Here it is, the top twenty pound for pound list according to Boxingtalk publisher G. Leon. There's been a ton of movement since our last update. Who's in? Who's out? Read on and see for yourself.  Last Update: July 8, 2015

Expand/Contract #  1 - VASYL LOMACHENKO
Never did I think that a boxer with less than ten bouts under his belt would ever head this list, but Vasyl Lomachenko is clearly the most skilled fighter in the world today. He's a one in ten million type of talent capable of making the most elite level athletic boxers look like plodding club fighters. I still want to see Lomachenko-Rigondeaux, but don't mind Bob Arum's alternative of Pacquiao-Lomachenko.
NEXT:  TBA
Expand/Contract #  2 - ANDRE WARD
In a word, longevity. He hasn't lost a fight since he was twelve years old and he has the best undefeated resume (Kessler, Abraham, Froch, Dawson, Kovalev) in boxing, BAR NONE. Although I thought Kovalev won a very close fight the first time around on November 19, Andre Ward wasn't the benefactor of a robbery and I expect he would win their potential rematch cleanly and by a comfortable distance.
NEXT:  TBA
Expand/Contract #  3 - SERGEY KOVALEV
Kovalev's light heavyweight reign came to its end via a questionable unanimous decision loss to Andre Ward. After ruling the division with an iron fist since he stopped Nathan Cleverly, Kovalev now must show the boxing world what he's made of as he attempts to rebound against a more technically sound boxer that appeared to figure him out midway through their bout. If anybody is capable of doing it's Kovalev, but he's got his work cut out for him.
NEXT:  TBA
Expand/Contract #  4 - GENNADY GOLOVKIN
Following the toughest test of his career in a fight that I believed he lost by the narrowest of margins to a determined Daniel Jacobs, GGG for the first time of his career, has shown vulnerability. Despite getting outboxed for a few rounds by welterweight champion Kell Brook, and struggling with Jacobs, GGG will still likely have to move up or down in weight to get the crossover fight he's been craving. Don't hold your breath if you think we're going to see GGG vs Canelo before 2018 at the earliest.
NEXT:  TBA ON HBO
Expand/Contract #  5 - GUILLERMO RIGONDEAUX
Limbo should be Rigondeaux's nickname since that's where his other worldly boxing talent has kept him for much of his career. A fighter of his caliber shouldn't have such a hard time getting on major networks, but when you're a technically brilliant boxer who refuses to take any unnecessary risks, this is the position in which you can expect to find yourself.
NEXT:  
Expand/Contract #  6 - MANNY PACQUIAO
Manny Pacquiao has the most impressive resume on this list without question and now that he's gotten Jesse Vargas out of the way, expect Pacquiao to make another major fight in 2017, hopefully against new pound for pound kingpin, Vasyl Lomachenko.
