Predicting Boxing's Top 10 Pound-for-Pound Rankings 5 Years from Now
Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Predicting the 10 best pound-for-pound boxers five years from now is no easy task.

While its safe to say mainstays like Floyd Mayweather, Juan Manuel Marquez and Manny Pacquiao will be retired by then or at least aged passed elite status, its difficult to imagine how young fighters today will fare against each other in the race to replace them.

Moreover, its hard to predict the longevity of a fighters career. For example, would anyone five years ago have predicted former middleweight champion Kelly Pavliks demise? Or the rise of junior welterweight Danny Garcia and welterweight Timothy Bradley since?

But Bleacher Report doesnt shy away from the difficult. We embrace it.

Fighters are ranked by age, where they are in their careers today and how their talents, skills and abilities project to carry them into the future.
