    By Ted Sares
    1. Canelo Alvarez (56-1-2)

    Super Middleweight

    His left hooks have become more destructive. No longer a slow starter, he has refined his ability to quickly close off the ring and stalk his prey. He is simply the best.

    2. Terence Crawford: (37-0)

    Welterweight

    If he doesn’t fight soon, he will fall in this listing.

    3. Naoya Inoue (20-0)

    Bantamweight

    Donaire exposed him as human but he is still exceptional..

    4. Errol Spence Jr. (27-0)

    Welterweight

    His bout with Pacquiao will tell us all we need to know.

    5. Teofimo Lopez (16-0)

    Lightweight

    Aussie George Kambosos Jr. should be easy work.

    6. Vasiliy Lomachenko (14-2)

    Lightweight

    His match with Masayoshi Nakatani is no gimme. Loma must be ready.

    7. Juan Francisco Estrada (42-3)

    Junior Bantamweight

    In common with the great Lennox Lewis, he is undefeated in rematches. Now a third meeting with Roman Gonzalez seems likely, though Sor Rungvisai looms.

    8. Josh Taylor (19-0)

    Light welterweight

    Wins over Prograis and Ramirez make this Scot the real deal. He has old school-type skills that enhance his aura.

    9. Emanuel Navarrete (33-1)

    Featherweight

    Four fights in 2019, three in 2020, and one so far in 2021. Activity, punch volume, stamina, and unorthodox techniques make this this guy a potential superstar.

    10. Tyson Fury (30-0-1)

    Heavyweight

    Heavies rarely make these kinds of lists but Fury is different. He has many of the same attributes as boxers in the lighter weights. He fights in a relaxed manner using proper distance, maintains a tight defense, uses a stinging jab, and launches a destructive right hand when the opportunity presents itself.

    Others: David Benevidez (24-0), Gervonta Davis (26-0), Oleksandr Usyk (18-0), Gennady Golovkin (41-1-1), Oscar Valdez (29-0), Kazuto Ioka (26-2), Artur Beterbiev (16-0), Dmitry Bivol (18-0), Regis Prograis (26-1).

    Two to keep an eye on: Tim Tszyu (18-0) and Ryan Garcia (21-0)

    The uber experienced elite Manny Pacquiao is still demonstrably P4P and failure to include him in the top ten is some 💩 those BWAA boys might drop in a bowl because they DKSAB!

      Manny is too old and lacks the destructive power he once had. Spence will retire him. But Manny will have plenty of money with which to fund his run for President--if that's what he wants.

    Bob Mulkey says, "Ok, I am assuming PFP means pound for pound. Tyson Fury at 6’9” and 275…..that is some PFP, I know you said rarely…but he is a freaking monster!!!"

      Yes, but what makes him special is that he is has  a high Ring IQ and knows how to use his  extraordinary size. He is a one off.

      Well known commentator says, "Ted, this is exceptional. Complete and succinct." And I say many thanks.

      Duran-Joppy? No, but maybe something close.

    Tszyu-Hatton?? Look, Spence is good and young but compared to living legend Manny Pacquiao he’s woefully inexperienced and really hasn’t fought anybody close to Pac’s level yet.

    Winnable fight for Pacquiao.

    oh wait, Chavez-Tszyu??

      Tszyu is very good and arguably is the best fighter Down Under. Garcia has fast hands and is an exceptional body puncher.

      Spence will body punch Paq into submission if he can catch up with him. Spence is on the elevator moving up. Pac is on the one moving down. The inflection point favors Spence.
