"Like the list and can't say I can really argue with it. To me, its the best list out there and indicates the true pound for pound rankings in the sport.

Regarding Mayweather, he slipped a bit from his one spot. I actually had to think, albeit for just a second or two, before automatically inserting him #1. In the past, it started Mayweather automatically and then figure the rest out.

Ward is slipping and deservedly so. Its hard to rate someone that high given the lack of activity since December 2011 and no fights currently on the docket. Its a shame and a waste of what should be his prime years in this sport."


No question about it, 'cat. Ward is wastin' away, fighting--and losing--in the courtrooms, instead of doing his fighting in the place he is least likely to lose--the ring.

Robinson - absolutely right. And plenty of others ahead of Mayweather, like Greb, Louis, Pep ...

"What I really want to know is what was the total revenue from these fights?

I was out myself at a theater. Last time I was at a theater, it was packed (sold out 30 minutes into the J'Leon Love fight). This was in Cleveland, OH. This time I was in Rochester, NY and there were about 10 people at the theater. No sell out, no standing room.

Maybe the PPV did slightly better but did the total revenue generated do any better? And how is this deal working out for Showtime so far? Are they happy with it or having sever second thoughts? My guess is that latter."


The way it's structured, overall, they can't lose money on the deal. They're happy, though I've heard they were a little concerned with the negative backlash leading up to the pay-per-view.

Even if you isolate Mayweather's purse -- which is fronted by SHO, just like HBO did -- and match it up against their percentage of PPV revenue, say it did 900K vs. 1.2 million, the difference in Showtime/CBS' percentage cut is only $1 million.

Also, revenue should be super high due to higher price points. Theaters count as close circuits, fall under that revenue stream.

Close circuit is a relatively insignificant income source from a percentage standpoint.

Finally, SHO declined comment due to their policy but the source spoke to Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports, traditionally a trusted source.

As any good journalist should, Iole investigated the veracity of the tally by fact-checking the different cable sources who reported anywhere from 10-20% increases over the last fight.

The full numbers won't be in for quite a while.

The 925,000 buyrate is an impressive figure, considering low projections and lackluster tracking indicators.

Due to the landscape of late, a high output of PPV telecasts across the board -- WWE, boxing and MMA -- something industry insiders speculated had caused market saturation, many experts even forecasted that the #Mayhem buyrate would fail to hit 800,000.

In retrospect, however, the total figure is hardly a surprise when you consider the new markets Mayweather reached with the torrent of bad publicity.

As it turns out, the lawsuits and domestic violence criticisms led to features on TMZ, ESPN and CNN, which most likely spiked buys also.

Instead of causing a mass buyer exodus, the constant stream of negative Mayweather press perhaps simply alerted people who may not have known that the number one pound-for-pound was back in action.

While the court of public opinion can be harsh, in boxing -- it would appear -- it does not seem to matter. As long as you keep on #winning.

I have seen Smith before and for me I kind of compared him a little to Brian Rose. Smith is better and a little more skilled but not by too much. Then again, Abraham is slipping and past his peak. I think this fight is entertaining but Smith goes out in round five or six after giving one valiant effort.

I caught the fight at at my local (Ocean's 8) and they were charging $30 a head.



Arrived about 11pm, walked downstairs, and . . . ghost town.



I had my choice of stools, and although a thin crowd trickled in, it never amounted to much. Looked like a Wednesday afternoon in there.



They would've done better business had they not shown the fight at all. I imagine they'll think twice about showing the next Mayweather fight unless it's vs. Cotto or Pacquiao.

Holla at Boxrec about some of SRR's birth places. The truth is oftentimes surrounded by a bodyguard of lies about SRR. And people oughta' quit playing all of these fairy tales about him.

The truth always knocks down and eventually out the BIG LIE! SRR was all that and a piece of apple pie. But he was not a cup of blueberry tea. He probably drunk his peepee. Holla!

"No. SRR was never robbed. The fights he did lose were legitimate losses, but he won so many, who cares? When Joey Archer floored him, everyone knew it was over. Turpin beat him fair and square and so did Joey Maxim with a little help from the heat."



It is hardcore documentation that Sugar Ray Robinson was "ROBBED" under his birth name in his birth state of Alabama. I know that records show that he was born in Georgia. But there are also records showing that he was born in Cali.



Optical illusions and lies are everywhere. I can probably get a birth certificate of Sugar Ray Robinson right here in the P-Islands. Hehe.



But forensic evidence always shut dat syet down. Forensic doesn't play the clown or can drown. Holla!

"TBE" is hands down the late, great boxng Wiz Willie Pep. He ducked less whup-arse pugs than both Money May and Sugar Ray and he won more fights. Old Sugarman's nut riders are always yakking how SRR was 122-1. But they never talk about how Willie Pep won over 170 bouts after he broke his back in a plane crash.

Now that is gangster. Break your back, and six months later you come back and is still whupping arse.

Money May was stank-bytch crying because he broke his finger nail and thought that Chino bit him. STFU crybaby! How are you going to be "TBE" and cry like that? Holla!

Having seen Mr Robinson with my own prepubescent eyeballs I have to concur... Robinson was uniquely talented and one of the best ever. He also entered the sport at an entry level weight where Floyd naturally maxxed out at.......as Ray was the naturally bigger man.

Both Ray Robinson and Ray Leonard would have been uniquely equipped to potentially solve the Mayvinchi code. Although at 130 and 135 even Duran or Pryor were not sure shot winners against the Money Man..... but in a series of fights, Floyd would have most certainly lost a few.

The greatness of Robinson is an old song that will continue to be vigorously sung until human beings begin building fighters through genetically modified DNA coding. Which is possible now... But won't be legally or ethically probable until at least a decade or two from now.

I wouldnt be surprised if the powers try to clone a few great fighters just to see what would happen....lol

"Any guy that stood flat footed and wanted to try and box FMJ would get picked apart. One you can't really land a decent punch him. Plus he might be one of the top 5 counter punchers ever. Robinson and Floyd would be a great fight. Just seeing who can out smart one another. As of current fighters there might be only one other fighter that is smarter than Floyd and the is Bernard Hopkins. He is a throw back fighter for sure. You also have to give Floyd credit he has one of the best chins in boxing. Maybe because he doesn't get hit to often. He stood right in front of some guy that are true KO artist and took their best shots. Canelo, Corrales, Marquez, Castilo, Gatti. Not saying Floyd is the best ever but I seriously don't think to many guys are going to beat him or walk through him. I think he beat Hearns easy because he wasn't a smart fighter. Duran would be a great fight. Leonard excellent fight Robinson epic."
Money May beats Sugar Ray Robinson IMHO. Nobody snow jobs me with superbad propaganda nonsense. SRR had pure hell with short, black, "shoulder-rolling," fighters. This is why he didn't fight Jack Chase, Charlie Burley, Archie Moore, Kid Cocoa, and the "Black Murder Row" list goes on and on.

SRR did retire for a while -- as Money May did -- and came back and fought a smaller, lighter pug, as Money May did and won with Juan Manuel Marquez, but the Sugarman LOST. He lost to shoulder-rolling Ralph "Tiger" Jones.

Money May would have whupped SRR the same way that Money May beat up Diego Corrales.

The dirty-fighting part would have been the most interesting of Money May and the Sugarman.

Money May would've being using inadvertent elbows to noggin and forearms to the throat. And the Sugarman would've been using those rabbit punches to the kidney and behind the head.

Just maybe we would have seen a double D'Q.

Inattentional blindness and teste riding tend to ex-egg-er-rate the greatness of both Sugar Ray Robinson and Money May.

Wille Pep was better than both combined in my humble opinion. He was a pure boxing machine and lesser of a fouling one. But even he would thumb you in the eyeballs, bump knee you and even ankle trip you. Just tricks of the trade. But he is still my pick for the greatest pound for pound of all times.

And the fairy-tales of both Money May and Sugar Ray ought to stop. I will even say that the first pug to win multi-world title belts Bob FitzSimmons were better than they. And neither one of them could carry a bucket of spit of "Finito" Lopez. Holla!

Okay! This fancy promoting and jiving and conniving ought to HALT! Sugar Ray Robinson was not undefeated as an amateur anymore than Chris Algieri was undefeated in kickboxing.



Under his real name of "Walker Smith Jr," the Sugarman lost documented bouts to Billy Graham and Patsy Pesca.



After years of fighting the feeling of posting the actuality of the reality, Boxrec halted the optical illusions and has posted da real real. About time.



Boxrec is getting almost as good as the paid site of Fightfax, which always confirm and verify the whole nine. For near 100-percent actuality of the reality, Fightfax rides.



By the way, SRR also lost bouts -- he was likely ROBBED -- down south in the pros under his given name, which two versions -- "Walker Smith, Jr" and "Walker George Smith, Jr" -- exist.



In doing some deep-cover research, one will see that African American pugs -- as SRR -- modified their birth names from what they were in the southern USA. And many times, as fighters moved to fight in different locales of the mainland USA, they would fight under different names.



Petty criminal William Harrison -- better boksing known as Jack Dempsey -- comes to mind. Holla!"




Great post as usual RG, but it doesn't sat who is TBE ! Surely not Mayweather, you must have an opinion of who was TBE !

I love the ability to be able to check our own P4P ratings and how they change over time, excellent job. I notice a few ties so I guess we need some more listed opinions on the P4P rankings!

Am I surprised that Floyd Mayweather still sits atop the hill, after his last performance? Yes.

Am I surprised that Andre Ward has dropped from #2 to #4, due to his inactivity in the ring? No.

Am I surprised that the fantastic trio of Pacquiao, Rigondeaux and Golovkin have leapfrogged the hermit and eternal-legal-disputing-not-fist-fighting Ward and taken positions #2,#3, and #4 respectively? No.

Bernard Hopkins and Wlad have done a switch-a-roo, not too surprising although I feel there may be somewhat of a glass ceiling at present for the 49 going on 50 year old BHop, which I hope will be smashed (with some boxing records) when the Hopkins meets Kovalev.

I'm surprised that Manuel Marquez still holds a position in the top 10, albeit joint with Tim Bradley at #9 (who comprehensively beat him not too long ago). There are in my opinion several fighters omitted who can beat both Bradley and Marquez in their weight classes and in a hypothetical P4P match up..

Lastly, Vasyl Lomachenko only clocking in #12. He needs to be fighting at least 4 fights a year and start climbing to where he deserves to be on these rankings."

WTF! Anyway! All the fairy-tale stories are off. I believe that it is C-Al who stole Blunderbore's "Golden Goose," chicken, rooster, quail or -- biting off my Tio Mamoy's English accent -- "whadever da puck it was."



How else could a fighter transcend from making 5-to-15 thousand dollars a bout to $100,000 and now a guarantee of $1.5mil that can hit upward of $3mil+ when all is said and done.



That is all right, Blunderbore. Jack kicked your arse. But Da Manny/3m is going get C-Al for you. But when C-Al comes back to the mainland USA, Uncle Sam's greedy arse is going to take that Golden Goose for tax purposes. Hehehe! But, at least, C-Al will have a few bucks and he will be the Empire State richest active-fighting muck-a-muck. Poor soul. In Macau, he will have no inside-dat-squared-jungle luck. Holla!

Here go again! They always love to pull Sugar Ray Robinson outta the hat. And he was more full of jive than Money May could ever be.

He ducked the "Black Murder Row." He fought struggling undertakers and drug-using caretakers. He beat da hebejeebeez outta his wives and hos. He use dwarfs and midget for bowling balls.

"The notable name" SSR ducked, not "missed," would've been favorable over him too. Charlie Burley was a mixed of speed and power and too much whup arse for SRR. SRR knew it.

Somebody need to start telling the truth. Money May is a mini ducker. SSR was a mass ducker.

Money May missed fighting a lot of pugs because of all these alphabet-sanctioning organizations. They didn't want the fights.

SSR just plain ducked Black Murder Row pugs because of their toughness -- that he knew from sparring sessions -- and smallness of the purse that he was offered to dance with them. During his days, there were just two powerful alphabet-sanctioning organizations -- the NBA and the IBO. The New York Boxing Commission was a fringe one which gave SRR its crown.

I got another plane to catch, so I'm finish with this. Holla!

The Commish:

So true.

Has Floyd Mayweather even fought in blazing, searing heat before, the way Sugar Ray Leonard and Thomas Hearns did in their first match? In that fight, they waged one of history's great battles in a ring where the temperature exceeded 120 degrees. When Mayweather fights, it's always inside a casino arena, where the temperature stays at a controlled 65 degrees.

Yes, Floyd Mayweather is great, but I shake my head with his self-promoting TBE. Yes, he's great, but he's great for this era. Welterweight Emile Griffith would have had fun with Mayweather. So would the June 20, 1980 version of Roberto Duran, as well as the man he beat that day, Sugar Ray Leonard.

Floyd Mayweather is damned good. He's good enoughto sit atop TSS'newest PxP Ratings. But all-time?

He is not, by any means, TBE!

I loved those boxing trunks. They took us from the era of plain black & white trunks to a flashier era. If I'm correct, I think Hector "Macho" Camacho began a whole new era with his totally outlandish, colorful, wild designs.

Yes, the drawing depicted SRL in the black trunks he wore in the "No Mas" fight. The trunks he actually wore in the first fight against Hearns were white with a red waistband. Hearns also wore white trunks that night.

I love the fight. Both guys have been in fight of the year type fights in the past and this one will be good. I like Herrera here but think we will see some very good action. Its one of those old school boxing after dark fights HBO use to have all the time and maybe just maybe they are slowly going back to those days. Hope this gets finalized.
