Pound-for-Pound Update 11-9-20

It's been over seven months since the last full update of the Saturday Night Boxing Pound-for-Pound List, and with many top fighters in action in October, it's time to see how things stand. The most consequential shake-up in the Rankings can be attributed to Teofimo Lopez's unanimous decision victory over Vasiliy Lomachenko. With the impressive win, Lopez enters the Rankings at #5 while Lomachenko drops to #14.  

Jermell Charlo also makes his debut in the Rankings. With his knockout victory over Jeison Rosario, he now has three belts at 154 lbs., and a very impressive resume at the weight. He enters the Rankings at #9. 

Stopping Carlos Cuadras in a highly entertaining rematch of their 2017 fight, Juan Estrada moves up one place in the Rankings from #7 to #6. Estrada's 115-lb. rival, Roman Gonzalez, won a unanimous decision on the same card, defeating Israel Gonzalez. With the victory, Gonzalez, the former pound-for-pound king, moves up a spot to #18.  

Leo Santa Cruz and Josh Warrington dropped out of the Rankings. Santa Cruz lost by knockout to Gervonta Davis last month. He had been ranked #16. Warrington had been ranked at #20.
