Boxing Rankings

12 September 2017: *** Roman Gonzalez, former Flyweight King and former top-dog at P4P, has met his Aaron Pryor. Srisaket Sor Rungvisai -a powerhouse pressure fighter who is unorthodox even for a southpaw- knocked him out in the fourth round. Alexis Arguello was born at Barrio Monsenor Lezcano in Managua in 1952. Gonzalez was born in the same place in 1987 and was mentored by Arguello. In 1982, Arguello reached too far over his natural weight and was stopped by Pryor. He was 30. Last Saturday night, Gonzalez reached too far and fell to Sor Rungvisai. He too was 30. He tumbles from #3 to #8 in the Jr. Bantamweight rankings and exits the P4P List.

Sor Rungvisai enters the P4P List at #10 and is now #1 in the division.

Naoya Inoue, lived up to his nickname (“Monster”) by toying with a larger opponent in Antonio Nieves and showcasing a stunning style rooted in excellent fundamentals and extraordinary poise and athleticism. If he faces Sor Rungvisai, and he should, the winner will crown the first True Jr. Bantamweight Champion since 1986.

A potential spoiler is Juan Francisco Estrada, who jumps from #9 to #3 after winning more certainly than the scorecards would indicate against a talented and playful spoiler in Carlos Cuadras. Cuadras slips from #4 to #5.

Cruiserweight Marco Huck (#10) was stopped by Oleksandr Usyk (#1) and exits the rankings. Dmitry Kudryashov, who avenged his only loss just last June and has knockouts for all of his 21 wins, enters at #10.

Super Middleweight David Benavidez moves up from #7 to #5 after a solid win against tough Romanian Ronald Gavril.
