    The idea here is that these are your rankings gents. The above link will tell you a little more about the TBRB, but briefly it's been felt that with The Ring Magazine rankings becoming questionable and with the racketeers still running the alphabet soup, the internet could do better. This is the result and it's been adopted by several websites as offical rankings, including ESB.

    They are currently updated monthly on the homepage,
    This content is protected
    , on ESB's frontpage and on the various other websites who we support/who support us.

    But the bottom line is the fans. That's you lot. So speak up. What you like, what you don't, we're interested in what you and the rest of boxing's put upon fanbase has to say.

    Don't see how one can rank the inactive Dirrell and not rank Angulo. :huh

    Inactivity and how it should impact a boxer is a sticky one at the moment; check out Mayweather's dual ranking for another thorny issue, he hasn't fought in some time as a welterweight. It's in hand. The good news is that Angulo boxes this weekend and becomes subject to next month's ranking dicussion.

    Note, though, that Dirrell has fought within a year - just - and Angulo has not.

    At 122...

    Why would Mijares be ranked at the weight when his recent outings have been conducted at featherweight. And where is Poonsawat in that division's top 10..?

    Fighters are removed from divisional rankings upon indicating publicly that they won't be returning to that division (which Mijares hasn't done) or until they fall foul of the inactivity rules (taken on a case by case basis). Because Mijares fought there within the year he hasn't even been flagged yet.

    But that's the kind of thing a forum like this can help us keep right on. Everyone involved is a volunteer and most of these guys are working stiff, so any and all support is welcome.


    Poonsawat isn't ranked due mainly to his horrible level of comp since Lee took his title. I'd invite you to make a case, but he'll obviously be definied by what happens this weekend.

    Currently monthly; it may go weekly depending.

    Have you awarded your championship belts to the recognized champions yet, and was there an award ceremony?

    No belts Joe. As far as i'm aware the fighters that become champion don't even get any kind of message telling them :lol: At first I thought that underwhelming, but now I kind of like it. These rankings aren't about the fighters, they're about the fans.

    When you look at Ring rankings what do you think? Especially when there's a striking new entry or new #2? You think, "is this a Golden Boy fighter?" if you're anything like me. Rightly or wrongly, fair or unfair. This month they seem to have reallly lost it with that p4p list.

    Even a casual ESB member knows that the Alphabet crew are a joke. So where does a fan go on the internet if they can't figure out who is #2, or #5 or #1 or whatever in each division? We want them to come to our site, or one of the sites that support our rankings.

    This is a good initiative, especially now that The Ring is being corrupted by Golden Boy.

    BTW. How come in some of the divisions you have a Champion listed, and then the next 10, and in others, just the Top 10? :huh

    13 months ago. Dude was all but eliminated by Kirkland anyway.

    Champions are crowned only where a defined lineage could be identified. Divisions where this was not the case can only see a champion crowned when the #1 meets the #2.

    So for example, if Trout and Mayweather met at 154lbs., a new lineage is established. If Mayweather then retires, the #1 and #2 need to meet to re-establish.
