Pound for pound

Terence Crawford remains at ninth after his dominant stoppage win over John Molina.


Luis Ortiz stays at third with a stoppage win over unranked Dave Allen – though the Cuban is running the risk of dropping a few places if he keeps treading water. Anthony Joshua holds on to his No 4 position by flattening a hopeless Eric Molina while No 5 Joseph Parker is hot on his heels with a win over Andy Ruiz, who remains at ninth.


Krzystof Wlodarczyk sticks at seven with a win over an unranked opponent.


Unbeaten Eleider Alvarez stays at No 7 with a decision win over an opponent not ranked in our ratings. He now has his sights set on Lucian Bute.


No 9 Callum Smith sends Luke Blackledge into oblivion. As Blackledge is not ranked, Smith does not move.


Jermall Charlo defended his IBF world title in destructive fashion, hammer unranked but dangerous Julian Williams to remain at third.


Division leader Terence Crawford tightens his grip on the 140lb weight class with a dominant win over John Molina, who stays at eighth.


Abner Mares upsets Jesus Cuellar to enter at No 6, with Cuellar moving down a space to seventh.


Scott Quigg leaves the rankings as he made his featherweight debut. Hozumi Hasegawa also leaves after announcing his retirement. Jonathan Guzman and Nehomar Cermeno enter at nine and 10 respectively.


Kal Yafai enters at No 5 after dethroning WBA champion Luis Concepcion. Due to Yafai’s dominance and the face he missed weight, Concepcion leaves the rankings completely.
