Boxing Rankings

18 June 2019: *** There was a frenzy at Cruiserweight this past week. Number-one ranked Mairis Briedis demolished fourth-ranked Krzysztof Glowacki before a hometown crowd so racuous that referee Robert Byrd couldn’t hear the bell ring. This win probably should be overturned by the Latvian boxing commission and declared a “No Contest” as it was riddled with enough mistakes and fouls to cast doubt on the result. Glowacki hit Briedis with a rabbit punch in the second round and Briedis responded with a spinning elbow to the side of Glowacki’s chin. Glowacki went down, and Briedis had a point deducted. Glowacki was alotted no extra time to recover. Briedis scored a legit knockdown before the end of the round, but after the end of the round he another one. He admitted that he’d heard the bell while the referee admitted that he didn’t hear the bell and so allowed it to continue about ten seconds into the one-minute rest. Glowacki never recovered and was stopped in the third. The chairs’ proposal to drop Glowacki from #4 to #6 was overruled by a trend that sought to leave Glowacki where he was.

Ilunga Makabu, who made a home for himself in the lower end of the division’s rankings, returns, this time to #9 after a wild fight and a good win over unranked Dmitry Kudryashov. Number-three ranked Yunier Dorticos scored a KO of the Year candidate over #5-ranked Andew Tabiti. Tabiti slips to #10.

Jesse Hart, #5 at Super Middleweight, exits the division and makes room for Avni Yildirim. His debut at Light Heavyweight was a real statement. He easily overcame the formerly formidable Sullivan Barrera to enter the division at #7. Barrera slips from #7 to #10. ***
