Boxing Rankings

August 1 2019: The Jr. Welterweight division was the scene of a fight to remember on Saturday night. Third-ranked Jose Carlos Ramirez dropped #5-ranked Maurice Hooker in the first round and then stopped him in the sixth in a shoot-out that could well be in the running for “Fight of the Year.” Ramirez, in the opinion of a clear majority of members, now deserves to be ranked #2 based on that win, overtaking the talented Josh Taylor. Hooker drops to #7.

A proposal by the chairs to bump out jr. featherweight Tomoki Kameda in favor of Tramaine Williams failed. ***
