The dominating victory over his smaller fellow future hall of famer earned him the No. 2 spot in both THE RING’s welterweight and pound-for-pound ratings behind No. 1 Manny Pacquiao.
Mayweather assumed the No. 1 welterweight ranking from Pacquiao by out-classing the then-No. 2-rated Mosley last May. However, Pacquiao regained the top 147-pound position after he dominated Antonio Margarito in a 12-round junior middleweight bout in which he weighed under the welterweight limit.
Mentioned in a few other links as well, but that's the first to pop up. Mosley was #3 P4P also, I believe. It's funny because prior to the fight, there was talk about how much the fight adds to his legacy if he won.
mosely just came off that dominating win over margo.
no use trying to reason with canelo backers.
theyre pretty much new to boxing that dont know much about the sport.
