The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / The Grueling Truth’s Top 10 Boxers pound for pound (4/29/16)

The Grueling Truth’s Top 10 Boxers pound for pound (4/29/16)

Publish Date: 04/29/2016
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

Top 10 Boxers pound for pound 4/29/16

1) Roman Gonzalez (44-0, 38 KO)

Good win over the tough McWilliams Arroyo, Arroyo found out what all Gonzalez’s other opponents have discovered, he will out box you and wear you down. Maybe the best flyweight since Miguel Canto.

ย 2) Andre Ward (29-0, 15 KO)

Ward because of managerial problems has been slowed down the last few years, it looks like he is starting to finally get everything back in line. A showdown with Kovalev looms.

3) Sergey Kovalev (29-0-1, 26 KO)

Keeps rolling and hopefully looking to his first superfight this fall or winter against the guy just above him in these rankings Andre Ward.

4) Gennady Golovkin (34-0, 31 KO)

Win against wade was fully expected, he is running out of serious challengers at middleweight. Canelo Alvarez looms, that is he looms if Alvarez has any interest in fighting Golovkin?

5) Guillermo Rigondeaux (16-0, 10 KO)

The man everybody hopes gets old or goes away, seems the top fighters at his weight claa are in no hurry to fight him.

6) Saul Alvarez (46-1-1, 32 KO)

Should have no problem with the smaller Khan, then the question will be does he really want to fight Golovkin?

7) Terrence Crawford (28-0, 20 KO)

Crawford is an exceptional blend of speed, skill, and has power to go with it. Against Gamboa, he showed some whiskers and will to go with it. There is a feeling looking at Crawford that this is the total package and his stock should only rise in the next few years if and as he continues to win (and if he gets fights that matter).

8) Manny Pacquiao (58-6-2, 38 KO)

Looked good dominating Timothy Bradley again, was that really his last fight? Looked like he still had plenty left in the tank.

9) Juan Francisco Estrada (33-2, 24 KO)

Gave our number one Roman Gonzalez hell, which should tell you all you need to know about Estrada.

10) James DeGale (22-1, 14 KO)

DeGale showed he could handle the pressure of being away from home with style. In the States, he dropped 2004 US Bronze Medalist Andre Dirrell twice en route to a decision win, out boxing a man who had won three straight in a 2014 comeback of sorts. Then DeGale headed to Canada and faced a Lucian Bute who showed up better than he had in years. Showing more aggression and combination punching than he had against Dirrell, DeGale left the determined Bute with only a moral victory. Speed, skill, size and a solid boxing IQ, DeGale has everything but consistent single shot power. A lone, debatable hiccup against domestic rival George Groves is well behind him. A unification bout with resurgent Badou Jack would go a long way to reigniting the 168 lb. class.
