BoxingScene Championships Stats, Records: August 2019 Update

by Cliff Rold

Cruiserweight - Arsen Goulamirian was elevated to full WBA titlist when Denis Lebdev announced his retirement in July.

Light Heavyweight - Jean Pascal used three knockdowns to stun undefeated Marcus Browne with a cut-shortened eight round decision win a WBA interim title. 

Middleweight - Due to the WBC’s franchise tab, Jermall Charlo is now the full WBC titlist at 160 lbs. Ryoto Murata regained the WBA’s sub-title, avenging his loss to Rob Brant with an explosive second round stoppage. The IBF title is now vacant and expected to be filled by a clash between Gennady Golovkin and Sergey Derevyanchenko.

Welterweight - In a performance reminiscent of Roberto Duran-Iran Barkley, Manny Pacquiao scored a first round knockdown of Keith Thurman en route to a points win for the WBA welterweight belt.

Jr. Welterweight - There were some who criticized Jose Ramirez for not entering the WBSS at 140 lbs. Now, the tournament is devolved into lawsuits and Ramirez is the lone unified titlist in class after a rousing stoppage of Maurice Hooker.

Strawweight - The IBF belt is vacant after DeeJay Kriel opted to move up in weight.

Man I hate keeping track of all the titles and weight classes. Following boxing is practically a full time job. Such a crazy sport.
