the Ratings have always been a point of contention, in the past the scoring systems always had Huge Gaps between Fighters, including at the Top, now (generally speaking), most fighters are inaccurately low, even among Top Fighters.
there has always been far, far too many fighters really unaccounted for. I mean there are thousands of fighters on the data base and literally hundreds of them are great and excellent Top Noted fighters. So surely there is a better way of accounting for ALL these Fighters, in that 'their' Careers, long or short, prolific or just a few fights, but irrespective they are properly credited and Boxing History is better Served because of it.
Can a System, like the one below, not give a more realistic & balanced Scoring & Ranking to ALL Fighters, with ALL of their Fights Credited in Merit, Status and Title?

Wins - 2 Points
Draws - 1 point

Alphabet Title Wins - 50 points
Lineal Eliminators Loses - 75 points
Lineal Title Eliminators WINS - 100 points

Lineal World Title WINS - 200 points
10 points for over 50 Fights,
15 points for over 75 Fights
20 points for over 100 Fights,
25 points for over 125 Fights
30 points for over 150 Fights
35 points for over 175 Fights
40 points for over 200 Fights
50 points for MORE 225 Fights - Stops here (if you wish), because Most of the FIGHTS are ALL accounted for - Wins, Draw Loss Scoring & Title Related FIGHTS.
it would bring all Fighters into mix, so to speak,
and the ridiculously wide gaps would only be seen by fighters who had fairly inactive, unproductive and/or short careers, where as the Thousand of 'worthy' Fighters would be recognised & complimented more realistically.
Yours in Boxing.
