    Although I will also add Vetyeka to my list, I don't think he's number 1.

    They have a board of members who follow the sport closer than I. If they vote certain rankings I see no strong reason to overrule them.

    That being said, I would class Linares and Lomachenko as number 1 personally, but their rankings are consistent, fair and transparent. Their championship policy is perfect.

    How can you justify Crolla not being top 10 at Lightweight?

    Ask them. See what they say.

    They had him top 10 until Bey, Barthelemy and Gamboa returned to action at LW so that might have something to do with it.

    Why is Fedor Chudinov under Lucian Bute? I don't understand that one. Bute's most recent fight was a loss against DeGale and a win against a complete nobody.

    If you can put forward and arguement for why Chudinov should be ahead based on his achievments.

    It's more about Bute than Chudinov. Bute hasn't had a win over anyone even remotely relevant in a long, long time. I think his last win was Gravech in 2012 after his Froch loss. His only win since he came back is Di Luisa who is a nobody. Di Luisa and Buglioni is probably an even money fight.

    If we're going H2H, I say it's a 50-50 fight. H2H, they aren't far off from each other, so the only thing that separates the two is recent resume.

    Sturm is a better win than Grachev, and Chudinov hasn't lost twice in his last 4 fights, there's no reason for Bute to be higher

    I don't even think Bute should be in the top 10 at all to be honest. I think the Ring has it right with not ranking him.

    I'm not in the mood to analyze right now, but I think I can deal with Bute being in the bottom 10. Still not too crazy about ranking him in the top 10, but I guess he does have a H2H basis at SMW that can't be denied.

    10. Jorge Sebastian Heiland
    11. Chris Eubank
    12. Avtandil Khurtdize

    I don't think Heiland is even top 10...for him to be ranked above Eubank Jr and Khurtdize is terrible imo.

    First, Eubank Jr's win over Chudinov and close fight with Saunders is already a better resume than Heiland's.

    Secondly if this is fanmade, are we going by fan scorecards? Because Khurtsidze was robbed against N'Dam, he clearly won that fight but it was in France and N'Dam got the home town decision. He also has a very good win over previously undefeated top prospect Antoine Douglas in March of this year. In my eyes Khurtsidze has been 26-0 with 16KO's since 2007. His last loss was 2005, so he's been undefeated for like 11 years now. To add to his run, he's a mere 5'4" Middleweight. I think he should be higher, and should Eubank Jr.

    It will be interesting to see next month where they've put Usyk.

    1, 2, or 3?

    I imagine Lebedev will stay at #1 due to the depth of his resume, but who gets the #2 spot? (not that it really matters.)
