Pacquiao still no. 1 in P4P rankings

The 8-division world champion Manny Pacquiao continues to dominated the boxing's latest rankings of Yahoo Sports. Despite a successful comeback fight with former pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather against Victor Ortiz, it still unshaken position of the Filipino ring icon. Pacquiao earned 413 points while Mayweather has only 390. I think what happens to the fight of Mayweather against Ortiz last September 17, never gave a strong indications to the boxing journalists that Mayweather clearly dominated that fight. Meanwhile, records also enter the current WBC / WBO bantamweight champion Nonito "The
Filipino Flash" Donaire. Donaire is in fourth place after gain of 262 points. Pacquiao is preparing to defend his WBO welterweight belt against the tougher Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez which will be held at the MGM Grand on November 12. Manny Pacquiao is now in Baguio city, Philippines for his 4 weeks of training together with Roach. 3QV28NVQXSH4
