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. 





Pound for Pound

Super Middleweight Osleys Iglesias reminds us of exactly why boxing is the most dangerous combat sport with a frightening KO of Evgeny Shvedenko (#7). Shvedenko was hit in a nerve center on the side of his head, went down, and suffered convulsions in every limb. He exits the rankings with the loss, but that is of minimal importance in the scheme of things. Iglesias is now #4.

Flyweight Julio Cesar Martinez reminds us that boxing’s lack of an  authoritative central oversight makes it that much more dangerous. Martinez is removed from his #3 ranking due to PED issues. He has been suspended by the controlling authority and should examine his conscience –because he isn’t Lance Armstrong riding a bike up hills; he’s in the head trauma business and cheating becomes nothing short of malicious given this context. Dave Apolinario enters at #10.

Jr. Flyweight Daniel Matellon reminds us that in order to hold onto one’s well-earned ranking, one must be at least minimally active. Matellon has not been, and therefore loses his #6 ranking. Miel Fajardo enters at #10.
