Ring Magazine Best Fighters for 2010 - Manny Pacquiao topped the list

The pound for pound king, Manny Pacquiao made it again to the top. This was after Ring Magazine regarded Manny as the best boxing fighter in the world for the year 2010. Following him are Floyd Mayweather Jr., Sergio Martinez, Juan Manuel Marquez and many others. The ranking was written in a blog post by William Dettloff on January 4, 2011.

Below is the excerpt of how Dettloff of Ring Magazine described Manny Pacquiao,

As most of us expected, Pacquiao made mincemeat out of Antonio Margarito, who not so long ago everyone was calling the most feared fighter in the world. It wasn’t Pacquiao’s most impressive achievement of the past year; the bludgeoning of Miguel Cotto (KO 12) in November of 2009 gets the nod there, and getting points too is the shutout he pitched against the highly competent if reluctant Joshua Clottey (W 12).

Manny Pacquiao was also regarded as the best fighter last 2009 by the Ring Magazine.

Aside of Manny, Nonito Donaire Jr., "Filipino Flash" also topped the Ring Magazine's list. He was ranked in number 5 right after Juan Manuel Marquez.
