MANILA, Philippines – Filipino boxing champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao has lost his standing as the top pound-for-pound boxer in the world after his nemesis, unbeaten boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., topped The RING Magazine’s best fighter poll.
Mayweather reportedly received 5.5 first place votes, compared to 3.5 votes for Pacquiao.
But several boxing writers questioned the results of the poll, and boxing analyst Atty. Ed Tolentino said fans should take the new pound-for-pound ratings with a grain of salt. Mornings @ ANC, April 4, 2012.
