    Appreciate the thought and effort you put into this but I strongly disagree with a lot of the choices and rankings. I mean it really is a very poor set of rankings and list and there are just way too many discrepancies I have to point out without the time to do it. I know you are more than a casual and pretty fanatical, but this list IMO is worse than what a lot of casuals would produce.

    At least. IMO Loma and Crawdad are 1 and two and either order is acceptable.

    So win a belt (Even if not the Champ), get a couple of decent win, get on the list? Seems to be how easy it is to be P4P today...

    It's hard to make these lists. Teofimo Lopez is one of the top 15 fighters in the world, and If he were to fight Lomachenko in, say 6 months, I'd take Lopez by KO. But he hasn't won a title, or even had a title fight, so I did not place him. Who did I miss?

    Here is my attempt at a Top 20 (this is from 115 lb and up, as I don’t know enough about the weight classes below that):

    1) Lomachenko
    2) Crawford
    3) Usyk
    4) Canelo
    5) Inoue
    6) Spence
    7) GGG
    8) Rungvisai
    9) Garcia
    10) Callum Smith
    11) Hurd
    12) Nietes
    13) Kovalev
    14) Gvozdyk
    15) Warrington
    16) Joshua
    17) Santa Cruz
    18) Rigondeaux
    19) Fury
    20) Bivol

    So your #1 and #3 best fighters in the world have 13 and 16 fights. Arguably ONE of the 29 fights against a really good guy in his prime who was trying to win (Russell). and your #4 best fighter is 51-1-2 (officially), younger than both of them, and has fought the best fighter in the world 3 times.

    Yes, I rate Loma and Usyk above Canelo. I don’t need to go into all the reasons why but suffice it to say that Canelo’s record is somewhat tainted by bad decisions imo. And you can’t try to pretend that it is somehow controversial to have Loma and Usyk at #1 and #3, respectively. This is very close to where the Ring and ESPN’s pound for pound ratings have them, as well as several other boxing publications and analysts.

    I will when I'm off work bud. Please know I meant no disrespect to you personally, I KNOW you KNOW boxing and some of your choices just seemed like major reaches at the moment but who do have huge potentail. I'm typing from my phone Doing heavy labor work so this is a pain. I'll throw mine up tonight after work when I'm at a computer. Neither of us are right or wrong, just different opinions, which is totally ok but like I said IMO your list had some reaches and some missing giys and so on and so on. Who knows, maybe you turn oit right and ha e that rarest of talents of being able to tell and see boxers true potential before theyve reached it and a keen eye on guys who are overrated and will soon fall off. Anyways, again, thanks for your thought and effort.

    ESPN has Lomachenko #1, Usyk #6

    This content is protected


    Ring has Lomachenko #1 Usyk #4.

    Yeah, somehow they have a guy who is 12-1 in 6 yeas as a pro as the number 1 fighter in the world. His first 3 fights were outstanding. Since then. Average.

    And how is Usyk ranked above Joshua when the latter has had more fights and more KOs against better fighters? The fix is in. But hey I'm not a hater, hope those guys get good checks for it.
