Default Pound for pound top 10 in 4 or 5 years?

Who do you think they will be? I think we can assume the likes of Mayweather, Marquez, Martinez, Pacquiao, Froch, Hopkins Klitschko's will have retired or degraded to the point they aren't considered pound for pound in the sport anymore so who do you predict will be there?

Andre Ward is probably nailed on. He's already beat the best fighter at Super Middleweight and beat the best Light Heavyweight and I can't see anyone beating him to be frank.

Nonito Donaire looks likely to at Junior Featherweight he might have fights with Rigondeaux and/ or Mares but I don't really give them much of a chance. When he moves up he might see more resistance but the only guy at Featherweight I think would have a chance of beating him is Mikey Garcia, but as they share trainers it's not gonna happen.

I will also say Mikey Garcia will be on the list for the same reasons.

I'd favor Adrein Broner to beat everyone at Lightweight but I'm not convinced that once he moves up he will be as dominate. In fact I wouldn't rule out Khan beating him if he stays disciplined. But I'm going to go out on a limp and say Broner is there.

As an outside bet I'm going to say David Price is the man who ends Wlad's dominates and takes over as the dominate heavyweight.

Gary Russell Jr has stood still for a while now and needs to start fighting better opposition but he has the ability.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Geenady Golovkin- while he didn't blow anyone away this weekend still looks like he has the ability to be an elite fighter.

Sorry Rigondeaux fans but Kazuto Ioka has a far better resume after 11 fights, and I think he makes it provided he avoids Roman Gonzalez

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

As the final guy in the 10 I'll guess that Tim Bradley is still somewhat relevant in 4-5 years.

By the way these 10 are in no particular order. What's yours?

4 or 5 years might be a bit soon for him to have face the level of competition required for pound for pound placement.

I was never a big Mikey fan, but after seeing how expertly he dismantled Salido, don't see how he will be left off anyone's p4p list for the next 5 years or so.

Donaire
Ward
Broner
Mares
Alvarez
Bradley
Ioka
Mikey Garcia
Danny Garcia
Yamanaka

It's all near impossible to predict at this point. I'll give other possible shouts for various reasons to: Golovkin, Matthysse, Chavez Jr, Roman Gonzalez, Burns, Uchiyama, Russell Jr, Moreno
