Upcoming battles: (7) Dillian Whyte vs Jermaine Franklin, November 26 … (1) Tyson Fury vs Derek Chisora, Dec. 3
Notes: Papin won on Saturday in Moscow, stopping Damir Beljo in the second round. Good calls by the referee. Papin is 35 years old and has shown what he is, but he can explode, and this is an area where a little divides almost everyone above, I don’t know, 20 or more. This is good, and it can be, if these people are fighting each other.
Upcoming battles: TBA

Upcoming battles: Some shuffling here, pretty amazing week, two new ones in, two out.
Vasilyy Lomachenko stayed at No. 2 after the win over Jamaine Ortiz, but I could see the fight moving Tank Davis ahead of Loma for some people. Lomachenko probably fights Devin Haney in the first three or so of 2023.
Ortiz is also gaining ground, coming in at No. 8; His performance in defeat is impressive, and actually taking on a challenge and doing well in defeat can tell you a lot more than a bunch of easy wins ever will. Yes, he has a lot of size, so most of the weight that Lomachenko will do, because Lomachenko is a light weight. I think Ortiz looks like a real contender at 135, looks like Isaac Cruz is giving Tank a good fight. The PBC turned that into a push for Cruz. We’ll see what Top Rank does with Ortiz, but it’s possible they’ll advance him directly to Shakur Stevenson, which would be the opposite of advancing the PBC by reducing Cruz’s remaining name value. It’s also not exactly the ideal environment for fight fans, but boxing promotion is fun.
Also, in No. 7, William Zepeda, who dominated JoJo Diaz, who was among the top 10. Zepeda did not have the power that Golden Boy hoped to sell him when he beat Hector Tanajara Jr and burned through a couple. more suitable opponents, but he has good wins against Rene Alvarado and Diaz so far, and he did very well against JoJo. Diaz may not be “really,” at 135, but in reality, Diaz is better than Haney than he is Zepeda. It’s not weight where it fails. Zepeda just looked at him and left.
Upcoming battles: (3) Shavkat Rakhimov vs (7) Zelfa Barrett, November 5
Notes: Mauricio Lara fired Jose Sanmartin on October 22, a predictable result. He loves Leigh Wood. Also Kiko Martinez, who beat Jordan Gill on October 29th. But Wood has a fight against Leo Santa Cruz. Eddie Hearn has also mentioned Lara vs Martinez as a possibility, and that might be the best fight Eddie can make for either in the near future. Martinez, it should be noted, did not mention Lara himself. There are battles to be fought, but also complications.
I went back and forth on shuffling. Robeisy Ramirez was the first to knock on that door. I think he has the ability to beat anyone here, and actually, I can put him, and take out Leo Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz holds the WBA belt, but it’s nothing more than political favoritism; he has not fought this weight in almost four years. The WBA has a Santa Cruz vs Wood schedule. I’ll see how that goes. If so some stalling – as we got when everyone agreed to do Santa Cruz vs Vargas and Wood vs Lara, with the winners fighting, but that fell apart – and he didn’t fight with this weight, then he came back, without Consider what the WBA says. about the aluminum foil belt.
Emanuel Navarrete again possible we will reach up to 130 next time, but we will wait for the official announcement.
Upcoming battles: (7) Josh Warrington vs Luis Alberto Lopez, December 10
Upcoming battles: (10) Liam Davies vs Ionut Baluta, November 19 … (7) Takuma Inoue vs Jake Bornea, Dec. 13
Notes: Alexandro Santiago won against Antonio Nieves in Paul vs Silva. It was a seven-round contest, and Nieves’ corner stopped the fight.
Upcoming battles: (1) Naoya Inoue vs (8) Paul Butler, Dec. 13
Notes: Jesse “Bam” Rodriguez is out, following his decision to relinquish his belt and go back down to fly.
Upcoming battles: (7) Francisco Rodriguez Jr vs Junto Nakatani, November 1 … (1) Juan Francisco Estrada vs (3) Chocolatito Gonzalez, Dec. 3
Notes: Some changes here. Taku Kuwahara defeated Giemel Magramo, who was ranked 9th last week, on October 25th. now it is more than one. a finger in the water, it’s a movement.
At number 9 is Seigo Yuri Akui, and Kuwahara comes in at number 10.
Upcoming battles: (1) Sunny Edwards vs. Felix Alvarado, Nov. 11 … (2) Julio Cesar Martinez vs. (4) McWilliams Arroyo, Dec. 3
Upcoming battles: (1) Hiroto Kyuguchi vs (2) Kenshiro Teraji, November 1 … (3) Jonathan Gonzalez vs Shokichi Iwata, November 1.
Upcoming battles: (6) Wilfredo Mendez vs Moises Caro, November 4
Notes: Katie Taylor did what she did, beating Karen Elizabeth Carabajal in London. The plan now is a big fight in Dublin’s Croke Park in 2023 – they want Amanda Serrano to come back, but there are other good fights possible, including Alycia Baumgardner or Chantelle Cameron, who fights this weekend with Jessica McCaskill, which is not gimme.
Upcoming battles: (8) Jessica McCaskill vs (9) Chantelle Cameron, November 5 … (5) Seniesa Estrada vs Jazmin Gala Villarino, November 12.
