WW ranks:
1. Mosley

3. Mayweather

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.
See the thrid letter down here where they are discussing Pacquiao moved to number 1 at Welterweight-

I very much doubt it changed before May 1st because Pacquiao whopped Clottey and Mosley didn't fight.
