I go with Calzaghe even though he wasn't able to complete up to 2010. Undefeated. Beat a real living legend.

Mayweather. Look at his fights from 2001 on up. Just because you have punching power and your fights are more "exciting" to watch (casual fan) does not make you the boxer of the decade. Look at the type of competition that each fighter fought in their career. Just because you are media friendly and a feel good story does not make a person fighter of the year. Its like Dennis Roddman being elected in the basketball hall of fame, look at his states and the level of basketball that he played and not the popularity contest and the off the court chaos. Fighter of the Decade rewards a fighter who has displayed mastery inside the ring, not a hype job created by the media.

Hopkins wins from 2000-2010

Jones Jr
Ornelas
Pavlik
Wright
Tarver
DLH
Allen
Joppy
Hakkar
Trinidad
Holmes
Echols
Vanderpool

Mayweather wins 2000-2010

Mosley
Marquez
Hatton
DLH
Baldomir
Judah
Mitchell
Gatti
Bruseles
Corley
N'dou
Sosa
Castillo
Castillo
Hernandez
Corrales
Augustus
Vargas


When put like this, i have to say Mayweather's wins are as impressive as Hopkins. Hopkins best wins are Trinidad, DLH, Tarver, Pavlik, and Wright. Mayweather's are Corrales, Castillo 2x, Judah, DLH, Hatton, JMM, and Mosley. I think the better resume goes to Mayweather, even Mayweather's secondary opponents outweigh Hopkins'. Before i put this together i favored Hopkins but now i lean towards PBF, Hopkins gets no credit for his losses

I don't know. It's obviously a contest between Pacquiao, Mayweather, and Hopkins. Obviously, a Pac-Mayweather fight will go a long way to helping posterity decide who's name was writ most boldly in this era. Hopkins has marks against him because he wasn't as popular, but he's certainly been just as extraordinary, and perhaps even more extraordinary considering his age and his lack of latent physical talent. This "best of the decade" stuff is just journalist bullshit. doesn't mean a thing.

I'm not sure if this is an actual reward, but shouldn't the decade be 2000-2009? Since in previous decades it should be something like 1980-89, 1990-99... anyway, from 2000-2009 hands-down goes to Mayweather.
