Shouldn't Canelo be THE champion at 154 after he beat the number 2 Trout
:good fair enough. I assumed he was higherCanelo was ranked No.4 when he beat Trout.
Absolutely cluelessI give Takayama a lot of credit; he is a road warrior that has gave four of the best fighters in history at the weight (for whatever that is worth) good, competitive fights. In the last four years he only has two victories, but that includes two solid efforts against Roman Gonzalez and Nkosianthi Joyi, and being on the end of a supposedly very controversial decision in the Philippines to a fringe contender. As for his wins, the one over Lefele is enhanced by the fact he did it on the road, but the opponent wasn't up to much. And I think it is safe to say that Rodriguez was flattered by the victory over Joyi, especially considering he was comfortably outboxed for six rounds before the South African succumbed to the Mexican heat. But still a very good win for Takayama when taking everything into account.
As for Cuello, he has arguably been unbeaten for nearly seven years with his DQ loss to Juan Hernandez in Mexico three years ago being very unlucky. His two most impressive wins include flattening Ganigan Lopez inside two rounds away from home last year (I think this win is equal to Takayama's over Rodriguez), and doing a job on the very experienced contender Muhammad Rachman, becoming the only person to stop the Indonesian in 80 fights. Rachman would also go on to win his second 'world' title after this fight. Other good names on his record include Ivan Meneses, Omar Soto and Rusalee Samor.
It's very close, but I give the edge to Cuello. Boxing politics are the only reason why he hasn't got a title right now, although that is all going to change very soon :yep
The 'In your face King Horse rankings thread'Call it whatever you want :good
Well, the 1 and 2 now are Canelo and Trout, I know Canelo was rated lower before, but I think he should be considered THE man at the weight now, as he has already beaten the number 2. I don't mind re-ranking Mayweather there, but he'd have to be rated number 3 for me (his win over Cotto was far less impressive than Trout's IMO). Still, a fight between the current 1 and 3, given that the number 2 ranked fighter has been beaten by one of them already, is good enough for me.Ok guy. Should Mayweather v Alvarez be for the Light Middleweight World Championship?
This would mean re-ranking Mayweather at 154lbs and his title would become vacant at 147lbs. Bradley v Marquez will become a vacant title fight?
:rofl very richMaybe you should change them.
