    I know the Ring policy ain't perfect, but I'm quick to accept it over the alphabet garbage. A lot of the cries of the GBP bias I dismissed, especially after they gave Pac the JLW belt despite believing he lost to JMM. There'll never be a perfect ranking/title system. I stay riding with Ring belts until their next major misstep for now.
    Pac was still declared the winner of the fight, so they had no choice. I've watched that fight over and over and I still say pac won my the kd. I don't see how you can say jmm won that fight.

    Floyd gets waaaaay too much props all around, not just with the ring. If you put someone else's name in mayweather's resume since 01/03, everyone would be laughing at the guy for being a dodger and not ever defending his belts. I am just amazed that he gets sooo much props for not fighting anyone he's close to even money with in over 6 years!!!!!

    Needless to say, I'm very excited to see shane take that 0....

    The Ring magazine (before the DLH take over)use to be one of the unbiased real

I will never buy another Ring Magazine after they put Mayweather #2 WW in the world and #2 P4P fighter in the world after coming off a 2yr layoff to fight a light weight @ WW and disregarding the Weigh in by coming in over weight and buying his way into the fight. This was where I turned away. It could have been any fighter...not only Mayweather,this was a not the way Ring (the real Ring) would have rated a fighter!

    And you're right. Adamek officially vacated.
    Yep. That would make it no different than the alphabet organizations, but their rankings are much better. Wouldn't be pushing some no name mandatory into a title match, it'd be the best of the best. Why not make the top fighters in a division fight to fill a lineal vacancy? Then again there's no way to do that without threatening to drop guys from ratings, so I know it'll never happen. Just dreaming the dream man.

    I would have liked Adamek to remain at CW at least for a Cunningham rematch. Having the recognized title was a good bargaining chip, so I'm sure Adamek could have gotten a proper deal. The HW move seems to be about nothing but money anyway. I'm gutted at not getting to see that 2nd fight. I don't expect him to do much at HW, unless he gets a shot at Haye. The Klitschkos both destroy him.

Pac already confirmed he's done with JWW, so I'm surprised he hasn't forfeited his Ring belt yet. That leaves Wlad, Pavlik, JMM, and Calderon as recognized world champs. This is across 17 divisions too. **** is crazy.

    Just how hard is it to match the #1 ranked guy with the #2 or #3 ranked guy in every division? Sounds like child's play but it's a gauntlet of promotional, political, egotistical, and financial bull****. My only problem with Ring's title policy is that it isn't enforced. That obviously turns into an oxymoron of sorts, but man I wish it could be done.

    I trust the Ring ratings far more than those of the sanctioning bodies. When I'm discussing who's rated where in a division, I'm usually talking about what I checked on and saw in the Ring ratings. Whoever has their titles is seen as the true champions of a division. I have no problem with Ring's policy.

    Ring usually just re-ranks whoever had the most recent fight regardless of the level of opponent they had beaten sometimes.

    I also think P4P rankings are a total joke, I can't understand why ppl care so much about a fantasy list like that which can't be properly debated because its totally based on imagination.


    Pfp rankings are total garbage.

    I prefer ring ranking to everyone elses. The only way to jump someone is to beat them or someone above them. Fighters are also not penalized for losing close to someone ranked higher than them, which makes sense.

    There has not been a single measurable incident of bias towards golden boy fighters since they bought the ring.
