    You have your opinion, But Manny is still on top as P$P fighter.  sorry to!!!!!!

  3. tony 11:11pm, 11/16/2011

    Manny has losses on his record, Floyd doesnt. How can a man be undefeated and be number 2. Floyd is the UNDEFEATED, UNDISPUTED, UNDERRATED Champion and number 1 p4p fighter. That doesnt change until sumone beats him….....and it wont be Manny….sorry!!!!!

  4. DVL 06:24pm, 11/16/2011

    That is your own opinion Ted, but legit P4P records speaks for its self, Manny is still on top of the list. Yes, Floyd is number one but after Manny.

    Sthomas, I’m with Old Yank on that one.

    Great list Ted.  How did you score Pac. vs.JMM III?  I’m interested in reading your thoughts on it too.

    “I don’t think I’d have Vitali on a P4P top ten, but not sure who I’d replace him with.” Huh, why not? If I had to replace him, I do it with Wlad.

    UNCLE TEDDY That’s about right, no argument here although i probably wouldn’t have included Froch. Yes, he’s as game as they come but will lose to Ward, Bute and probably even to Kessler again if they meet anytime soon. And THANK YOU for having the cojones to exclude Bhops.

  9. TEX HASSLER 08:46am, 11/16/2011

    Thanks for including Martinez on the list. He certainly has earned it.

  10. john coiley 08:43am, 11/16/2011

    oh what a battle, as opposed to a war, that would be. though I think Mayweather might be just a wee bit stronger. but don’t ask me to bet on it.

    I don’t think I’d have Vitali on a P4P top ten, but not sure who I’d replace him with.  I like the list otherwise, though I’d put Donaire above Martinez.  Anyway, what a loaded division the super-middleweights appear to be at this moment!  Interesting.  With that in mind, I’ll say that I can’t argue with Jr. at the top—not too vociferously anyway—but while those super-middleweights are going to be facing (hopefully) a plethora of styles and challenges, Jr. doesn’t really for all that, and sooner or later, he is going to drop (for me anyway).

    Shane, ok

  13. "Old Yank" Schneider 07:43am, 11/16/2011

    Solid list—quite reasonable.

  14. AKT 06:34am, 11/16/2011

    Pardon me, Shane; but you are?

    Follow the logic:

    Pacquiao struggled against the counter-puncher in JMM.

    Get it?

  15. Shane 05:26am, 11/16/2011

    Sorry Ted Sares, but you are not the authority on P4P boxers.  Manny is #1 and no matter what you write, you can’t change it. He was #1 before his WIN over marquez and he is still # 1.

  16. AKT 04:15am, 11/16/2011

    Ted Sares is a genius! Not many left around these days ... ah well! one’s enough!
