The State of The Light Heavyweight Division

Published on Jul 16, 2017

Sullivan Barrera beating Joe Smith Jr and Marcus Browne beating Sean Monaghan Saturday July 15th 2017. Got me thinking about the 175 pound division. I think it’s a really good division right now.
The best guy in the division is of course Andre Ward who is at or near the top of everyones pound for pound list. In my opinion fallowed by long reigning WBC champion Adonis Stevenson. Eleider Alvarez has quietly put himself at #3 in my opinion. In the video I have Sullivan Barrera and Marcus Browne interchangeable with each other at 4 & 5. Fallowed by Sergey Kovalev and Oleksandr Gvozdyk at 6 & 7. With more due diligence. I would at this time move Gvozdyk over Kovalev, and maybe consider him interchangeable with Barrera and Browne. At 8 I have Artur Beterbiev and 9 Dmitry Bivol. I’d make Beterbiev & Bivol interchangeable too. 10 was tough. First I came up with Joe Smith Jr. Than Nathan Cleverly for the 10th spot.
