Lomachenko Ascends Pound For Pound Rankings. But Do You Agree With His Position?

Where Should Lomachenko Be After His 10th Round Stoppage Over Jorge Linares?

By Aaron Cooper   - @intuboxingfm

The debate over the number one spot in the mythical pound for pound debate is contentious. These rankings like our opinions are always subjective, and that will never change. 

Whether you love him or hate him there can be no arguments that three-weight world champion, Vasyl Lomachenko is simply one of the finest boxers our sport has to offer. Since arriving on the scene against Jose Ramirez in October 2013, Lomachenko has fought twelve times, winning eleven times, all of which were world title fights. Beating seven world champions in the process. So great are his achievements that his opponent's win-loss record is an astonishing 286-15.

As always and as I alluded to in the opening line of this piece is that boxing is subjective. The Ring Magazine have made him the #2 in the sport right now, yet ESPN has made him their numero uno. Depending on who you ask, the victory over Linares in which Lomachenko picked up the Lineal as wells as the WBA Lightweight titles either confirms he is the very best, or that he is not quite there yet. 

The three most reliable pound for pound sources in Ring Magazine, ESPN and The Boxing Writers Association of America each have a different name that sits above all the rest. Lomachenko for ESPN, middleweight king, Gennady Glovkin for Ring Magazine and former undisputed super-lightweight champion, Terence 'Bud' Crawford for the BWAoA. 

In truth, these are the three names that should be in the top three of ANY boxing fans list worldwide and there is a strong argument for each. 

In Lomachenko's case, the stats in his boxing career are undeniable. How many can claim to have victories over Guillermo Rigondeaux and Linares, both in many's pound for pound list themselves at one time or another?  Why don't we throw a win over Gary Russell Jr in there for good measure too? Lomachenko is a throwback to the days in which the best fought the best, and that is all he wants to do. He has come under some criticism for how he struggled against Linares at times, but let us not forget. Linares is no pushover and an elite level fighter that was missing a star performance. A performance that in this journalists opinion, whilst he lost we finally got to see. 

My personal opinion is that Gennady Golovkin sits atop the mythical league table. But Vasyl Lomachenko is one or two performances away from knocking the middleweight kingpin from the top of the mountain.
