Pound-for-Pound Update 12-23-17

The biggest change in the Saturday Night Boxing Pound-for-Pound List is the continued rise of Vasyl Lomachenko. Earlier this month, Lomachenko dominated undefeated junior featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux, forcing him to retire on his stool after the sixth round. With the win, Lomachenko moves up from #7 to #2 in the Rankings while Rigondeaux drops from #12 to #14. 

One other note in the Rankings: there's been speculation that Kazuto Ioka (currently ranked #20) will be retiring. As of now, no official announcement has been made. For the time being, he will remain in the Rankings until there is further clarification regarding his career.

1.    Terence Crawford
