BoxingScene Ratings Update: Broner, Fletcher, Solis

by Cliff Rold

While changes have been in short supply so far in 2014, the main events are coming together for a hot spring and the divisional ratings are due for an update.  Among changes to be found:

Middleweight: Darren Barker exits due to his retirement.  Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam returns to the top ten.  Jarrod Fletcher enters the top ten off a victory over previously rated Max Bursak.

Jr. Middleweight: Previous number ten Cornelius Bundrage won his last bout but so did previously unrated Jermell Charlo, and the latter looked very good outpointing Gabe Rosado.  Charlo cracks the top ten.

Lightweight: Adrien Broner exits the ratings after a year of Lightweight inactivity and being stripped of his 135 lb. belt in January.

Jr. Lightweight: Due to the controversial ending, and preceding action in the bout, both Argenis Mendez and Rances Barthelemy make moves.  It looked like Barthelemy was on his way to a win but one never knows in boxing.  A rematch should clear the matter up.

Jr. Bantamweight: Former titlist Liborio Solis is off to Bantamweight.  Former Flyweight titlist Denkaosan Kaovitchit has won a dozen in a row and will soon fight for a vacant title.  He enters the top ten.

Jr. Flyweight: Juan Palacios exits after well over a year of inactivity.  Rey Loreto, with back-to-back wins over former titlists, enters the top ten.

Strawweight: Titlist Ryo Miyazaki lost his belt on the scales and in the ring and exits the top ten.  Conqueror Fahlan Sakkreerin enters the top ten though an eye will be kept to see where he genuinely continues as he’s made noise about fighting on at 105.  Former titlist Nkosinathi Joyi is also now firmly entrenched at 108. He exits.  Osvaldo Novoa enters off a knockout of Xiong Zhao Zhong.

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