Pound For Pound

With a little more luck on the count against Donaire, it could have been five straight top ten stoppages. Regardless, Donaire gave him some scary moments and we learned Inoue is more than an offensive dynamo. Foes who know what sort of frightful finishing pop awaits them now have to reckon with the evidence that Inoue can take as good as he gives and come back harder. Inoue has a mandatory on tap and Casimero will have to get by cagey veteran Guillermo Rigondeaux.
Spence showed real chops against Brook and Peterson and dug deep in a fantastic battle with Porter. With the fight seemingly still up for grabs, a knockdown in round eleven stamped a big unification victory. Spence has never been short on guts.
He went on the road to win his first title from a Brook who had never lost at welterweight and Spence got better as the fight moved along.
Then he dominated Peterson who had, outside of a blowout loss to Lucas Matthysse, never been an easy out. Spence in his previous two fights handed first career stoppage losses to a Leonard Bundu and Chris Algieri who had taken Keith Thurman and Manny Pacquiao, respectively, the distance.
Mikey Garcia thought he saw something before the fight. The southpaw can box, has size and speed, can punch, and he knows how to finish. Usyk, of course, will need to prove he can do the impossible a second time considering Joshua, a true global superstar, entered the Pound For Pound with a rematch clause. Yet nothing about Usyk's surprise win was a fluke. Now, Usyk moves up even further on the P4P list mostly because he embodies a key element that makes up the spirit of the rankings: regardless of the weight class he has competed in, he has proven to be elite by unifying titles in both and relying on his dazzling pure skill to do so.

A hiccup at light heavyweight in March while attempting to become a two-division champion did nothing to question whether Pound For Pound is still the best pound fighter in the world today. His UFC shutout of Marvin Vettori in their rematch was masterful, setting the stage for a another rematch with former Pound For Pound Robert Whittaker.
The wizard of Pound For Pound appeared to quiet any remaining skeptics by how fiercely he defended his title against Brian Ortega at UFC
