The top boxers in the world are on a hiatus.

No fighter on the Boxing Junkie pound-for-pound list is scheduled to fight until No. 7 Canelo Alvarez, the undisputed super middleweight champion, faces No. 13 Gennadiy Golovkin a third time on Sept. 17 in Las Vegas.

And No. 15 Shakur Stevenson will defend his junior lightweight titles against Robson Conceicao on Sept. 23.

Beyond that no pound-for-pounder has a fight set, although No. 1 Terence Crawford is expected to face No. 4 Errol Spence Jr. in October.
