OUR MISSION

The Transnational Boxing Rankings Board was formed in October 2012 as a volunteer initiative to provide boxing with authoritative top-ten rankings, identify the singular world champion of every division by strict reasoning and common sense, and to insist on the sport’s reform. Board membership includes fifty respected boxing journalists and record keepers from around the world who are uncompromised by so-called sanctioning bodies and promoters.

LATEST UPDATE

26 September 2022

Juggernaut Joe Joyce (#5) stops Joseph Parker (#4) with a left hook after a performance that had many observers wondering if Joyce’s jaw bone was surgically replaced with a steel beam. A clear majority voted that Joyce should advance from #5 to #1 at Heavyweight as a result of his big win over a never-before-stopped contender. Three of the four at the top have losing records over the past two years, after all. There was some strong dissent among members who believe that he would be better suited for #3 or #4 at this point; those losses at the top, they argued, were to top-level guys. 

As it is, the Juggernaut has arrived. He is now a frightening prospect for every heavyweight this side of former champ Tyson Fury. Usyk’s crown is wobbling. 

Jr. Lightweight Shakur Stevenson failed to make weight and has announced a move to lightweight. As per best practice, we are attaching a grace period before declaring that divisional championship open. Robson Conceicao, however, drops from #8 to #9 after a clear loss.

Bantamweight Kai Chiba makes his debut in the Transnational Boxing Rankings with a big stoppage win in the 12th round over the #10 contender Keita Kurihara. Chiba took the shortest path into the top ten and is now ranked #10.
