Pound-for-Pound Update 11-18-19

There have been numerous changes to the Saturday Night Boxing Pound-for-Pound list since the last update in July. Toward the top, Saul Alvarez defeated Sergey Kovalev via 11th round knockout to win a light heavyweight title. Alvarez has now won major belts in three different weight classes and he moves up in the Rankings from #5 to #2.

Errol Spence beat Shawn Porter via split decision to become a unified titlist at welterweight. With the win, Spence rises a spot from #9 to #8. 

In another unification bout, Artur Beterbiev knocked out Oleksandr Gvozdyk in the 10th round in a light heavyweight showdown. Beterbiev, now 15-0, has stopped all of his opponents in his professional career. He debuts in the Rankings at #9. 

Also making his debut on the Pound-for-Pound list is Josh Taylor, who defeated Regis Prograis by majority decision to win the World Boxing Super Series tournament at 140 lbs. He now holds two titles at junior welterweight. He enters the Rankings at #15. 

Dropping out of the Rankings are Roman Gonzalez, who leaves because of over a year of inactivity, and Wanheng Menayothin, who continues to win at strawweight, but has been eclipsed in the Rankings by other fighters. Gonzalez had previously been ranked at #15 and Menayothin at #20.
