Segura Moves Up: BoxingScene Review and Ratings Update

by Cliff Rold

The ratings didn’t see much in the way of movement this week.  Gennady Golovkin handled business as expected, maintaining his slot as the number one contender at Middleweight, scoring a big second round knockdown before battering Stevens into a surrender following round eight.

As a bonus to an otherwise one-sided affair, Golovkin took a few big shots in spots and, well, he took them.

Be afraid other Middleweights…be very afraid.

Heavyweight Mike Perez made a case for a rating in a very good heavyweight affair and we all hope for a healthy recovery for opponent Magomed Abdusalamov.  Abdusalomov went into a medically induced coma on Sunday due to clotting on the brain.

While he may not fight again given the nature of the injury. Abdusalamov can be proud of the effort he gave fans Saturday night.

The only movement we see this week in a top ten comes in what might just be boxing’s best weight class right now.  Flyweight has been producing action and has remarkable depth.  Giovani Segura won a brutal affair over Tyson Marquez, a serious Fight of the Year contender, and the former lineal Jr. Flyweight king moves into the upper half of the Flyweight top ten.

It’s a hell of a rebound for Segura who lost earlier this year in another fan friendly battle to Edgar Sosa.  He scores his second straight knockout, his prior outing a thrashing on then-undefeated Jonathan Gonzalez.

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