What Criteria Does Boxing Base Use to Determine Boxer Rankings?

Good question. Since boxing matches don’t take place within a league format, how can one determine who the world’s greatest fighters are? No one can say for sure, so like many other publications, the Boxing Base team regularly discusses fighter performance to best place each combatant in our rankings. We also consult with a number of respected analysts outside of Boxing Base.

First and foremost, a fighter’s ranking is based on their achievements in the ring. So, how many fights they win, their performance, and the level of opposition faced. Boxers can be dropped from their respective division’s top 10 spot if they test positive for a banned substance, retire, or do not schedule a bout in said weight class within 18 months. There are other criteria in place, but the above is generally what we go by. The Boxing Base team meet up every one-to-two weeks to compile rankings.

If you still have questions regarding our Boxer Rankings, contact us via our Contact Page.

I’m Confused About Boxing’s World Title System and Belt Meaning – Who is the Real Champion?

You won’t be the first or last person to ask that question – perhaps ever. Championship status is confusing! Which is why we’ve written up an World Boxing Champion Status Explained page to clear it up once and for all.

Why Doesn’t Boxing Base Consider All the Sanctioning Bodies’ Title Belts in Your Rankings?

The short answer is to simplify boxing’s ‘alphabet soup’ of titles in an effort to make Boxing Base’s statistics, Rankings, News, etc, easier for our visitors to digest. It is not our intention to discredit any fighter’s achievements. (A more detailed explanation can be found on our Boxer Rankings Title Policy Page)
