I know I haven't posted here in awhile and that I probably will get frowned upon for this but I love debates.

Some say its mythical, some say its fraudulent and others say its a waste of space. I say its a great way for a classic debate in boxing especially when it can change up anytime.

My current top 10 list goes as
1.Mayweather
2.Ward
3.Bradley
4.Froch
5.Marquez
6.Rigondeaux
7.W.Klitschko
8.R.Gonzalez
9.Donaire
10.D.Garcia

I really don't know anymore, I can tell you Mayweather is at the top, Ward out of sheer respect since he needs to hurry up and get back to work. Then Garcia/Bradley, Garcia as the undisputed light welterweight champion of the world, Peterson shouldnt kid himself and just give that belt to him. Bradley since in my eyes he did beat Marquez fairly well. That's Pac and Marquez former number disputably 1 and 2 in the rankings. While am admitting that the Pac fight was very close, I think he should get that rematch to settle it, because in my opinion is could of gone either way.

So

Mayweather
Ward
Bradley/Garcia


Everybody else in particular order:
Klit - looked disgusting in previous fight, people say if he fights actively he'd gas...whose fault is that?

Marquez - May not even be on the list anymore since it seems he wants to retire, but you saw how proud he was, I wonder if his pride would take it if people heavily say that he's ducking Pac and that it was a lucky shot when he has no other options. A guy like him seems relatively easy to goad. I mean look at the way he fights, if you start brawling with him he'll brawl too.

M.Garcia - Very impressive win vs Salido who somehow has a belt back? Someone explain that shit to me.

Rigondeux - sure this guy is sound defensively, and fundamentally, but my god throw a combination once in a while. People say fans don't appreciate him and they won't if you bore them to death, his offense lacks heavily. The donaire fight, people say it was impressive, but it was hard to give rounds either way when people hardly land, or land so infrequently between the rounds.

Cotto - He looked great sure, but was getting caught coming in. Anybody with power ie Canelo, Martinez, will have him on his ass.

Pac - Am a fan still, and he'll beat Rios, and I think he'd keep up with Mayweather for two simple reasons, his stamina and speed. These are what Mayweather opponents lack and heavily. To even have a chance of beating him you can't let him take over after round 6 after all those hits to the body, and he can usually land at will because he is so fast. His chin though is a big ?

Mayweather Jr and Ward at the top, the rest is interchangeable to your specified preferences but I don't see no one overtaking those two guys

Thanks, Hopkins is definitely deserving of cracking the top 10 but I thought his loss vs Dawson, then most knew he was going to win vs Cloud and now he's fighting Murat. His resume and longevity is the only reason he could be on there. I wanted to showcase guys who also deserve to be on there as well, you mentioned Roman. Roman is the man that beat the man that beat the man in their division. Garcia cleaned out the heavy jr. Welter division and just put on a virtuoso performance against Matthysse, one of most hardest punchers in boxing. I can see Roman dropping though since he's been fighting cab drivers lately. What's your list currently like?
