BoxingScene Ratings Update: Klitschko, Pacquiao, More

By Cliff Rold

It’s been a few weeks and boxing’s results have created plenty of movement in the ratings.  There are new titlists, enduring champions, and plenty of stake in a May chock full of rated fighters in action. 

And a sparse year looks to only be getting better as big fights keep coming well into July.  Assume more change is coming.  For now…   

This is the BoxingScene ratings update.
 
Heavyweight:
Wladimir Klitschko remains with some big fights on the horizon to determine future challengers.  Heavyweight is going to shake out in a big way in 2014.

Cruiserweight: Guillermo Jones failed a drug test, again, forcing the cancellation of his rematch with Denis Lebedev.  Jones exits the ratings.  Mateusz Masternak returns to the top ten.

Light Heavyweight: Beibut Shumenov’s loss to Bernard Hopkins sees him slip a bit but with no one winning anything big below him there isn’t far to drop.      

Welterweight: With his win over Timothy Bradley, Manny Pacquiao returns to the top contenders slot beneath lineal champion Floyd Mayweather.  Shawn Porter drives Pauli Malignaggi from the top ten, making room for a return for Adrien Broner.

Jr. Welterweight: Now clearly campaigning at Welterweight, Amir Khan exits the top ten (with a big fight looming this weekend).  Jessie Vargas enters the top ten off his rugged decision over Khabib Allakhverdiev.  Lucas Matthysse’s epic struggle with John Molina was great entertainment but his last two outings suffer in comparison to Ruslan Provodnikov.  They switch places.

Lightweight: Omar Figueroa may or may not have deserved the decision over Jerry Belmontes, but the performance itself costs him a drop in the ratings.

Jr. Lightweight: Miguel Berchelt, previously #10, exits on a first round loss.  Bryan Vasquez, whose only loss is to division leader Takashi Uchiyama, enters the top ten.

Featherweight: Hozumi Hasegawa’s loss to Kiko Martinez at 122 lbs. sees him exit the ratings.  Lee Selby, on the strength of a stoppage over Rendall Munroe, enters the top ten.

Bantamweight: Joseph Agbeko has done nothing of note in the class too long to ignore and exits the top ten.  Randy Caballero enters.

Jr. Bantamweight: After his loss to Kohei Kono, Denkaosan Kaovitchit exits the top ten.  Oleydong Sithsamerchai, who hasn’t lost since being stopped by Kazuto Ioka in 2011 at 105, enters the top ten. 

Jr. Flyweight: Naoyo Inoue makes a strong debut in the top ten, entering at number two after a stoppage of Adrian Hernandez.  Inoue and Kazuto Ioka are going to make each other wealthier one day.  Inoue’s arrival forces out Rey Loreto.

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