    I think Spence and Crawford are waaaay to high given level of competition.... No ggg? Despite his loss being disputed? Think Loma lost his place with the Lopez loss....taylor deserved to be on there til his last fight...not even sure bivol should be on there yet ... although I suppose it's fair after winning an unwinnable fight lol

    I already had Usyk 1st but I would have left Canelo 2nd because I consider that the gap between him and Crawford/Inoue/Spence was huge.

    Didnt have the stones to fight him. The man that had to retire from boxing before facing Usyk.
    And thats your greatest heavyweight? You're in trouble my friend.

    You could say that about many of them.

    Pound-for-Pound lists have always been simply a marketing gimmick and inherently dumb.

    But when multiple guys appear who aren't even considered the best in the division they actually complete in, it makes these gimmicks even less relevant.

    Most people consider Fury the best at Heavyweight, Beterbiev the best at Light Heavyweight, Spence the best at Welterweight.

    I know if no one who thinks Loma is the best Lightweight Right Now.

    Congratulations to the promoters and publicists who got their clients on the list. The publicists' faces should be included next to most of those fighters. The publicists are the ones who got most of those guys on there.

    Actual ratings didn't.

    Why is Crawford two spots higher than Spence when he's not higher in the magazine's actual ratings?

    When talking about where a fighter ranks pound-for-pound, shouldn't the division he actually fights in be included?

    No, that would make too much sense.

    I think Clenelo would be at #4 on mine

    Beating 18 champions, a legit four-weight world champion, and losing a decision in your fourth division albeit he turned pro very young at 15, is a natural 168 pounder now and Bivol is a small LHW who was only a few pounds heavier>>being a one-weight champion, beating way less champions and very few your own natural size.

    But they demoted Loma from #1 to #8 even though he's the most skilled fighter in the sport and is routinely giving away huge physical that no one else on the list is routinely and some aren't doing at all, for losing a close decision on most people's cards in his third division, one full of giants much bigger than him, to a way naturally bigger KO artist who is hardest puncher in said division, in their backyard when he was injured and coming off 14 months of inactivity.

    Not a bad list.

    But Inoue should be above Crawford at #2, Canelo could be a bit higher, Estrada is too high.

    1. Usyk
    2. Inoue
    3. Crawford
    4. Canelo
    5. Loma
    6. Spence
    7. Briedis
    8. Golovkin
    9. Bivol
    10. Beterbiev

    Honorable mention to Taylor, Gonzalez, Stevenson, Smith, Gonzalez, Estrada, and Charlo.

    Crawford and Spence need to fight each other.

    Tbf, with Fury retired, most do consider him the best HW.

    Crawford shouldn't be at #2, Taylor shouldn't be there when Ioka isn't, I'd put Briedis over Spence for sure. Those are my biggest issues.

    I think Canelo should be at number 3 behind Usyk and Inoue. I wouldn’t have Crawford ahead of Canelo. Definitely not Spence.
