BoxingScene Championship Stats, Records Update: November 2019

Cruiserweight: The true throne of the division empties after Oleksandr Usyk’s move to heavyweight. His alphabet belts had already begun to move around.

Light Heavyweight: Boxing has a new light heavyweight king. Artur Beterviev assumes the lineal mantle with his knockout of Oleksandr Gvozdyk. Saul Alvarez won his third major divisional crown with a knockout of Sergey Kovalev.

Middleweight: Gennady Golovkin is back in belted circles, regaining the IBF title with a gritty decision over Sergey Dereveyanchenko.

Welterweight: Errol Spence is now belted twice over after winning a gem against Shawn Porter. He is wished a speedy recovery from his auto accident shortly after the fight.

Jr. Welterweight: In a year where we’ve seen several unification clashes, two memorable events at Jr. welterweight have whittled the field to two top dogs. Josh Taylor won a tough decision over Regis Prograis to win the WBSS and said he’s ready for fellow unified titlist Jose Ramirez. 2020 is as good a time as any.

Lightweight: The WBC’s silly ‘franchise’ tag elevated Devin Haney to their official titlist.

Featherweight: Oscar Valdez vacated the WBO strap to move to Jr. lightweight and 2016 US Olympic Silver Medalist Shakur Stevenson claimed it in a lopsided decision over Joet Gonzalez.

Bantamweight: Another unified titlist arrives via the WBSS. Naoya Inoue won a bloody front-runner for Fight of the Year, overcoming a fractured orbital bone early to defeat a Noinito Donaire who turned back the clock. Will Inoue stick around to unify the whole division?

Flyweight: Charlie Edwards vacated his WBC belt and will test the waters at 115 lbs.

Strawweight: Two new titlists reign at 105 lbs. Wilfredo Mendez bested Vic Sauldar for the WBO strap in August and Pedro Taduran won the vacant IBF title in September.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;20183457]The WBA "super" champion is the real WBA champion in a weight class. The WBA "regular" champion is just secondary bullcrap. That's why I don't give any credit to Golovkin for supposedly having tied the record of 20 consecutive title…
