Filipino eight division world boxing champion, Manny Pacquiao, was selected by Ring Magazine as the 2010 top boxer in the world. Ring Magazine‘s William Dettloff has enlisted the top 100 fighters in the world for 2010, according to The Ring website.

The 2010 list of top fighters is Ring Magazine‘s 15th consecutive annual ranking of the 100 best fighters in the world. Ring Magazine is considered as the Bible of boxing.

Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr maintained their rankings from last year’s list. Bernard Hopkins and Shane Mosley were significantly demoted in the list, which, many believed is due to their age.

The Filipino boxing hero Pacquiao will be facing former welterweight champion Shane Mosley in May 2011.

Other Filipino boxers who made it into the top 10 of Ring Magazine‘s list are Nonito Donaire and Fernando Montiel.
