Pound-for-Pound Update 9-18-14

With the recent action in the flyweight division, there have been a number of changes to the Saturday Night Boxing pound for pound list. Here are the updates:

Roman Gonzalez (3, previous rank 9):  With his dominant ninth-round knockout over lineal flyweight champion Akira Yaegashi earlier this month, Gonzalez has now won titles in three divisions and also holds key victories over Juan Estrada (who will be listed below) and Francisco Rodriguez Jr. (the #1 strawweight). At 40-0 with 34 KOs (including 10-0, 6 KOs in world title fights), Gonzalez, from Nicaragua, continues to ascend the pound-for-pound rankings. He moves up six spots from #9 to #3. 

Juan Estrada (11, previous rank 17): Earlier in September, Estrada knocked out hard-hitting Giovani Segura in the 11th round, capping off an impressive 18 months where he has defeated former pound-for-pound fighter Brian Viloria and flyweight contenders Milan Melindo and Richie Mepranum. Estrada, from Mexico, features an impressive combination of pure boxing skills, athleticism and power. He rises six spots on the Saturday Night Boxing Top-20 Fighters list to #11.
