Boxing Rankings

24 July 2018: *** Oleksandr Usyk has officially emerged as the one and only Cruiserweight King —the first, by a strict application of common sense and the charter– since October 2009 when Tomasz Adamek abdicated. Ranked #1 last week, he defeated #2-ranked Murat Gassiev in a lopsided unanimous decision. He has also advanced on the P4P List from #8 to #4. Vasyl Lomachenko is ranked #1 which means that Ukraine, which has a little more than 1/2 of 1% of the world’s population and where the median age is 40, can boast 20% of the world’s best boxers. That’s no small achievement.

Mairis Briedis, who defeated Brandon Deslaurier moves up from #2 to #1 and Gassiev remains at #2. Both fighters were defeated by the new cruiserweight king most recently, but Breidis lost better.

Jr. Middleweight Jaime Munguia (#5) faced a driven Liam Smith (#10), who not only did his sit-ups, but came in with an offensive strategy replete with overhand rights and left hooks at the ready when Munguia leaned to his right against the former and was tagged with the latter. Munguia, 21, isn’t old enough to care. He was rung a few times but kept coming like the rising tide and took over as the gray-headed Smith faded down the stretch. Munguia moves from #5 to #4 and Smith exits the rankings. Kell Brook enters at #10. ***
