Mosley has been all over the different top 5 P4P rankings for quite a while.

The current lists mostly have Pacman ranked #1, Mayweather #2, and Mosley #3.

These aren't "official", but they're hardly disputed by anybody:

I know he used to be a highly ranked boxer. It seems that only since the Mayweather fight was anounced that people started putting him in the top 5... before the fight was anounced not that many people even had him in the top 10 as far as i know. I know boxrec arent the best rankings but hes at like 18.


I think everyone is buying into the advetisement a bit.

No, no, no, no...Boxrec is completely wrong. Go look at their rankings in welterweight and P4P and you wont even see Mosley listed. I'm not sure why, but they probably took him off because it's been over a year since he fought. Thats why rankings from Yahoo, The Ring, Boxrec, Boxing scene, they are ALL subjective. For the most part, they tend to get it right or CLOSE to right, but it's ALWAYS subjective.

If you actually watch and follow boxing, you would know that Shane Mosley has been considered an elite P4P fighter since around 1999. He had a rough stretch between 2002 and 2004 , but he bounced back and his only loss since 2005 was Miguel Cotto, no shame in that. He completely destroyed Margarito in his last fight, and nobody has ever stopped this guy. Shane Mosley is guaranteed Hall of Famer.

I know you wanna see Floyd fight Manny, as we all do, but this fight is HARDLY a fight that should be looked down on. This is not about buying into any advertising, this fight has had Boxing fans drooling for 10 years.

I hear ya about too many of the best being dead and retired, but there really are some great and exciting talents out there right now, beyond just Floyd and Manny. Guys like Paul Williams, Chad Dawson, Timothy Bradley, and even Yuriorkis Gamboa.

Try around the past 10 years actually. You don't beat guys like De La Hoya (twice) and Fernando Vargas (twice) and fall off the list. Granted, he's lost 5 fights, but Vernon Forest, Winky Wright, and Miguel Cotto are not bums.
