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 alternatives of Lomachenko vs. Salido or Berchelt
NEXT:  DEC VS 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 Ward left no doubt with a stoppage over the Krusher in their highly anticipated rematch. Would love to see Ward face somebody like Gvozdyk, Bivol or Beterbiev, but after two rough fights with Kovalev I would be very surprised if that happened.
NEXT:  TBA
Expand/Contract #  3 - TERENCE CRAWFORD
As the boxing franchise in Nebraska, Crawford jumps into the top three after becoming the first boxer to ever hold all four major junior welterweight championships. Crawford is naturally orthodox, but so gifted he's fought the last two fights at southpaw and has barely lost a round.
NEXT:  TBA
Expand/Contract #  4 - GENNADY GOLOVKIN
The undisputed, undefeated middleweight champion of the world has shown some slippage as of late. He was the benefactor of a close decision over Daniel Jacobs in a fight that could have gone either way. Next thing you know the Golovkin-Alvarez fight gets made for September 16. The Alvarez braintrust is making a mistake here though, I expect Golovkin to pummel the improved, but outgunned Alvarez.
NEXT:  HBO PPV SEPTEMBER 16 VS CANELO ALVAREZ
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. One can only hope the Bobfather is able to make the first fight between a pair of two time gold medalists.
