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

Australia’s own George Kambosos Jr. has dethroned Teofimo Lopez to become boxing’s only legitimate Lightweight Champion of the World. Lopez came out firing as promised, but got countered with an overhand right and went down in the first round—the very round he hoped to conclude matters. Kambosos fought aggressively but not without strategy and was able to take a completely justified decision. Not one board member found the decision an unfair one.

Kambosos is the surprise king of a loaded division. 

Lopez drops to #1, just over Lomachenko at #2. Lopez also loses his place on the P4P List. Entering at #10 is Japan’s Kazuto Ioka, who was #1 at strawweight at our inception in 2012, #2 at jr. flyweight in 2014, and #1 at flyweight in 2017. He is now ranked #3 in his fourth division and faces #4 ranked Jerwin Ancajas in a fight that could very well see him ranked #1 in his third division.

Cruiserweight Efetobor Apochi is bumped out with the entry of Badou Jack, now ranked in his third division. Jack exits his #6 ranking at Light Heavyweight and makes way for the undefeated former contender Lyndon Arthur, at #10.

Super Middleweight Pavel Silyagin makes his debut at #8 after defeating former contender Isaac Chilemba. Anthony Dirrell is bumped out.

Jeison Rosario, #6 at Jr. Middleweight, made good on an announcement to move to middleweight and so exits his ranking. Liam Smith returns in at #10.

Jr. Lightweight Kenichi Ogawa defeated former contender Azinga Fuzile via unanimous decision and enters in at #6 over the recently stopped Jamel Herring. Rene Alvarado is bumped out.

Boxing was treated to another excellent fight between undefeated fighters last week when the #4-ranked Jr. Featherweight Stephen Fulton took a majority decision over #3-ranked Brandon Figueroa. Figueroa didn’t like the decision but it was no robbery, not to anyone we know at least. Fulton now has the scalps of two contenders (his last fight was a win over then-sixth ranked Angelo Leo, who was also undefeated). The board votes to move him to #1.
