Results Create Movement: BScene Pound for Pound Update

by Cliff Rold

This hasn’t been a dull year so far. 

Several men on the last top ten have seen action as well as several on the fringe. It’s caused plenty of room to shake things up. The big question is at the top. Vasyl Lomachenko rose to lightweight and won an excellent scrap with Jorge Linares to capture a belt in his third weight class. Previously rated fourth, was it enough to leap all of the men in front of him?

Three fighters exit. 


Juan Francisco Estrada, previously sixth, lost a nail biter to Srisaket Sor Rungvisai. He could have remained but the performances of others made space tough to come by. Sor Rungvisai, previously eighth, benefits in victory.

Keith Thurman, who sat just behind Estrada, still has no return opponent set and has been out of the ring with injuries for more than a year. Finally, previous number ten Badou Jack couldn’t cross the finish line against Adonis Stevenson and his tentative start in what was ultimately a draw removed him as well.

Who replaces them? Naoya Inoue, Errol Spence, and both of the finalists in the cruiserweight World Boxing Super Series made powerful statements in their outings this year. Coming up with just ten is as tough as it’s ever been in a sport where plenty of talents are fighting at a high level. 

Let the debate begin by clicking on the latest:

Crawford is the clear #1 now due to the fact Lomachenko is out [I]indefinitely[/I] due to his shoulder injury... That also means Lomachenko shouldn't even be on a list (as out "indefinitely" fighters of the past have always been treated)...…

Crawford number 1, yet his best win is about to get KO'd by a 12 fight prospect in a couple of weeks :lol1:

[QUOTE=jas;18827351]My list 1. Inoue 2. Loma 3. Crawford 4. Ggg 5. Spence 6. Rung 7. Kovalev 8. Bivol 9. Mikey 10. Wilder[/QUOTE] Very good and I could use it but I think Gassiev has a place on the top 10.…

Surprised Badou Jack ever made it to the list

Crawford & Spence have too weak of a resume to be anywhere near the top.
