01. Floyd Mayweather Jr 46-0-(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 46-0-(26)
02. Andre Ward 27-0-(14)

02. Andre Ward 27-0-(14)

Andre Ward proved he belonged in the pound for pound top 10 when dominated the Super Six Tournament from start to finish. The Oakland, California native proved he is the unrivalled No.1 in one of the most competitive divisions in boxing and he once again proved his class on September 8 when he took out the very capable Chad Dawson.It looks like he will have to ether move up in weight or convince one of the middleweight champs to do so. 02. Andre Ward 27-0-(14)
03.Wladimir Klitschko 62-3-(52)

03.Wladimir Klitschko 62-3-(52)

Wladimir Klitschko may not be the most exciting boxer on the planet and his safety first style is not to everyone’s taste but he 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. That trend continued in Germany on April 26 when he smashed Alex Leapai into fifth round submission. 03.Wladimir Klitschko 62-3-(52)
04. Manny Pacquiao 56-5-2-(38)

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

It has not been a very good time for Manny Pacquiao. First he loses 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. 04. Manny Pacquiao 56-5-2-(38)
05. Gennady Golovkin 30-0-(27)

05. Gennady Golovkin 30-0-(27)

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. 05. Gennady Golovkin 30-0-(27)
06. Guillermo Rigondeaux 13-0-(8)

06. Guillermo Rigondeaux 13-0-(8)

After just 13 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. 06. Guillermo Rigondeaux 13-0-(8)
07. Timothy Bradley 31-1-(12)

07. Timothy Bradley 31-1-(12)

Timothy Bradley may have been involved in another controversial fight whilst out-pointing Juan Manuel Marquez on October 12 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. 07. Timothy Bradley 31-1-(12)
08. Juan Manuel Marquez 55-7-1-(40)

08. Juan Manuel Marquez 55-7-1-(40)

At age 40 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 on October 12. Marquez does not become a bad fighter overnight but he must choose his next opponent very carefully. 08. Juan Manuel Marquez 55-7-1-(40)
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. Adrien Broner 27-1-(22)

10. Adrien Broner 27-1-(22)

Adrien Broner is a great fighter but not, as he he would have you believe, an exceptional one. Yes, he looked the part in running up 27 straight wins but the cracks started to appear during his WBA welterweight title win over Paulie Malignaggi on June 22. 10. Adrien Broner 27-1-(22)
