Dirrell is by far the most talented fighter in the smw division. Fantastic attributes and he's still so green.

Hard to tell, but I tend to agree you are right if you are talking about natural abilities.

However, he is still green.

I think its hard to rank them right now but if i was forced i suppose

1 - Ward (excellent display against Kessler, Miranda)
2 - Kessler (Andrade, Froch)
3 - Froch (Pascal, Taylor, Dirrell, close Kessler fight)
4 - Dirrell (AA, close froch fight)
5 - Bute
6 - AA (Taylor, Miranda)


That to me is how i rank the major players right now... but tomorrow my list would probably be different and the day after that something else. i think its hard right now to rank these guys. Cant wait for more of these fights to play out.

The Super Six is the only reason this is possible and is the best thing to happen in boxing imo since ive been in the sport even with its controversies.... cant wait for the next fights.

Anyone who ranks Dirrell in the top three should say they do a H2H ranking. Dirrell has 2 notable fights, he lost one and won the other. His win is against a guy who still hasn't done much in the division, apart than bating a shot Taylor.

Dirrell was not even in the top 10 when the tournament began.You guys are buying the Showtime hype...

1. Bute

3. Kessler

Bute can't stay number 1 forever though with lack of quality opposition

1. Ward (best Kessler).
2. Kessler (beat Froch).
3. Froch (beat Dirrell).
4. Dirrell (beat AA).
5. AA (beat Taylor).
6. Bute (not in the SS and has much lower opposition that the SSers).
7. Green (replacement, has to prove he belongs).

This is on achievement alone. Skill is very subjective, and another list could easily be made on skill.
I completely agree with this list Ward's number 1 simply because he beat Kessler. People putting Dirrell at number 2 are crazy. He lost to Froch, a questionable loss yes but still a loss as far as rankings are concerned.
