Boxing Rankings

20 July 2021 – The much-anticipated World Championship Fight between #1-ranked Jermell Charlo and #2-ranked Brian Castano didn’t disappoint until the judges’ scorecards were read. One judge voted for Castano, another for Charlo, and the third saw it as a draw. Boxing was denied a new Jr. Middleweight Champion of the World as a result.

We expect Charlo-Castano II to happen sooner rather than later and encourage both fighters to insist on it.

Only one division saw rankings changes this week. Strawweight Ginjiro Shigeoka moves up form #8 to #7 after stopping undefeated countryman Toshiki Kawamitsu in 2 rounds. Shigeoka, a southpaw and only 21 with only 6 professional fights, is turning heads already. Melvin Jerusalem, who first appeared in the Transnational Strawweight rankings in January 2017, moves up from #10 to #9 with a win over Toto Landero. Pedro Taduran, who is coming off a loss, is now ranked in the vulnerable #10 position. We are happy to see both contenders moving up this week are enrolled in VADA.
