Pound for Pound Top 50 boxers in the world

WBN P4P 05/08/2018

The latest Pound for pound list has been published with Vasyl Lomachenko leading the way and former number one Gennady Golovkin dropping from the top spot to five since the turn of the year.

Mikey Garcia and Aleksandr Usyk are big movers, whilst the emergence of those two sees Terence Crawford drop down one place on the list.

WBN’s pound for pound rankings are based on world title wins, multi-weight titles, caliber of opponents, manner of victories, longevity and activity in a calendar year.

Fighters earn more ranking points for defeating opponents also rated in the Top 50. Star ratings are based on achievement in the sport.

*Fighters who fail to arrange an upcoming fight for twelve months will forfeit their ranking (barring injury).
