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.

Super Middleweight John Ryder moves up from #6 to #4 with a TKO win over Zach Parker in the fifth round. Parker pulled-out because of an injury to his right hand he thinks occurred at the beginning of the fourth round when he threw an uppercut. Ryder is now aiming for division king Canelo. 

The #2 contender at Jr. Welterweight Regis Prograis came roaring back into action with a big win over #3 contender Jose Zepeda. Zepeda was cut in the 2nd and went down in the eleventh, prompting the ref to wave off the fight. Prograis is now the #1 contender. Zepeda drops to #5.

We have two trilogies to look forward to on Saturday: Two-time heavyweight king Tyson Fury returns to the ring after a four-month retirement on Saturday, with a third fight against Derek Chisora. Reigning jr. bantamweight king Juan Francisco Estrada takes on #1-contender and nemesis Roman Gonzalez in a rubber match which should be fascinating.  

The Transnational Boxing Rankings Board sends condolences to the family of former strawweight and jr. flyweight contender Moises Fuentes, who died on November 24, at age 37. Fuentes was in our inaugural rankings back in October 2012. Boxing gave him a share of glory that few fighters in history would otherwise have achieved, but it demands so much. We thank him as we all should all fighters for what they inspire as they strive in that bloody ring.
