Pound for Pound Rankings

The Boxing Source has made their list for the top 10 pound for pound fighters in the sport. This list has been updated as of October 19th 2022. It will be updated once a month. Here is the list from 10 to 1.

10. Devin Haney

The undisputed lightweight champion enters the list coming off his decision win over George Kambosos Jr. to retain those titles, with this bout being more convincing than the one earlier this year. The Oakland native might be one of the more complete fighters in the sport, but may have to get more fights in to show the world his abilities.

Shakur has been viewed as one of the most talented young fighters in the sport. He will be campaigning in the lightweight division in 2023 after being the unified champion at super featherweight this year.

8. Josh Taylor

Taylor has had one of the better resumes in boxing, defeating Regis Prograis, Jose Ramirez, Viktor Postol, and Ivan Baranchyk en route to becoming the undisputed champion at 140 pounds. He will face Jack Catterall in a rematch on February 4th 2023.

7. Gervonta Davis

“Tank” has become one of the most popular fighters in the sport, bringing large crowds to places like Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Brooklyn. He will have his next fight against Hector Luis Garcia in January and then face Ryan Garcia in the spring.

6. Stephen Fulton

“Cool Boy Steph” has defeated nine unbeaten fighters in his career so far, including a string of four consecutive wins before his latest victory over Daniel Roman in June. The WBC and WBO super bantamweight champion may end up having a rematch with Brandon Figueroa in the featherweight division.

5. Terence Crawford

The WBO welterweight champion has scored wins over notable fighters such as Shawn Porter, Kell Brook, and Amir Khan after getting the title from Jeff Horn in 2018. The former champion at lightweight and super lightweight will defend his WBO title in his home state against David Avanesyan on December 10th.

4. Jermell Charlo

There have been a number of fighters that have been undisputed champions in recent years, but few have had the run like Jermell Charlo. He stopped Tony Harrison in their rematch, stopped Jeison Rosario with a body shot, and in May he stopped Brian Carlos Castaño to become undisputed. Jermell will defend his undisputed titles against Tim Tszyu on January 28th 2023.

3. Naoya Inoue

Inoue is likely one of the most powerful punchers in the sport, even at bantamweight. The multi-division champion made quick work of Nonito Donaire in June which was a rematch of the 2019 Fight of the Year. Inoue faces Paul Butler for the undisputed bantamweight title on December 13th

2. Errol Spence Jr.

The WBC, WBA, and IBF welterweight champion has wins over Shawn Porter, Danny Garcia, and most recently a stoppage victory over Yordenis Ugas to stay unbeaten. Spence will prepare for his next fight, coming in 2023.

1. Oleksandr Usyk

Usyk has become one of the most decorated fighters in recent years as he has won on every level. The Olympic gold medalist has won the undisputed cruiserweight championship, moved up to heavyweight and became unified champion within three years. In the rematch against Anthony Joshua, he toughed out a decision win to keep those titles at heavyweight. What’s next for Usyk could be a bout next year for the undisputed championship against Tyson Fury, and if he wins that he could be the first ever two division four belt undisputed champion.
