After an extensive survey of the Boxing Monthly online team the ‘pound for pound’ results are in. Our writers were asked to provide their current P4P top ten, with boxers awarded ten points every time they were placed first, nine points every time they ranked second and so on, down to one point for tenth place. The results are as follows, with Roman Gonzalez crowned our first ever P4P king.

However, with bouts scheduled for five members of the top ten in the next three months - including number two P4P Andre Ward against number five Sergey Kovalev - it could soon be all change …
