World Boxing Association Ranking
Four WBA Champions Among the Top 10 P4P.

The first five months of boxing were intense for 2018, and four champions of the World Boxing Association (WBA) remained within the top ten in the most important pound-for-pound rankings in the world, with the highlight being the dispute between the Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko and the Kazakh Gennady Golovkin for the number one position.

After the battles that both held in May, the diversity of opinions has placed them on the throne as successor to the legendary five-time world champion Floyd Mayweather, who decided to retire in August of 2017.

With Lomachenko’s dramatic 10-round victory on May 12th at the great Madison Square Garden over the brave Venezuelan Jorge Linares, which is likely be the main contender for the fight of the year, Vasyl was confirmed in the ranking of ESPN as the number one fighter in the world.

Lomachenko, WBA lightweight champion, is followed closely on this list by the Kazakh native Golovkin, also WBA champion but in the middleweight division. Third place is held by Terence Crawford, fourth Errol Spence, fifth Mikey Garcia, sixth Srisaket Sor Rungvisa, seventh Sergey Kovalev – another former WBA champion, eighth is Deontay Wilder, ninth Naoya Inoue – newly crowned champion of the WBA, and the tenth on the list is Keith Thurman, welterweight king of the WBA.

But in the ranking of the prestigious Ring Magazine, Gennady Golovkin appears as the king, having achieved the twentieth consecutive defense of the WBA 160-pound championship he won back in 2010.  GGG knocked out Vanes Maritosyan in two rounds in May at the always great StubHub Center venue and was confirmed as the king of the division.

In this list, the Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko appears second followed by Crawford, Canelo, Mikey, Rungvisai, Inoue, Spence, Kovalev and then Guillermo Rigondeaux closes out the rankings of the top 10.
