World’s best 25 boxers ranked after Canelo beats Plant with Fury in top 5

Canelo Alvarez has been listed as the best boxer pound-for-pound at the moment despite the recent victories of WBC champion Tyson Fury and unified world champ Oleksandr Usyk.

The 31-year-old Mexican superstar has a superb 57-1-2 record and is undefeated since 2013 when he lost his fight against Floyd Mayweather.

Canelo has won titles in each of the four weight classes he’s competed in and was even dubbed the sport’s very first undisputed super-middleweight world champ.

The fighter beat Caleb Plant with a TKO in the 11th-round on Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas.

And as such, BoxRec has put the Mexico fighter at the very top of its current rankings of best active boxer in the world, the champion on a huge 964.5 points.

In second is Gennady Golovkin, someone who initially drew with Canelo before losing the rematch. He finished with 508.2 points.

Joining Canelo and Triple G is Fury, who received 456.8 points. The Gypsy King recently knocked out Deontay Wilder to round off a superb trilogy between the pair. The victory saw the 33-year-old retain his WBC title.

Meanwhile, Usyk, who stunningly stripped Anthony Joshua of the world titles in September, came in after Fury in number four spot in the rankings.

Posted below are the 25 best boxers in the world right now, according to BoxRec.

25. Naoya Inoue (141.4 points)

24. Dmitry Bivol (143.7 points)

23. Daniel Jacobs (147.4 points)
