Re: Pound for Pound list

If you're wonering what those numbers mean, it is just a little bit of information which I added to my rankings, I number the division they are in wherever from 1-18 (because there are 18 divisions), and I list where I think they should rank in their division.

Re: Pound for Pound list

Here's mine.

1. Terence Crawford
2. Andre Ward
3. Mikey Garcia
4. Vasyl Lomackenko
5. Saul Alvarez
6. Gennady Golovkin
7. Keith Thurman
8. Roman Gonzalez
9. Olexandre Usyk
10. Deontay Wilder
11. Danny Jacobs
12. Anthony Joshua
13. Jermall Charlo
14. Errol Spence
15. Zolani Tete

I'm not sure about that list, I'll probably change it. I can easily see your list, can definitely see Lomackenko in the number two or even number one spot, but I highly doubt Kovalev is better than Canelo and GGG, and Garcia and Thurman, we'll see, he could be, if the rematch is close then definitely, but if he gets his head boxed off, then it will be hard to rank him that high.

Re: Pound for Pound list

Is that a list of hiw they should be ranked based on what they Have achieved?, or is that how good you think they are in comparison?, so has Lomackenko just proven more?, or does he beat Mikey Garcia?

Re: Pound for Pound list

As much as a great fighter I think Loma will become, I don't think he should be ranked in anyone's top 5, especially after only 8 fights.

Re: Pound for Pound list

You could be right, however, after such a fantastic amateur career, and with that record!, many thinkn it necessary to give him the benefit of the doubt and believe in his potential, plus, he had looked increasingly impressive before that KO of the year candidate knock out over Roman Martinez, and what a performance against Nicholas Walters, in my opinion, based on this, this is enough to put him in the top five. I believe potentially, after a couple more fights, and more familiarity and consistency, Mikey Garcia could even have the beating of Lomackenko.

Re: Pound for Pound list

To be Honest...Loma should be credited for his World Series Boxing record in the Pros. just because it was sanctioned by the AIBA, it is being discarded from Pro Record.

Re: Pound for Pound list

Here's mine as of July 2017:

1. V. Lomachenko
2. G. Golovkin
3. T. Crawford
4. K. Thurman
5. D. Wilder
6. S. Kovalev
7. A. Ward
8. G. Rigondeaux
9. R. Gonzalez
10. D. Jacobs

I wanted to sneak in M. Garcia...but being honest... he hasn't been as active as we wish he was or with better opposition. Rigo is a similar case as I think he should be ranking higher.

Re: Pound for Pound list

Kov above Ward?(:

Re: Pound for Pound list

Jacobs above Canelo?

Re: Pound for Pound list

Well, Jacobs just managed to go 12 Rounds against one of the most feared fighters in this era, and in the eyes of some he made it a close fight.
I'm yet to see a performance by Canelo that indicates he should be in the P4P list.

Re: Pound for Pound list

Re: Pound for Pound list

1. Ward
2. Crawford
3. Golovkin
4. Canelo
5. Rigondeaux
6. Lomachenko
7. Kovalev
8. Thurman
9. M.Garcia
10. Spence Jr

Re: Pound for Pound list

I don't see how Kovalev could be better than Mikey Garcia and Errol Spence Jr, or Thurman for that matter.

Re: Pound for Pound list

Andre Ward retiring shakes up every boxing fans pound for pound lists. So does number two simply move up to number one with Andre walking away for everyone, or does the first position need to be fought for?

Re: Pound for Pound list

No it doesn't in this case, not for the time being, I mean, someone has to have the top spot, whether that's Crawford, M Garcia, Lomachenko, Canelo, Golovkin, well that can be debated all day long, but I think one of them, or Rigondeaux, Spence, a few others, should definitely be in that number 1 pound for pound position.
