Boxing Rankings

1 January 2019: *** Jr. Lightweight Masayuki Ito stops undefeated Evgeny Chuprakov in seven rounds and moves up from #6 to #5.

Filipino Donnie Nietes took a split decision win over #2 ranked Jr. Bantamweight Kazuto Ioka. Nietes, who was bumped out of the rankings in November, is now #2 while Ioka slips to #3. McWilliams Arroyo is bumped out.

Flyweight Moruti Mthalane looks like the best in the division, and if he keeps on his current clip, he’ll be #1 or at least in position to challenge for the crown.

Undefeated Jr. Flyweight Hiroto Kyoguchi stops Hekkie Budler in eleven rounds and moves from #6 to #2 –and is thus in championship position. If Ken Shiro fights him anytime soon and it doesn’t end up a no-decision or a draw, we’ll have a true, actual, legit, jr. flyweight champion the world.
