December 2012 – Welterweight Update   Leave a comment

Ratings Change: #6 Robert Guerrero advances to #3 after mugging Andre Berto. Berto drops from #4 to #7.

1) Timothy Bradley
2) Manny Pacquiao
3) Robert Guerrero
4) Kell Brook
5) Josesito Lopez
6) Devon Alexander
7) Andre Berto
8) Carson Jones
9) Jan Zaveck
10) Paul Malignaggi

Note 1: Mayweather is rated at junior middleweight. He hasn’t fought at welterweight since 2011-09-17.

Note 2: Ortiz is unrated because it is uncertain how long it will take for him to return, if he ever will.

Note 3: For the record I scored the Pacquiao-Bradley for Pacquiao, barely. Why not rate Pacquiao above Bradley then? I’ll answer that as soon as you ask me about all the other fights I score differently than the judges yet rate the official winner higher. Consistency doesn’t have the caveat of convenience.

Waiting in the Wings: Chris van Heerden, Selcuk Aydin, Juan Manuel Marquez, Jessie Vargas, Luis Carlos Abregu, Shawn Porter, Frankie Gavin, Diego Gabriel Chaves, Leonard Bundu

Fight Schedule:
2012-12-07 Jessie Vargas vs Vito Gasparyan
