Floyd could be. But honestly, lets please just wait and see him in there with a top welterweight first. I mean we have seen him slightly stunned before, who is to say he could take a good welterweights punch? We are yet to find out. Right now he has not fought the best there is and it sure seems he is not interested in doing so either. Uncles Roger and Jeff had absolutely weak ass chins, maybe Floyd does not have such a great beard on him? Maybe that is why he has steered clear of bigger punchers at welterweight. Yes, at the lower weights he fought anybody. If Floyd beats some top welterweights, easily he is the best. But no one should just automatically be proclaimed the best if you are not willing to fight the best in your own damn division. I mean what is so hard to understand about that? I mean these things should be PROVEN in the ring, not just giving to you by heresay.

As far as the best is right now...I would slightly favor Pac for his more recent impressive activity.But that could soon change.

Oh...I kind of reread your title thread. If you are just asking who is the best boxer right now, then I would say hands down Floyd. His overall boxing skills are amazing. Now as an overall package, I would say his weaknesses are...

1-Lack of real welterweight power.
2-Lack of killer instinct.
3-Lack quality welterweight opponents.
4-Inactivity.
5-Pot shots too much, he used to throw punches before in better combinations earlier in his career.

So IMO just cause you are the best boxer, does not guarantee you will always win. Forrest had tons of more natural and fundamental talent than Mayorga, but look what happened in there two fights. Paez against Grove. Sanders against Wlad. The list goes on and on and on. Thats why I prefer fights to be settled in the ring.

It's got to be Pacquiao, IMO. Mainly because of the opposition that he has faced:

Hatton, De La Hoya, Marquez, Barerra, and Morales. All of which have been ranked highly p4p.


One could argue the same for Mayweather being that he has faced:

Hatton, De La Hoya, Marquez, Corrales, and Castillo.


The difference is that Pac has moved up to make many of these fights. He has also shown the desire to be "risky" and fight top rated fighters in higher divisions. Pac taking a fight against Cotto shows that he really has some balls. These are the type of fighters that I rank highly p4p.

It's got to be Pacquiao right now.

Mayweather hands down is the best BOXER in the sport ! U said Boxer ! Best fighter is probably pac he's a exciteing fighter but the man has no Boxing skills! There is a difference. And there is no one in boxing that can outbox floyd. floyd is a boxer ,stick and move can use the jab effective throws the right like its suppose to be thrown and has the best defense ,hits without getting hit!

Caneman u whooped that guys ass LOL that's tight !

Mayweather is the best boxer in the world but if he doesn't fight one of these welterweights or Pacquiao next then he will be deservingly BASHED!
