Thumbs up Yahoo! Sports Top Ten PFP LIst. Props for not including Hatton.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Yahoo sports gave out their pfp list in boxing and i would say that it is on point and i am especially glad to see that Hatton is NOT considered in the top ten.

10. Sugar Shane Mosley
9. Israel Vazquez
8. Winky Wright
7. Jermain Taylor
6. Miguel Cotto
5. Bernard Hopkins
4. Juan Manuel Marquez
3. Joe Calzaghe
2. Manny Pacquiao
1. Floyd Mayweather Jr.


one thing that i would say that may be off is Calzaghe's spot. only because he isnt as proven as much as some of the other fighters in my opinion. i would probably place him behind Hop and Marquez. nevertheless, it's a good list.

Calzaghe should be in Jermaine Taylors spot, no way he is #3 for beating lacy years ago then Manfredo frankenstein. Hatton got a better resume the past few years. I guess this is assuming the assault he is going to put on Kessler. But he should not get moved up from past 7 until he beats Kessler's ass. I mean, he is going to beat his ass but you cant just do that.

Any list that doesn't have Hatton in the top 10 is just being stupid. When he beat Tszyu, Tszyu was rated between 1 and 3. When he beat Castillo, he was rated between 5 and 10.

Tsyu was not rated between 1 and 3 after beating sharmba up. Tsyu was rated like that in his prime. He was like 7. lol and Castillo was rated p4p briefly after knocking out chico but fell from grace after the weight debacle and fell again after barely beating up a tune up that to me really won the fight before Hatton. Castillo has not been active..lol

Tszyu wasnt rated shit at that time. not like when he was in his prime.

beating up an old man in your back yard is nothing to be proud of homey.

Cal is too high, other than that, it's ok. Put B-hop at 3.

In which case what is Taylor doing on that list?

Winky and Hopkins are both getting on a bit.

but they are undoubtedly still among the best. no one argues against that.

all three of them are rightfully top ten.

Yes he was. Sharmba was considered the number 1 140 pounder and Tszyu sparked him. I'd say 90% of people had Tszyu between 1-3.

You don't lose your placement because of missing weight and not looking a million dollars. He was still a top P4P fighter.

Stop giving me this revisionist bullshit.

Tszyu was rated 1-3.

Taylor will be on the list until his loses. Why do people hate Taylor so much. Spinks and Ouma are hard fights for anybody. Even though they are 154 guys at best. I think both can compete at 160 legit. We will see in the future. Nobody especially a bigger slower fighter is just going to beat spinks up. It is impossible. The guy is moving non stop for 12 rounds in a circle not backwards or forwards where you can get him. He moves clockwise and counter clockwise enough to make your ass dizzy. That being said it was dumb for JT to fight him. But Mora pulled out. That was my wish. Damned Mora...I was hoping his ass would grow some nuts and get knocked out like he is supposed to. SHIT. I am still mad.
