On the Cusp: *Ana Maria Torres, Arely Mucino, Carina Moreno, Erica Anabella Farias, *Jackie Nava, Kaliesha West, Marcela Eliana Acuna, Melissa McMorrow, Myriam Lamare, Susi Kentikian

The Future: Amanda Serrano, Christina Hammer, Hyun-Mi Choi, Janeth Perez, Susie Ramadan, Yazmin Rivas, Irma Garcia, Oxandia Castillo

*Nava and Torres would be listed in the top 10 if they weren’t taking a break from boxing due to their pregnancies.

^Just as I was about to drop Wallberg from the ratings she schedules a fight in June. If the fight is cancelled she’ll be dropped.

Fight Schedule:

2013-04-06 Irma Garcia vs Janeth Perez II

2013-04-13 Cecilia Braekhus vs Mia St John

2013-04-27 Mariana Juarez vs Riyo Togo

2013-05-11 Holly Holm vs Mary McGee

2013-06-14 Frida Wallberg vs Diana Prazak

2013-07-25 Susie Ramadan vs TBA

2013-xx-xx Zulina Munoz vs Mariana Juarez

Strawweight

1)      Nkosinathi Joyi

2)      Katsunari Takayama

3)      Mario Rodriguez

4)      Ryo Miyazaki

5)      *Denver Cuello

6)      Pornsawan Porpramook

7)      Wanheng Menayothin

8)      Hekkie Budler

9)      Jesus Silvestre

10)   Xiong Zhao Zhong

Note: Moises Fuentes for the time being will be rated at light flyweight because negotiations for a rematch with Donnie Nietes are underway.

*This will likely be the last month Cuello is rated because he won’t have fought at strawweight in over a year. If his upcoming fight is in the vicinity of the division (unlike last time out) I’ll cut him a break.  Waiting around for Zhao Zhong isn’t really working out for him. He lost his WBC Silver title last year by not defending it.

Waiting in the Wings: Merlito Sabillo, Mateo Handig

Fight Schedule:

2013-04-06 Jesus Silvestre vs Luis Carlos Leon

2013-05-03 Xiong Zhao Zhong vs Carlos Ortega

2013-05-08 Ryo Miyazaki vs Carlos Velarde

2013-06-15 Hekkie Budler vs Nkosinathi Joyi

Junior Flyweight

1)      *Roman Gonzalez

2)      Donnie Nietes

3)      Moises Fuentes

4)      Adrian Hernandez

5)      John Riel Casimero

6)      Kazuto Ioka

7)      %Kompayak Porpramook

8)      Ramon Garcia Hirales

9)      Alberto Rossel

10)   Odilon Zaleta

*Gonzalez was set to move up to flyweight but the WBA upgraded him to super champion and let Kazuto Ioka fight for the vacant regular title. The WBA ordered a meeting between the two to occur, but it appears Ioka’s camp had no interest in the fight. So now I have no idea what Gonzalez is going to do.

%Porpramook is scheduled to challenge for an interim world title at flyweight this month against someone he’s supposed to beat. If he wins, he’ll probably rate at flyweight.

%DFTCA

Waiting in the Wings: Avtandil Khurtsidze, Osumanu Adama, Billy Joe Saunders, Fernando Guerrero, Grzegorz Proksa, Darren Barker, Brian Vera, Andy Lee, Patrick Majewski, Martin Murray

Fight Schedule:

2013-04-27 Peter Quillin vs Fernando Guerrero

2013-04-27 Sergio Gabriel Martinez vs Martin Murray

2013-06-29 Gennady Golovkin vs Matthew Macklin

Super Middleweight

1)      Andre Ward

2)      Carl Froch

3)      Mikkel Kessler

4)      Robert Stieglitz

5)      Thomas Oosthuizen

6)      Sakio Bika

7)      George Groves

8)      Andre Dirrell

9)      Arthur Abraham

10)   Edwin Rodriguez

Note: Adonis Stevenson and Lucian Bute drop out because they’re now competing at light heavyweight. It was easy to rate Stieglitz but I couldn’t bring myself to rate anyone new, so I just brought back Dirrell. He’s still not scheduled to fight anyone serious again but he did beat Abraham and lost a controversial decision to Froch once upon a time. Honestly, it looked pretty obvious to me that he’s still at least better than Abraham at this point.

Waiting in the Wings: James DeGale, Maxim Vlasov, Marco Antonio Periban, Anthony Dirrell

Fight Schedule:

2013-05-25 Carl Froch vs Mikkel Kessler II

2013-06-08 Sakio Bika vs Marco Antonio Periban

Light Heavyweight

1)      Chad Dawson

2)      Bernard Hopkins

3)      Sergey Kovalev

4)      Nathan Cleverly

5)      Isaac Chilemba

6)      Tony Bellew

7)      Tavoris Cloud

8)      *Beibut Shumenov

9)      Gabriel Campillo

10)   %Denis Grachev

*Shumenov is a few months from being unrated altogether, but while he’s still here I just couldn’t stand seeing him rated so high based off robbing Campillo and dominating Uzelkov (after the 1st round). The recent forms of Campillo and Uzelkov effectively work against Shumenov, who has done nothing himself to enhance his credibility.

%If you’re wondering why Grachev is rated instead of Bute, it’s because Bute beat him at a catchweight of only 169 lbs.  Meanwhile Grachev has beaten quality light heavyweights without catchweights. Also, it’s not like Bute dominated Grachev.

Waiting in the Wings: Cornelius White, Ismayl Sillakh, Juergen Braehmer, Blake Caparello, Allan Green, Ovill McKenzie, Dustin Dirks, Zsolt Erdei, Andrzej Fonfara, Jean Pascal, Robin Krasniqi, Karo Murat, Lucian Bute, Doudou Ngumbu

Fight Schedule:

6)      Krzysztof Wlodarczyk

7)      *Lateef Kayode

8)      Mateusz Masternak

9)      Alexander Alekseev

10)   Firat Arslan

*Kayode was expected to make a move to heavyweight, but it seems he’d rather sit out for as long as Tarver is forced to.  Consequently he should be unrated at both weights soon.

Waiting in the Wings: Pawel Kolodziej, Rakhim Chakhkiev, Dmytro Kucher, Guillermo Jones, BJ Flores, Danny Green, Eddie Chambers

2013-04-13 Mateusz Masternak vs Sean Corbin

2013-05-11 Marco Huck vs Ola Afolabi III

2013-05-17 Denis Lebedev vs Guillermo Jones

1)      Wladimir Klitschko

2)      ^Vitali Klitschko

3)      Kubrat Pulev

5)      Alexander Povetkin

7)      Steve Cunningham

8)      *Eddie Chambers

9)      Tyson Fury

10)   Tony Thompson

^Vitali is still unsure whether he will continue boxing or not.

*Chambers was expected to make his Cruiserweight debut but things apparently just didn’t work out. Not it looks like he’ll be unrated in both clashes due to inactivity soon.

Waiting in the Wings: Denis Boytsov, Chris Arreola, Bermane Stiverne, Mariusz Wach, Odlanier Solis, Mike Perez, Vyacheslav Glazkov, Johnathon Banks, Artur Szpilka, Malik Scott, Bryant Jennings, Deontay Wilder, Andrzej Wawrzyk, Amir Mansour, Luis Ortiz, Magomed Abdusalamov, Dereck Chisora, Manuel Charr, Joe Hanks, Lucas Browne, Robert Helenius
