Your pretty much the only person to have had an issue with it mate. Froch deserves his spot. It was a tight fight and Froch has had dominant wins over upper level fighters since.

Fair enough mate, 1 out of 2 ain't bad and the Lara one was the biggie.

Fair do's.

One last thing and I'll leave you alone, Jose Lopez, number 11 at super-fly, recently lost to hot prospect Leo Santa Cruz, who also dismantled Stephane Jamoye with relative ease. Lopez is beginning to look really past it, and Santa Cruz is rising steadily.

It's hard to place Santa Cruz in a certain division, he's listed at super-fly but all of (or the important ones anyway) have been at bantam. Suppose we'll have to just wait and see.

Yeah, I'd imagine it's a nightmare to try to place them all right.

It's how they're scattered around, and every fighter having a difficult period in their career. The likes of Rigondeaux and Ramos are rising, and both have one solitary very good win each, Lee, Shimoda and Vazquez have some strong performances but are coming off losses, guys like Poonsawat and Cordoba are good enough to be, and in recent years have been, at the top of the division but their careers have stalled now and they're trying tonfind a way back in, and then Montiel and Arce have only recently joined the hierarchy of the division. I think Nishioka is the only one who's guaranteed if his ranking, and the rest could be put in almost any order.

But I think you've got it about right. I myself might've put Rigo above Ramos and maybe Cordoba ahead of Montiel, but it's down to preference really, and it's perfectly acceptable to see things the other way.
