Pound-for-Pound Update 6-24-17

There have been a number of changes in the Saturday Night Boxing Pound-for-Pound List since the last update in March. The two most important changes involved the knockout victories from Andre Ward (over Sergey Kovalev) and Errol Spence, Jr. (against Kell Brook). Ward's eighth-round knockout of Kovalev cements his status as the top fighter in the sport. With the loss, Kovalev drops from #2 to #7. Errol Spence makes his debut in the Rankings after his 11th-round KO victory over Kell Brook. Spence enters the List at #17. 

Vasyl Lomachenko has also rocketed up the rankings with his knockout win over Jason Sosa. Lomachenko moves up from #14 to #10. Finally, Tim Bradley has been removed from the Rankings due to over a year of inactivity.
