Boxing Rankings

10 March 2020: Heavyweight Adam Kownacki, ranked #10 last week, exits the rankings after running into hard shots by a revamped Robert Helenius. Helenius has not been in the rankings since six years ago this month, when he exited his #7 spot due to inactivity. And he very nearly didn’t enter this week either as he barely beat out Joseph Parker, who stopped an able Shawndell Terell Winters last week. As it was, Helenius stopped a contender, and that got him to #10 via a very slim majority of the board.

Junior Featherweight TJ Doheny had his second consecutive fight at featherweight and so exits his #5 ranking in this divisions. That opens it up for the entry of Carlos Castro, who defeated Jesus Ruiz a couple of weeks ago. Castro is now #10.
