Pound for pound is always a tough debate and a bone of contention for boxing fans the world over due to the sheer subjective nature of it.
Everyone has an opinion on who they think the best boxer in the world regardless of weight class is and it’s seldom you’d see someone stand out as head and shoulders above the rest.
The last pound for pound number one consensus will tell you was Floyd Mayweather but even for him people kept doubting his merits for the mythical title right up to the Manny Pacquiao fight.
Eventually he just beat everyone so even his biggest criticsrs had to concede he was the best.
Nowadays it appears that we have three men at the top at the moment in the form of Lomachenko, Errol Spence and perhaps Terence Crawford you could add to that pugilistic trio mix.
Is it conceivable now that Spence dominated Mikey Garcia in the manner he did recently that he warrants the top spot — or has he done quite enough yet to beat Lomachenkko for the gong?
Of course, a showdown for Spence with welterweight rival and fellow titlist Terence Crawford would go a long way to solving this exciting conundrum.
In many ways the fight is building as a fight to see who really is pound for pound the best.
What a time for boxing with so much talent throughout the weight divisions at the moment.
Lomachenko for his part takes on Anthony Crolla next and Crawford takes on Amir Khan next up.
Other pound for pound top fighters such as Canelo Alvarez returns to action in May against Danny Jacobs.
Expect this debate to really heat up over the summer months among fight fans.
