I respect all input from my fan base and your opinions are welcome. I try to answer everyone in a positive manner, with respect, as you have respected my views and opinions.

I have received a few comments and questions that have asked, “why boxing, boxing is dead”.  I must acknowledge that boxing has always been in the eye of controversy due to bad fights, bad decisions, too many champions and corrupt promoters since the days of John L. Sullivan in the late 1800’s.  I will say that it has had its up’s and down’s, but has always survived with fan numbers fluctuating. Today I see the swing in an upward direction as indicated, most recently, by large gates; Canelo Alvarez vs. Austin Trout selling over 33,000 tickets, and with a large viewing on Showtime.  Sergio Martinez vs. Martin Murray attracted over 49,000 fans for their fight, plus a large viewing on HBO; boxing is far from dead.

A few people have asked me about ratings.  In the past I would have a monthly post for every weight class.  I decided to drop that one feature a few years ago because of the many governing bodies, trying to honor the different champions in each of the sanctioning organizations. (i.e.) WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO.

Here’s my ranking (in order) of the top twenty “pound for pound” boxers:
