P4P Update: Terence Crawford hits #2 behind Vasyl Lomachenko / Leo Santa Cruz re-enters Top 10

WBN P4P 12/06/2018

Terence Crawford’s three-weight world title victory against Jeff Horn on Saturday night has seen the American overhaul former number one Gennady Golovkin on the Pound for Pound list.

‘Bud’ battered and halted Horn at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to add the welterweight crown to his lightweight strap and four belt haul at super-lightweight, with only Vasyl Lomachenko standing in the way of claiming the best boxer in the world title.

Lomachenko took the honor with a superb triumph over world class operator Jorge Linares, meaning a win over Horn just wasn’t enough for Crawford to make it to the summit.

On the same night, featherweight ruler Leo Santa Cruz scored a second victory over Abner Mares to take his place in the Top 10 once again.

Santa Cruz dropped just outside on the back of a surge of new fighters reaching the coveted Top 10 but returns following an entertaining battle with rival Mares.

Maurice Hooker cracked the Top 50 for the first time in his career via a decision win over Terry Flanagan, whilst Dmitry Bivol does likewise and Kell Brook makes a re-appearance due to several fighters dropping out of the reckoning through suffering losses.
