//THE 17 PREMIERS.
Heavyweight. The new era in heavyweight boxing has become a mess. Wladimir Klitschko is back at number at number 1, he has been retained to the ratings as it was not his fault he was inactive.
Cruiserweight. Oleksandr Usyk is the new premier but its very close Lebedev has a strong shout and should Huck gain a rematch and beat Glowacki he could also regain the top spot.
Light-heavyweight. Adonis Stevenson remains marginally ahead of Sergey Kovalev who mid-month took over the top place, Kovalev's loss to Ward has all three fighters virtually equal.
Super-middleweight. Gilberto Sanchez takes over from Arthur Abraham, but it is a close call with many experts citing other number #1s
Middleweight. Gennady Golovkin is our king in this division. There is a clear gap between GGG and anyone else, he has virtually cleaned the division out.
Junior-middleweight. Saul Alvarez may be lineal middleweight champion we maintain he is a junior-middleweight 155 demands don't cut it. The Lineal situation at middleweight is a mess. Cotto vacated it when he defended inside the Junior-middleweight weight limit. Canelo fights for the WBO title next up. There are no real rules.
Welterweight. With Floyd Mayweather's retirement it is Manny Pacquiao who is now deemed best. Second placed Tim Bradley sports two losses to the Pacman who many think will not fight again.
Junior-welterweight. Terrence Crawford has claimed the top spot cementing his top position by widely outpointing Victor Postol the divisions #2.
Lightweight. Mike Garcia destriyed Dejan Zlaticanin but it was not enough to claim the top spot. Jorge Linares is now declared the lightweight king, both need to fight each other to end any dispute.
Super-featherweight. Vasyl Lomanchenko is the premier at 130 with a comprehensive victory over Nicholas Walters. Former champ Uchiyama was knocked out by Jezreel Corrales.
Featherweight. Leo Santa Cruz reversed the previous decision with Carl Frampton so is the new king. A rubber match is on the cardswinner meets Lee Selby.
Super-bantamweight. Guillermo Rigondeaux holds the top spot but with only 4 fights in three years against fairly low grade opposition coupled with the fact he is 35 years old it is quite hard to understand how is earning money.
Bantamweight. Shinsuke Yamanaka is the clear king at Bantamweight.
Super-flyweight. Roman Gonzalez at 46-0 has been champion in four weight classes, a true champion. Juan Estrada has moved up also.
Flyweight. Donnie Nietes claims the flyweight premiership but the division is now open again.
Junior-flyweight. Ganigan Lopez takes over as the premier in the light-flyweights with Donnie Nietes moving up.
Minimumweight. Knockout CP Freshmart takes over from Byron Rojas who could not hold on to his title in his first defence.
