But yes, I'd have it;

Fury
Chisora

I know he destroys him, but it hasn't happened (yet) to I'm not going to credit him with the win.

I also know that Cleverly beats Hopkins, Dawson and Cloud but I'm not ranking him at #1 LHW.

Fury has smashed him up in sparring & would kick his ass if they ever fought

Robert "The Techno Viking" Helenius is just a big stiff with a good chin & decent power

Shane shouldn't be listed at Welterweight, his last victory was over 3 years ago and his next fight against Canelo is at 154.

Chisora would be ahead of Helenius but he is not ranked as he doesn't hold a boxing license.

Why rank him at 154 though where he's had 1 fight in the last 5 years or whatever? If he beats Alvarez or does well enough to be ranked it can happen then.

Yeah he got beat by the best, but they were convincing losses all the same, in the Manny he fight he looked absolutely done. I'd love him to roll back the clock v Canelo but I actually fear for him in that fight.

I wouldn't rank him at either weight.

if he does well vs Canelo he will get ranked at 154. If he loses big he will be dropped all together.

As Rios has failed to make the weight twice in a row & was soundly beaten by Abril I think he should be dropped from the ratings altogether.

If he starts at 140 in his next fight then he might deserve a ranking there.

3rd place might be a little too high for Abril
