Holding all things equal, who’s the best boxer on the planet?
Round By Round Boxing (RBRBoxing) surveys a distinguished and diverse panel of boxing writers, photographers, videographers, and podcasters, an award-winning scholar, and an Emmy-award winning sports anchor to answer this question, which helps to determine our Quarterly Pound-for-Pound (QP4P) Rankings.
Our panel considers each fighter’s skill, ability, longevity, activity level, and their level of competition. Equally important, our panelists take into account how well each boxer would fare against the other fighters on our list.
