The Ring had truly printed a brand new set of rankings in early February. The massive mover there was Beterbiev, who leapfrogged Bivol. These two will face off in June.

Teofimo Lopez was tenth on that record, however a poor efficiency in opposition to Jamaine Ortiz has resulted in The Ring updating their rankings rapidly. Rodriguez deservedly takes his place.

“Bam” demolished reigning IBF flyweight champion Sunny Edwards in December and has cleaned up everybody that has are available in his path. In the meantime, “Bud” Crawford stays No. 1. That does not seem like altering anytime quickly.
