Pound for Pound Top 50 Boxing Rankings – November 2022

World Boxing News provides the current Pound for Pound Boxing Rankings Top 50 as they stand in November 2022.

Oleksandr Usyk is number one

As the year begins to wind down, heavyweight force Oleksandr Usyk is unlikely to lose the top spot. The formidable Ukrainian will be top of the pile into 2023.

Canelo Alvarez remains in second place after a lengthy reign as king ended when Dmitry Bivol toppled the Mexican superstar in May.

The Cinnamon one recovered to regain second place with a dominant win over Gennadiy Golovkin after dropping further back.

Sitting in third place is the ever-awesome Naoya Inoue. The Japanese puncher has ripped through every division he’s ever competed in. He now stands on the verge of becoming undisputed at bantamweight.

A win on December 13 would add the WBO version to his WBC, IBF, and WBA crowns. However, it still won’t be enough to overthrow Usyk after his rival claimed seven world title belts in two divisions during the same period Inoue cleaned up at 118.

Errol Spence remains fourth as the number one fighter at welterweight. Canelo conqueror Bivol completes the top five.

Further down the list, WBO middleweight champion Zhanibek Alimkhanuly enters the Top 50 for the first time after completing a successful first defense.

Rival Jaime Munguia moved up slightly after his win over the weekend. However, Munguia dropped many places before beating Gonzalo Coria due to the caliber of his recent opponents.
