Boxing Rankings

3 April 2018: *** Heavyweight Anthony Joshua enters the P4P List at #10 after confirming his top-contender status by defeating #3-ranked Joseph Parker, even if he didn’t quite look like a world-beater while at it. Parker demonstrated improved defensive skill but failed to mount an offense that would have given him a chance of winning. Alexander Povetkin advances from #7 to #6 after defeating David Price via fifth-round knockout.

The top Welterweight in the world, Keith Thurman exits the divisional rankings and the P4P List due to inactivity after his upcoming fight against an opponent to-be-named was postponed due to a bruised hand. Jamal James, who last knocked out former contender Diego Chaves, enters the divisional rankings at #10. The top welterweight in the world is now Errol Spence Jr.

Bantamweight Yonfrez Parejo drops from #7 to #10 after losing big to #1-ranked Ryan Burnett.

Akira Yaegashi (9) and Kosei Tanaka (5) both made good on their announcements to campaign at flyweight and jr. bantamweight respectively and exit the Jr. Flyweight rankings. Japan’s Tetsuya Hisada and the Philippines’ Rey Loreto enter at #9 and #10.

Please be aware that notwithstanding Golden Boy Promotion’s announcement today that Canelo Alvarez has withdrawn from his May 5 bout with Gennady Golovkin, we will await an announcement by the Nevada Athletic Commission regarding a possible suspension. ***
