The ‘top 10’ of the best boxers after the rise of the new American star

EIn general, the great reference or the highest authority when it comes to the pound-for-pound classification of boxing is The Ring magazine. The same review is carried out weekly, and this Tuesday we learned that The boxer who occupied ninth position has risen to fifth. He only has other more established champions ahead of him, but a young man keeps crashing 24 years old has been placed so high.

He is an American of Mexican descent Jesse ‘Bam’ Rodriguezwho last Saturday became the first boxer to knock out Juan Francisco ‘El Gallo’ Estrada. The rise in the ‘P4P’ ranking of ‘Bam’ does not really come as a surprise, since the southpaw from San Antonio snatched the WBC super flyweight champion title to a true legend and he also did it in a dominant and spectacular way. The great opposition of the ‘Rooster’ also helped magnify the victory of the new star.

Previously Jesse Rodríguez had just unified two flyweight titles, so he is champion in two divisions at the same time. Little more can be said about a boxer in progress with an increasingly attractive and effective style in all fields. Let’s hope that before the end of 2025 he faces the Japanese Junto Nakatanianother of the rising fighters, who is now bantamweight champion.

The first position in the ranking remains deservedly for Oleksandr Usyk and positions two to four do not change either. On August 3, Terence Crawford fights with Israil Madrimov, a fight that is still interesting, but we do not believe that it can elevate ‘Bud’ to the top of the ranking. It’s a shame that the expected contest between Beterbiev and Bivol, because a clear ‘top 3’ could have come from here. Finally the fight will be on October 12.
