BoxingScene Pound for Pound: April 2019 Update

by Cliff Rold

If one entered the last two weekends with Terence Crawford and Vasyl Lomachenko as their leaders in the field of mythological wonders where all fighters might compete at the same size, nothing happened against Amir Khan or Anthony Crolla, respectively, to change that.

Nothing happened that would change the order one had them in either. If anyone out there had someone else in their top slot, nothing really happened that would move one of them up either.


They did what they were supposed to do. So did Errol Spence in his fight with Mikey Garcia. He was supposed to win but he did so in such demonstrative fashion that it does get him a bump up from the nine slot.

Keep an eye on the next couple months as Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, Saul Alvarez, and Naoya Inoue will all be in action. There could be movement afoot.

For now, feel free to agree, disagree, and debate away.

[QUOTE=aboutfkntime;19689625]but you just flip-flopped, kinda you do not rate Crawford, because of lack of resume, therefore lack of experience but you ignore Pac's outstanding resume, and truckloads of experience and if you dropped Golovkin because of poor form, and you…
