  • Shock in the boxing world as consensus pound for pound #1 Andre Ward retires. This has been a transitional year of sorts for the sport with many big names bowing out.
  • Ward bows out with the trifecta: legacy, faculties and finances intact, and will surely enter the hall of fame in five years. He was the best boxer of his generation.
  • Crawford is the new #1 and it will make for great viewing to see him take on the likes of Thurman and Spence at 147 in the next few years.
  • Canelo enters at #10
