Canelo Arguably Isn’t The Best Fighter In The World Anymore

It is safe to say that Canelo Alvarez (57-2, 39 KOs) can’t be considered the No.1 fighter in the world after losing to Dmitry Bivol — at least according to Boxing Junkie.

This was only the second time in his career that the Mexican superstar had tasted defeat in his career. One thing that surprised the neutrals was the way in which Alvarez dropped from his lofty standards.

Some people may argue that the undisputed 168-pound champion shouldn’t be criticized that much because he took a risk by moving up to face the 175-pounder. Moreover, the scores were not lopsided by any stretch (115-113 across all three cards).

In the world of sports, you are only as good as the last match that you have played. So, let’s see what happens the next time Canelo sets foot into the ring.

Here’s Boxing Junkie’s new pound-for-pound list:

  1. Terence Crawford
  2. Naoya Inoue
  3. Oleksandr Usyk
  4. Errol Spence Jr.
  5. Tyson Fury
  6. Dmitry Bivol
  7. Canelo Alvarez
  8. Vasiliy Lomachenko
  9. Juan Francisco Estrada
  10. Gennadiy Golovkin
  11. Artur Beterbiev
  12. Gervonta Davis
  13. Jermall Charlo
  14. Shakur Stevenson
