MANILA, Philippines – Boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao fell again in RING Magazine's pound-for-pound rankings following the entry of Adrien Broner in the list.

Broner, who dismantled Welshman Gavin Rees in 5 rounds, entered the list at No. 6, relegating Pacquiao to 7th spot.

The Filipino boxer used to share the top spot with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Pacquiao, however, went down to No. 6 following his knockout defeat at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez.

He plans to make his ring return in September.

Mayweather remains as RING's top pound-for-pound, followed by Andre Ward (No. 2), Marquez (No. 3), and Sergio Martinez (No. 4).

Pacquiao's fellow Pinoy fighter Nonito Donaire Jr. occupies the 5th spot, followed by Broner.

Wrapping up the top 10 are Wladimir Klitschko (No. 8), Timothy Bradley (No. 9), and Robert Guerrero (No. 10).
