Is Ali Funeka the Best Lightweight Boxer in the World Right Now?
After the Funeka vs. Guzman fight this weekend, ProBoxing-Fans.com has revisited our lightweight division rankings to see who belongs at the top of the list. Despite the fight being ruled a draw, Funeka clearly was the victor, and deserves to be treated as such. Does his performance warrant him being moved all the way to the top spot in the division however? It’s also important to note that Guzman’s performance should raise his standing, despite what should have been a loss. His career seemed in shambles but now it looks like he can return into form and make a run at another title shot.
