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

A Super Middleweight clash of contenders saw #1-ranked David Benavidez stop #9-ranked Demetrius Andrade in six rounds. Andrade, who has been criticized on the forum (by this fellow New Englander) for fighting not much more than once a year during his prime, could not handle his first real test. He drops to #10 and was lucky he wasn’t voted out of the rankings altogether – the vote was close. As for Benavidez, he  looks like Beowulf under King Canelo,

Two contenders bow out of the rankings due to inactivity: Michael Zerafa (#7, Middleweight) makes way for Vincenzo Gualtieri and Rey Vargas (#3, Featherweight) exits and Josh Warrington returns to #10. 

At Jr. Welterweight, Subriel Matias looked world class in stopping undefeated Shohjahon Ergashev. He moves up from #6 to #2. At Jr. Lightweight, Lamont Roach return to the rankings after taking a decision over #6-ranked Hector Garcia. Garcia falls to #9. Liam Wilson is bumped out.
