For the better part of 10 years, Floyd Mayweather, JR. was the unquestioned best fighter in the sport. Sitting atop every worthwhile pound for pound list, and most importantly the Ring Magazine. Having a fighter dominate the top of the pound for pound list for years at a time is nothing unusual, as it’s happened many times over the course of boxing history. Whether you’re speaking of the great Roberto Duran during the 70’s, or you look at the 90’s, and you have Roy Jones, JR. and Pernell Whitaker who jockeyed for the top spot for the better part of the decade. What becomes very interesting is the debate that rages after a fighter like Floyd loses his spot, or in his case, steps away from the sport.
