However, the Ring magazine writers and editors warned that Pacquiao could lose his prestigious crown if he will lose his next fight or produced another less dominating performance like what he did in his tough battle against Marquez. Taking the second sport in the prestigious list of best boxers in the planet is undefeated American boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr.
