On the flip side, BoxRec, the number-crunching boxing site, also refreshed their list with a tech twist – no human bias, just cold, hard stats:

- Terence Crawford

- Saul Alvarez

- Naoya Inoue

- Gervonta Davis

- Devin Haney

Ukraine's finest, Oleksandr Usyk and Vasiliy Lomachenko, clinched the 14th and 16th spots in BoxRec's digital domain.

Remember, BoxRec's ratings blend bytes and bouts, tallying up each pugilist's prowess without a panel's say. Previously, we spotlighted The Ring's P4P roll call, where Usyk and Lomachenko kept their ranks intact.
