01. Floyd Mayweather Jr 48-0-(26)

Floyd Mayweather Jr secured his top spot beyond any doubt on May 2 when he convincingly outscored main rival Manny Pacquiao over 12 rounds in Las Vegas. ’The Best Ever’ now has no more rivals and nothing more to prove to anyone. 01. Floyd Mayweather Jr 48-0-(26)

02.Wladimir Klitschko 64-3-(53)

Wladimir Klitschko may not be the most exciting boxer on the planet and his safety first style is not to everyone’s taste but the fact is he is very good at his job and over the last five or six years no one has come close to defeating him. 02.Wladimir Klitschko 64-3-(53)
03. Gennady Golovkin 32-0-(29)

03. Gennady Golovkin 32-0-(29)

Much like his middleweight rival Sergio Martinez, Gennady Golovkin has bloomed late as a boxer. At the age of 31 the Kazakhstan born boxer did not really come to prominence until he knocked out Milton Nunez to claim the WBA interim middleweight title in August 2010. 03. Gennady Golovkin 32-0-(29)
04. Roman Gonzalez 42-0-(36)

04. Roman Gonzalez 42-0-(36)

Unfortunately for Roman Gonzalez, because he campaigns at one of the smaller weights, his incredible talent can sometimes be overlooked. Traditionally anything south of super bantamweight pretty much gets overlooked outside of Mexico, Thailand or Tokyo. 04. Roman Gonzalez 42-0-(36)
05. Manny Pacquiao 57-6-2-(38)

06. Timothy Bradley 31-1-1-(12)

Timothy Bradley may have been involved in another controversial fight whilst out-pointing Juan Manuel Marquez in October 2013 but at least this time the verdict looked more realistic unlike his points win over Manny Pacquiao. However,Pacquiao made no mistake in out-pointing Bradley in the rematch thus pushing Bradley out of the p4p top 5. 06. Timothy Bradley 31-1-1-(12)
07. Guillermo Rigondeaux 15-0-(10)

07. Guillermo Rigondeaux 15-0-(10)

After just 15 fights classy Guillermo Rigondeaux is fast establishing himself as a seasoned pound for pound top 10 performer. His dominating 12 round shutout points win over Joseph Agbeko in December 2013 proved that. 07. Guillermo Rigondeaux 15-0-(10)
08. Sergey Kovalev 27-0-1-(24)

08. Sergey Kovalev 27-0-1-(24)

09. Juan Manuel Marquez 56-7-1-(40)

At age 41 Juan Manuel Marquez still has a place in the pound for pound top 10 despite losing a razor thin split decision defeat against Timothy Bradley in October 2013. Marquez does not become a bad fighter overnight but he must choose his next opponent very carefully. 09. Juan Manuel Marquez 56-7-1-(40)
10. Terence Crawford 26-0-0 (18)

10. Terence Crawford 26-0-0 (18)
