01. Floyd Mayweather Jr 47-0-(26)

Floyd Mayweather Jr has been an exceptional fighter over the years and has fully deserved his No.1 pound for pound ranking but on May 3 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas against Marcos Maidana he finally showed signs of wear and tear. 01. Floyd Mayweather Jr 47-0-(26)
02.Wladimir Klitschko 63-3-(53)

02.Wladimir Klitschko 63-3-(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 63-3-(53)
03. Manny Pacquiao 56-5-2-(38)

03. Manny Pacquiao 56-5-2-(38)

2013 was not been a very good year for Manny Pacquiao. First he lost a highly controversial 12 round decision to Tim Bradley then he was brutally knocked out by Mexican rival Juan Manuel Marquez in the sixth round after being ahead on the judges scorecards. But Pac Man recovered to defeat Brandon Rios and reverse the Bradley loss. For that he deserves full credit for turning his career around. 03. Manny Pacquiao 56-5-2-(38)
04. Gennady Golovkin 31-0-(28)

04. Gennady Golovkin 31-0-(28)

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. 04. Gennady Golovkin 31-0-(28)
05. Guillermo Rigondeaux 14-0-(9)

05. Guillermo Rigondeaux 14-0-(9)

After just 14 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 on December proved that. There are some exciting times ahead for the Cuban born boxer and some very big fights. 05. Guillermo Rigondeaux 14-0-(9)
06. Timothy Bradley 31-1-(12)

06. Timothy Bradley 31-1-(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 on April 12, thus pushing Bradley out of the p4p top 5. 06. Timothy Bradley 31-1-(12)
07. Juan Manuel Marquez 56-7-1-(40)

07. 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. 07. Juan Manuel Marquez 56-7-1-(40)
08. Roman Gonzalez 40-0-(34)

08. Roman Gonzalez 40-0-(34)

Unfortunately for Roman Gonzalez, because he campaigns at one of the smaller weights, his incredible talent can sometimes be over looked. Traditionally anything south of super bantamweight pretty much gets overlooked outside of Mexico, Thailand or Tokyo. 08. Roman Gonzalez 40-0-(34)
09. Mikey Garcia 34-0-(28)

09. Mikey Garcia 34-0-(28)

Mikey Garcia enters the pound for pound top 10 after notching up 34 straight wins. The 26 year-old has impressed since winning the vacant WBO super featherweight title against Juan Manuel Lopez in June,2013. It is only a matter of time before he is involved in a high profile match up. 09. Mikey Garcia 34-0-(28)
10. Sergey Kovalev 26-0-1-(23)

10. Sergey Kovalev 26-0-1-(23)

Sergey Kovalev arrives in the pound for pound top 10 for the time by virtue of his impressive and convincing win over Bernard Hopkins. 10. Sergey Kovalev 26-0-1-(23)
