Simply the best: pound for pound greatest in the world


Who’s the best? Who is king of the ring?

On the latest ESPN pound-for-pound ratings Vasyl Lomachenko has overtaken Genady Golovkin (GGG) as the king of kings. But what about Terrence Cawford or Canelo Alvarez? Throw in Keith Thurman and Errol Spence Jr. Who is the best?

Rating pound-for-pound boxers is a fun game, but sometimes, just celebrating the best of the best reminds us why the pugilist fight game has stood the test of time. We don’t know about you, but we think it is time again to have a South African dominate the world headlines. Who will it be?

In the meantime, here is a short video compilation of some of the best current pound-for-pound boxing superstars. Enjoy. It is Friday, and time to spend the weekend arguing about who is the best.
