Boxing Rankings

October 2019: Super Middleweight David Benavidez jumps from #6 to #2 after doing what not enough of the current crop of contenders are doing these days –he fought a ranked contender. Anthony Dirrell, #4, dropped to #9 after one of Benavidez’s (legal) blows cut him over the eye in the sixth round and his corner stopped the bout. Callum Smith is ranked #1. That means that at this point, a Smith-Benavidez bout would crown the true champion of the division.

Welterweight Errol Spence Jr. finally faces a contender and after a hard-fought and very close battle, takes a split decision over Shawn Porter (#4). Spence knocked Porter down in the 11th to clinch the decision, but Porter did well enough to hold onto his current ranking. Spence is now #1 in the world in the division and also moves up to #8 on the P4P List. Pacquiao, who defeated Thurman (who was also ranked #4 at that time) is now #2.

Spence-Pacquiao would still crown the true welterweight champion of the world if it happens soon.

But what about Terence Crawford? The better question is “where are you Terence Crawford?” Crawford remains both #3 and out in the cold. Given the fact that he has taken 2 legitimate crowns already, many –including this writer- believe that he is the top P4P fighter today, but he is idling and unless he gets serious fights against serious contenders (that is, Spence or Pacquiao) soon, he will be out of that conversation too.

At Jr. Welterweight, Mario Barrios defeated a game and determined Batyr Akhmedov and enters at #10. Members were all over the place on his entry. Two of the three chairs proposed him to enter at #9, one chair didn’t think he should enter as of yet, and several members agreed. Enough members argued that he should enter at #10 and that ended up being most reflective of the will of the board and the most sensible placement.
