BoxingScene's Ratings Update: Cotto, Algieri, More

by Cliff Rold

Cruiserweight: Youri Kalenga, off the strength of his split decision win over previously Mateusz Masternak, enters the top ten.

Middleweight: Miguel Cotto assumes the championship mantle while Sergio Martinez slips to the number three slot.  It remains to be seen if Martinez will fight again.

Jr. Middleweight: Miguel Cotto exits the top ten.  In at the ten slot is James Kirkland though his struggle to stay active might make him a placeholder.

Welterweight: Devon Alexander and Robert Guerrero switch places off their most recent performances on the same card.

Jr. Welterweight: Chris Algieri’s upset of Ruslan Provodnikov sees him enter the top ten and forces Viktor Postol out of the ratings.

Lightweight: Terrence Crawford’s thrilling win over Yuriorkis Gamboa sees him move into the top contender’s slot for the vacant lineal crown while Gamboa’s effort, given the lack of depth at Lightweight, earns him a small bump.  Titlist Richar Abril exits for inactivity.  Dejan Zleticanin’s upset of Ricky Burns, and previous win over rated Petr Petrov, earns him a slot in the top ten.

Featherweight: Daniel Ponce De Leon, off a loss and subsequent retirement, exits the top ten.  Vasyl Lomachenko enters off his win over Gary Russell Jr.

Jr. Featherweight: Cristian Mijares exits to campaign at 126.  Shingo Wake enters the top ten.

Jr. Bantamweight: McJoe Arroyo makes an explosive entry into the top ten in the wake of his dominant knockout of former Flyweight titlist Tyson Marquez.  Oleydong Sithsamerchai is forced out of the top ten.

Flyweight: Tyson Marquez exits the top ten after his third knockout loss in six fights.  Former Olympian McWilliams Arroyo, a looming mandatory for Amnat Ruenroeng, enters the top ten.

Jr. Flyweight: Denver Cuello exits for inactivity.  Ganigan Lopez and Paipharob Kokietgym are new to the top ten.

Strawweight: Fahlan Sakreerin gets an overdue removal from the ratings as he is gone from the division.  Ryuji Hara enters the top ten.

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

[QUOTE=RetroSpeed05;14745837]Sergio was already the established Lineal Champ, anyone that beats him ranked or not will be the new Lineal champ. Rankings only works when there isn't a Lineal champ in the division. For Example 154 had no Lineal Champ so…
