In boxing, it's definitely possible to be a great fighter without great punching power. Defensive genius Willie Pep, for instance, had a ratio of just 27 percent, but he appears high on any credible all-time, pound-for-pound ranking. But big power sure helps make things even in a hurry or else make sure they never get even in the first place. Just as in baseball, where the best offensive strategy is ultimately a three-run homer, in boxing, nothing is more efficient than simply knocking your opponent out.
Terence Allan Crawford (born September 28, 1987) is an American professional boxer. He is currently a unified light welterweight world champion, having held the WBO title since 2015; the WBC, Ring magazine and lineal titles since 2016; and the WBA title since August 2017. In August 2017, before vacating the IBF title, he reigned as the undisputed light welterweight champion and was the most recent undisputed champion in the division since Kostya Tszyu in 2004. Crawford is also most recent male boxer to hold all four major world titles in boxing (WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO, as well as The Ring and lineal) since Jermain Taylor in 2005, and is one of only four boxers in history to do so after Taylor, Bernard Hopkins, and Cecilia Brækhus. Crawford is a two-weight world champion, having previously held the WBO, Ring, and lineal lightweight titles from 2014 to 2015. As of August 2017, he is ranked as the world's third best active boxer, pound for pound, by the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board and BoxRec, and fourth by The Ring. In 2014, Crawford was named Fighter of the Year by the Boxing Writers Association of America and ESPN. Stylistically, Crawford is known for his fast hand speed, formidable punching power and defensive skills, as well as his ability to comfortably switch hit from orthodox to southpaw ====================================================== Weight(s) Lightweight Light welterweight Height 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) Reach 70 in (178 cm) Stance Orthodox ====================================================== Soundtrack: 300 Violin Orchestra Fast Version⁄No Copyright Free Music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAxXBH6SjZ0

In just 12 career fights, Vasiliy Lomachenko has gone from a feared amateur pugilist to the best fighter on the planet, and with comparisons to such all-time greats as Floyd Mayweather and Sugar Ray Robinson, is it time to start asking if Loma is the best ever?
