By Matthew Hurley: Some major shakeups occurred in the Secoundsout pound-for-pound list for the month of May. After Floyd Mayweather Jr. defeated Manny Pacquiao on the 2nd Floyd obviously remains at #1 while Manny drops to #5. Wladimir Klitschko is now at #2 while Gennady Golovkin moves to #3 – although some might feel he and Roman Gonzalez, now at #4 should be switched. But the mythical pound-for-pound list has always been subjective.
Carl Froch, after being stripped of his title and losing out on a potential matchup with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., who lost badly to Andrzej Fonfara, is now in limbo so he has been dropped. Though were this a top 15 he would be at #11. He has been replaced by Terence Crawford at #10.
Other than that the names remain the same.
The Secondsout pound-for-pound list for May is as follows:
1 Floyd Mayweather Jr. 48-0-0 (26)
