Pound-for-Pound Update 8-11-14

The major change to the Saturday Night Boxing pound-for-pound list is the continued ascension of middleweight titlist Gennady Golovkin, who recently scored one of the most impressive wins of his career by knocking out former unified titleholder Daniel Geale in three rounds. Golovkin moves up from #20 to #14 on the SNB Top Fighters list. Right above Golovkin is Danny Garcia, who remains at the #13 spot after his second-round stoppage of Rod Salka. Although Garcia's KO victory was dominant, Salka was an undistinguished opponent; thus, Garcia's win doesn't warrant consideration for higher placement in the Rankings at this time. The complete Top-20 pound-for-pound list is below: 
  1. Floyd Mayweather
  2. Andre Ward
  3. Wladimir Klitschko
  4. Manny Pacquiao
  5. Juan Manuel Marquez
  6. Tim Bradley
  7. Guillermo Rigondeaux
  8. Carl Froch
  9. Roman Gonzalez
  10. Bernard Hopkins
  11. Adonis Stevenson
  12. Miguel Cotto
  13. Danny Garcia
  14. Gennady Golovkin
  15. Anselmo Moreno
  16. Nonito Donaire
  17. Juan Estrada
  18. Saul Alvarez
  19. Takashi Uchiyama
  20. Mikey Garcia
