsoever against Cotto. He was ruled down four times in the fight and on my card he didn't even win a round. At 39, it's safe to say that his days of being an elite fighter have come to an end.  The updated Saturday Night Boxing pound-for-pound list follows: 
  1. Floyd Mayweather
  2. Andre Ward
  3. Wladimir Klitschko
  4. Manny Pacquiao
  5. Juan Manuel Marquez
  6. Tim Bradley
  7. Guillermo Rigondeaux
  8. Carl Froch
  9. Roman Gonzalez
  10. Bernard Hopkins
  11. Adonis Stevenson
  12. Miguel Cotto
  13. Danny Garcia
  14. Anselmo Moreno
  15. Nonito Donaire
  16. Juan Estrada
  17. Takashi Uchiyama
  18. Mikey Garcia
  19. Gennady Golovkin
  20. Shinsuke Yamanaka
