It says on here Mosley entered at number 2 welterweight (I know they was 2 and 3 pound for pound).
I know this for a fact... I hate using that word, sorry... But really, entering May 1st, 2010, Ring Magazine looked like this:
It was a big deal with many claiming Mayweather/Mosley should be for the vacant WW title since Mayweather lost it via retirement and not in the ring not too long before, while everyone else respected the lineage ceasing with the retirement and acknowledging that a WW lineal title wouldn't be worthy without Pacquiao in the fight.
