Updates, 29 July 2014: ***Heavyweight Tony Thompson is bumped out of the rankings to make room for Bryant Jennings. In defeating “Irish” Mike Perez, Jennings proved that superior conditioning can sometimes be enough to defeat superior skill. He still has much to prove in a division with two giants ahead of him, one of whom he may face soon (Deontay Wilder).
Australian Daniel Geale drops one spot in the Middleweight rankings after the consensus-pick premiere fighter in the division and number-one contender Gennady Golovkin stops him inside of three rounds. Golovkin deserves a shot at Cotto’s crown; the only real question about that prospective match would be whether Freddie Roach can devise a winning strategy for an outgunned Cotto.
At Junior Featherweight, Fernando Montiel, now campaigning at Featherweight, is removed from the #6 spot. South African Thabo Sonjica enters at #10.***
