Pound for Pound 2021

WBN provides an update to the World Boxing News Pound for Pound Top 50 Rankings list for April 2021 as boxing gets back in full swing.

The pandemic has caused several pauses in the list, which usually drops fighters based on inactivity.

Due to the situation, WBN decided that any fighter listed would remain unless retired.

Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez remains the world’s number one fighter ahead of his imminent defense against Billy Joe Saunders.
