Garcia, Kovalev Shake Things Up: Review, Ratings Update

by Cliff Rold

Two divisions saw shake-ups recently, one for a title and one for serious title contention.  The arrival of Mikey Garcia among the Featherweight elite is complete.  The arrival of Sergey Kovalev to be able to begin calling for a chance at the Light Heavyweight elite is here.

The impact of those wins and others are weighed below for this week’s ratings update.

Light Heavyweight:   Sergey Kovalev goes from unrated to in the thick of the top five.  Where exactly?  Click and see below.  Campillo, previously #2, drops but can only drop so far.  Ths stoppage drops him below Tavoris Cloud but keeps him ahead of Beibut Shumenov and Karo Murat.  All three men appeared to lose to Campillo in still relatively recent contests.  The arrival of Kovalev forces Andrej Fonfara from the top ten.

Middleweight/Jr. Middleweight: Gennady Golovkin and Gabriel Rosado came in rated at Middleweight and Jr. Middleweight respectively.  Nothing happened in the ring to change either man’s designation.

Jr. Lightweight: Juan Carlos Burgos appeared to do more than enough to leave New York with Roman Martinez’s belt.  He got stuck with a draw.  He moves up the ratings on the strength of what the judges clearly missed.

Featherweight: Mikey Garcia, previously #6, gets his first serious win in the top ten and a belt to go with it.  He may turn out to be the best in the division but he’ll need to do a bit more to overcome Chris John for the top slot.  Orlando Salido, previously #2, slides only a smidge as, given what is below him, and other recent outcomes for Salido, there isn’t that far to fall.

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