The reputable ESPN.com published its latest world boxing pound-for-pound ratings and listed Senator Manny Pacquiao at No. 7 after a successful comeback fight against Jessie Vargas in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The ESPN ratings kept the undefeated Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (46-0, 38 KOs) at the top of the P4P list at No. 1. His last fight was a UD12 over Carlos Cuadras on Sept. 10, 2016.

Rated No. 3 is Sergy Kovalev (30-0-1, 26 KOs) who last won UD12 over Isaac Chilemba on July 11, 2016. He will face Andre Ward on November 19, 2016.

Placed No. 4 by ESPN, Terence Crawford (29-0, 20 KOs) was victorious UD12 against Viktor Postol on July 23, 2016. His is scheduled to fight John Molina Jr. next on December 10, 2016.

Andre Ward (30-0, 15 KOs) who recently prevailed by UD12 versus Alexander Brand on August 6, 2016, is at No. 5, will battle Kovalev next in one of the most awaited P4P fights.

Then Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KOs) followed at No. 7 after regaining his WBO welterweight title by UD12 versus Vargas last November 5, 2016.

Ranked No. 8, Vasyl Lomachenko (6-1, 4 KOs) stopped Roman "Rocky" Martinez by KO5 on June 11, 2016. He was slated to face Nonito Donaire tormentor Nicholas Walters on November 26, 2016.

Another Donaire spoiler Guillermo Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs) is at No. 9. He last won by TKO2 over James Dickens on July 16, 2016.
