Awesome Devin Haney jabs his way into Pound for Pound reckoning

Undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney jabbed into the WBN Pound for Pound Top 50 with a brilliant win over the weekend.

Haney added the WBO, IBF, and WBA straps to his WBC belt to put beyond doubt any claims that he’s the email titleholder.

“The Dream” takes up the number eight spot on the ratings, above Jermell Charlo, as a new generation begins to take over the top places.

The scary thing about Devin Haney is that he’s only 23 years old and already on top of the world.

Oleksandr Usyk remains number one, with Canelo Alvarez dropping to two after his loss to Dmitry Bivol.

Errol Spence is at three, with Tyson Fury and Naoya Inoue making up the top five. Inoue can improve his ranking and overtake Fury if he defeats thirteen-ranked Nonito Donaire for the second time.

Terence Crawford remains outside of the top five due to his resume issues. Bivol comes seventh, with Haney eight and Charlo ninth.

Former P4P number one Roman Gonzalez is at ten on the list.

As World Boxing News previously explained, Spence and Crawford will battle it out for the top spot when they face off later this year in Las Vegas.
