Boxing Rankings

5 November 2019  There simply aren’t many middleweight champions in history who can exceed Alvarez’s latest accomplishment. Harry Greb, a true beserker who spent years before his middleweight reign picking on all-time great light heavyweights and heavyweights comes to mind. Mickey Walker was a welterweight champion who went on to take the middleweight crown before invading the light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions. Dick Tiger and Bernard Hopkins were among the few middleweight champions who later became light heavyweight champions.

If Canelo wants to walk with giants, he should face Division King Artur Beterbiev. Beat him, become a double champion, and anyone who denies his all-time greatness will get laughed out of the room. Of course, the expectation is that Canelo will prove he is clean by submitting to the highest VADA standard of testing. Without that, his accomplishments will remain suspect. As it is now, Canelo is #3, Kovalev #4 and Anthony Yarde is bumped out.

Brian Castano moves from #6 to #5 at Jr. Middleweight after defeating tough Wale Omotoso in five rounds. Some, including this writer, believe that Erislandy Lara should remain over him for now, but were outnumbered.

Ryan Garcia makes his debut in the Lightweight rankings at #10 after knocking out Romero Duno in one round. There was a late rally for Javier Fortuna to enter instead, but it was too late to be convincing. Lee Selby is bumped out.

At Jr. Bantamweight, Francisco Rodriguez Jr. moves up from #10 to more secure ground at #9. He defeated William Riera and has remained undefeated ever since losing a split decision to Moises Fuentes four years ago. ***
