New unified light heavyweight ruler Artur Beterbiev made a big move on the recently updated WBN Top 50 Pound for Pound Boxing Rankings list.

The Russian puncher stopped Oleksandr Gvozdyk in impressive fashion to add the WBC to his IBF version.

Beterbiev pushed to 19 having previously only flirted with the ratings.

Vasyl Lomachenko remains top of the pile after regaining his place at the helm from Canelo Alvarez.

Lomachenko’s win over Luke Campbell was enough to overhaul the Mexican.

Errol Spence Jr. is the biggest mover in those top ten places after also becoming unified at welterweight.

Divisional rivals Manny Pacquiao and Terence Crawford both appear in the higher echelons.

Gennadiy Golovkin, Naoya Inoue, Oleksandr Usyk, Juan Estrada and Tyson Fury make up the top ten.

ABOUT

WBN’s pound for pound rankings are based on –  World title wins, multi-weight titles, caliber of opponents and manner of victories. Longevity and activity in a calendar year are also taken into consideration.

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, therefore, forfeit their ranking (barring injury).
