Ranking The Best Fighters In The World
Welterweight 52 3 2 (38)
Last Year s Ranking: 1
Status Report: As most of us expected, Pacquiao made mincemeat out of Antonio Margarito, who not so long ago everyone was calling the most feared fighter in the world. It wasn t Pacquiao s most impressive achievement of the past year; the bludgeoning of Miguel Cotto (KO 12) in November of 2009 gets the nod there, and getting points too is the shutout he pitched against the highly competent if reluctant Joshua Clottey (W 12). Along with everyone else we would have preferred the year ended with a superfight against the next guy on this list, but you can t have everything. As it is, Pacquiao comes awfully close.
Future: Shane Mosey on May 7. Despicable.
