Top 10 Pound for Pound Boxers of All-time
Spin off of the best Heavyweight but who do you think are the Top 10 pound for pound boxers off all-time.

My #1 is Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

I think prime Pacquiao is better P4P than Mayweather. The answer is always Sugar Ray Robinson, but Ali, Whittaker, Duran and others should be mentioned.

Roy was not a very good "boxer". Same with Tyson...but they were great fighters.

When Roy lost his quickness...he did not do well.

Tyson just lost his desire to train and will to fight.

#2- Bernard Hopkins.

Got to think about 3-10.

Mayweather held all those belts under 160, which make them all useless to me. 6-7 belts over a 30lb range? That is just silly. Heavyweights are just the top tier and the P4P title is meaningless. I've seen Holyfield give up almost 50lbs in one fight. Mayweather has never given up 5..

Yet he dominated the 175 lbs champ at 154 lbs.

And I saw James Toney KO Holyfield.

That's why it's a boxing LBS for LBS discussion.

Most talented hands down. But when his talents diminished he didn't have the skills to last and was very beatable. That hurts his legacy big time.

But, also like Tyson, when he was at the top of his game he was unbeatable. Hopkins knows.

The best I've seen in no order
