The no.1 pound 4 pound spot is up for grabs

Floyd “ Money” Mayweather is holding the no.1 lb per lb spot in boxing today but the question would be how long? Floyd with all his skills has chosen to fight the easier path rather than taking the best of the best in boxing. Floyd challenges an old Delahoya and almost suffered a set back and then went to war with a smaller Ricky Hatton. He could have chosen Miguel Cotto or Shane Mosley which could very well test his supremacy in his division. Floyd has a scheduled rematch against Delahoya a fight people find it boring and again Floyd tries to evade the big names in favor of a big pay day with his immaculate record intact.
He doesn’t deserve to be the no.1 and for me the coming fight this Saturday between the Ring Magazine light heavy weight champion Bernard Hopkins against undisputed super middle weight champion Joe Calzaghe will be the barometer on how things could surely messed up the rankings for the no.1 spot. Both warriors decided to challenge each other for the good of boxing and for boxing supremacy. Hopkins at age 43 could very well end his illustrious career with a win against undefeated 36 year old banger in Calzaghe a fight way better than the Mayweather-Delahoya 2. As far as im concern its anybody’s ballgame…and with lots of good fights coming im not surprise to see Mayweather stepping down his throne….
So step it up guys the no.1 pound 4 pound spot is up for grabs…
