Boxing News That Pulls No Punches

P4P

The Pound For Pound list ranks the top active boxers today without holding any boxer to an individual weight-class.

Roman Gonzalez falls out of the Top 5 with a stunning loss that I viewed he had actually clearly won. Nonetheless, Gonzalez is on the backend of his career and no longer #1. The top spot belongs to Triple G after a great win over Daniel Jacobs at Madison Square Garden. Andre Ward climbs into the Top 5 with a UD vs fellow Top 5 fighter Sergey Kovalev. Kovalev’s position is tied with Ward’s as I viewed the fight a toss up that probably should’ve gone Kovalev’s way in the end. A major rematch is already being planned for later this year.
