The World’s Top 50 boxers have been updated as we prepare to enter the final third of 2019. So far, it’s been quite a year as Canelo leads the way.

Mexico’s number one star proved his worth once again with victory over Daniel Jacobs in May, cementing his position as the number one middleweight star on the planet.

Second place is former top dog Vasyl Lomachenko, who will be pushing Canelo hard if he picks up a third belt at 135 on August 31.

The top ten is pretty much compiled of the same fighters of late, with only Manny Pacquiao making significant progress.

‘Pacman’ is currently third after inflicting a first loss on Keith Thurman over the summer in Las Vegas.

Naoya Inoue, Terence Crawford, Oleksandr Usyk, Gennady Golovkin, Errol Spence, Tyson Fury and Mikey Garcia make up the rest of the main players.

In the top twenty, Jose Ramirez blasted his way into the mix after stopping the previously impressive Maurice Hooker. Ramirez unified at 140 with his recent win.
