This one is particularly weird with Wilder ranked below him despite the 2 KOs.
Those KOs are almost ancient history at this point...

Re: Ratings - please read before commenting

I think the recent change was a big improvement. The only issue I see remaining is some guys who have not had a decent performance in a VERY long time are pretty highly ranked, sometimes over top guys in the division: Yes, I've been complaining about this for a while. During Covid it was expanded t...

Re: Jake Paul vs Mike Tyson exhibition - Netflix - 20th July 2024 (Texas)

Rumored that this might actually be a sanctioned pro bout.

It is Texas, so it would not surprise me.

Re: BoxRec ghosted a major fight - Why ?

It seems to be a tradition here... every so often, some type of squirrelly decision causes a fight to be ignored, or marked as non-sanctioned... or a boxer to be hidden from the rankings... certain words on the forum to be auto-replaced, etc.. etc.. The Bridgerweight thing seems baffling... I mean, ...

Re: BoxRec ghosted a major fight - Why ?

I'm still trying to figure out why fighters competing at "Bridgerweight" are not ranked... They would be OK to stick at Heavy.. No?

A lot of things COULD happen... does that justify his ranking as the number 1 Cruiser right now? Read the last sentence of my post. Ramirez is the best boxer at CW? What sound argument can be made to make that claim? He defeated a former 175 champion making his CW debut after a year layoff? The &qu...

Re: Ratings - please read before commenting

The Ramirez thing is pretty simple to explain and understand.. Martin can confirm but... I suspect LHW on average, is a much stronger division than CW. Sanchez's points were converted from LHW to CW.... which makes him the top CW as his remaining points (+ win over Smith if that matters) were more ...

Re: Ratings - please read before commenting

IBO, the "other" software-based ranking site... has it the same, Eubank #1, Smith #2

BUT.. they do not rank major belt holders... they stick them in a tier above, which is strange. In this case, that includes Lara, one of the Charlos and the Kazakh.

Re: Ratings - please read before commenting

Yea that is quite harsh and I would think it makes the ratings very volatile. I think it is a bit pretentious to enforce harsh penalties on things like this..... If it were one of the major sanctioning bodies sure... but you can't expect the boxing community to matchmake based on the inactivity par...

Never was a fan of "Fat Dan", but he was a consistent, although biased, arrogant, and sometimes dishonest mainstay in the boxing world. I wonder how much he was making at ESPN? There were times he'd contradict himself... on one day he'd write-up a subjective report of a fight, and then lat...

Hmm. I guess boxrec ratings are updating instantly now. It used to be that they only recalculated at the end of each day.
