BoxingScene Ratings Update - Canelo, Leo Santa Cruz

by Cliff Rold

Canelo Alvarez got back in the saddle and the machine has to be happy.  There’s no shame in losing to Floyd Mayweather.  A loss to Alfredo Angulo would have been a disaster.

It was never really an issue in the ring.

Does it change the look of the ratings?

This is the BoxingScene ratings update.

Jr. Middleweight: Alvarez didn’t have to come off the floor twice against Angulo the way the man in front of him, Erislandy Lara, did last year.  However, Lara beat Trout far easier than Alvarez.  Call it a wash and both men retain their positions.  The unfortunate cancellation of the Carlos Molina-Jermell Charlo match on the Alvarez-Angulo undercard means no changes for Molina, up or down, and it remains to be seen when Molina will be back in the ring.

Jr. Featherweight: Leo Santa Cruz dominated on Saturday and gets arguably the best win of his career to date.  Only 25, Santa Cruz hasn’t had his best match yet and when it arrives it is likely to be a doozy.  It’s too bad the Cold War between Golden Boy and Top Rank means there won’t be a clash with World Champion Guillermo Rigondeaux anytime soon.  Scott Quigg moves up on the basis of reevaluation after the Mijares loss.  All of the men previously in front of Quigg, #8 last week, lost their last fight.  Mijares worked hard to get back into the title scene but his best days are behind him and it won’t get any easier from here.  

The full results of note and the total impact on the ratings are a click away.

Cliff, you have Steve Cunningham way too high at heavyweight. He hasn't had a win over a single top 50 HW, and was brutally KOed by Fury. Cunningham is about to get decapitated by age 42 Amir Mansour on April…
