A listing of boxing’s elite initially of 2019
As we start the brand new 12 months, it’s honest to say that boxing has no dominant pound-for-pound king.
Not like in some previous eras – comparable to Floyd Mayweather’s not too way back – there’s now real debate relating to who’s the perfect fighter in boxing right now.
The pound-for-pound argument might be some of the contentious in boxing and everybody appears to have an opinion on it.
Some rank the perfect fighters on the earth primarily based purely on the style of their performances – how they appear.
Some rank them primarily based purely on their résumés and weigh up who has the perfect recorded wins.
Some take different elements comparable to exercise and official outcomes into consideration, too, that means the entire thing turns into one huge complicated mess.
Subsequently, we’re going to put out our standards (primarily based roughly on Ring Journal’s pound-for-pound standards) for this listing proper now:
- Consequence – The official consequence at all times stands and finally trumps the opposite elements. The opposite three are all equally vital.
- Efficiency – The way by which a fighter wins or loses.
- Résumé – The opponents crushed/titles gained.
- Exercise – How usually a fighter is preventing in opposition to prime stage opposition.
