Transitioning from the usual suspects to unexpected entries, ‘The Ring’ Magazine’s latest Pound-for-Pound list has taken a bold turn. At the top, we find Terence Crawford, renowned for his win against Errol Spence. Following closely is Naoya Inoue, the Japanese powerhouse known for his knockout prowess.

However, as we delve deeper, the list takes intriguing turns. Dmitry Bivol, known for his recent high-profile victories, comfortably sits at number five. Then comes Devin Haney at six and Errol Spence Jr at seven, both exceptional but perhaps less expected in such high ranks. Gervonta Davis finds himself at eight, a placement that has sparked widespread discussion. Rounding out the top ten are Teofimo Lopez at nine, and Jesse ‘Bam’ Rodriguez at ten, who only recently won comfortably against Sunny Edwards.

The debate extends beyond these two boxers. With a touch of relief, another fan chimed in, “FINALLY THEY GOT RID OF LOMA,” indicating a shift in fan expectations and preferences regarding the top-tier boxers. Criticism didn’t stop there. Davis’ position continued to be a focal point of contention, with another person asserting, “Tank can’t be on the list with that bs resume.” Lastly, offering a constructive twist, one fan suggested, “Change tank for Beterbiev.”
