This weekend produced all kinds of great boxing action, with the Erik Morales vs. Marcos Maidana fight producing fireworks, Robert Guerrero vs. Michael Katsidis living up to expectations, and more from there. With the results of those bouts and the rest of the weekend’s boxing action, we’ve gone back and updated our rankings for the lightweight and junior welterweight divisions.
The question people have about Maidana vs. Morales is who it says more about. Is Morales really that strong in his latest comeback, is he a fringe 140 lb contender, or was it somewhat of a fluke against an opponent with serious boxing deficiencies who may also be overrated? The latest 140 lbs rankings will try to figure that out and adjust as necessary for the outcome of that fight.
At lightweight, Robert Guerrero has been waiting to break out on the biggest stage, and his win over Michael Katsidis will finally help him do just that. A dominant performance against a tough opponent, and he looked perhaps better than he ever has before, so how high does he climb in the rankings?
Finally, we also adjusted our middleweight division rankings, following the Marco Antonio Rubio vs. David Lemieux slugfest. Lemieux had been extremely highly touted, nowhere more highly than right here, and the loss was a devastating setback for him, while it earns Rubio another titleshot.
So take a look at all of the updated rankings and enjoy, and keep on coming back to ProBoxing-Fans.com for the latest breaking boxing news, and best coverage on the web.
