February 2013 – Middleweight Update   Leave a comment

Ratings Change: Sam Soliman enters at #5 after upsetting Felix Sturm (previously #4). Peter Quillin replaces Sturm simply on the basis that I can’t imagine Soliman beating Quillin. Sturm drops to #6 and pushes down everyone previously rated 6-9, forcing Martin Murray out. But fear not Murray fans, he should be back as soon as I drop Dmitry Pirog for inactivity. Pirog is apparently semi-retired, not interested in fighting anymore unless it’s for a lot of $$$.

1) Sergio Gabriel Martinez
2) Daniel Geale
3) Gennady Golovkin
4) Peter Quillin
5) Sam Soliman
6) Felix Sturm
7) Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam
8) Julio Cesar Chavez Jr
9) Dmitry Pirog
10) Matthew Macklin
