Bummer they put dyke ghetto filth Clarence at #1.

I agree. I've seen her fight maybe 3 times and in the interviews post fight she always comes off as an idiot. You know, the female version of Adrian Broner.

Jesus, I just had a thought. She and Broner get together and have a kid who turns out to be the biggest egotistical simp to ever walk the face of the Earth.

I'm not the biggest of shields but at this point can't really dispute her being #1.
Undefeated, unified super middleweight, undisputed middleweight and unified light middle champ. For what it's worth 2 amateur olympic golds as well

Braekhus had the best claim to the throne but her recent loss, controversial or not is on the books and at least temporarily knocks her off the top spot.
Had she not lost without having looked at her record in to much depth I'd have her 1.
Braekhus doesn't have the multiple division credentials that generally bumps up a P4P status like Shields but 26 consecutive successful defences, all of them at least 2 belt unification fights and 11 of them all 4 major belt fights with even the second tier IBO thrown in there for 9 defences.... that is unreal... that type of reign is unheard of in boxing as a whole. Mens or womens. Cleaning a division and picking up all the belts should be rated pretty highly.

Unfortunately though that upset loss sets her back and subsequently boosted McCaskill into 4th where she probably doesn't really belong.

Broner is an idiot but he's as innocent as a newborn compared to her and can actually be entertaining at times. It's mostly lighthearted. Clarence on the other hand is a genuine subhuman piece of filth.

In Olympic boxing judges these days also look at technical/tactical superiority next to clean punches as a scoring criterion.
For the sake of quality of boxing you really don't want to reward the style Persoon has unless the opponents is even worse (at which point it becomes a pick your poison problem).
Landing the cleaner punches whilst being technically/tactically sound should always trump an over-aggressive crude swinging Neanderthal. Even if said Neanderthal has some "success" by smothering the technically superior boxer.

Wow, Taylor is number 2? Hardly anyone seemed to have scored it for her over Peersoon. That list in itself is fucking dire. Women's boxing is a fucking joke, and it's only held up because they sneak that shit into men's matches.

Persoon couldn't do that for 3 minute rounds. The quality of fighting is absolute dogshit. I'm not being sexist, it's that pub brawlers are getting much further because the quality of female boxer is actually quite low.

The 2-minute rounds are a cop-out, imo. I'd rather a lower round count for title fights, with 3 minute rounds. Say 10 x 3. Rather than this 2 bullshit.
