There’s been a lot of activity in the boxing world as of late and you’ll notice the results of that action in the Rankings section.
Some of the notable changes include several names being dropped from the rankings for not fighting in the last 12 months. Some of those names include Wladimir Klitschko, Peter Quillin, Miguel Cotto, and also Floyd Mayweather Jr.
For his part, Mayweather had actually announced his retirement some time ago though a retirement in boxing is never a sure thing. Manny Pacquiao “retired” last Spring too…he fought again in November and don’t worry, we won’t call it a comeback. (He remains ranked)
Other notable changes include the following:
- Joe Smith Jr. saw his stock rise in the light heavyweight division after his notable KO against the legendary Bernard Hopkins. Smith sits at #4 in a crowded division.
- Julius Indongo made a jump from obscurity to #1 in the super lightweight division with a first round KO of now former champion Eduard Troyanovsky.
Vasyl Lomachenko follows up his debut on the No Sparring P4P List with the #1 spot in the super featherweight division.
