Via Sean Jones: Ring Magazine released their new updated lightweight rankings on Wednesday, and unsurprisingly they had undisputed champ Devin Haney at the top of the weight division after a big win over the champ. unify George Kamboso Jr.
Having Ryan Garcia on the list at number 5 is a questionable move for Ring Magazine employees because he is such a social media boxer more like Jake Paul than a serious boxer.
Promoted golden boy Ryan Garcia is well known on social media for his posse, but he doesn’t separate himself from YouTuber boxers like Logan Paul and his brother Jake.
Ryan has never beaten anyone good, and he doesn’t deserve to be in the Ring Magazine top 10 until he proves himself against the top contenders.
Ring Magazine’s rankings are a pure mess from top to bottom, and that’s not something Sean Jones would sum up.
The surprise in the updated Ring Magazine rankings is that Teofimo Lopez is ranked at #2, although he reveals that he is rising to 140 and not going back to 135.
Reality, Teofimo should not be included in Ring Magainze’s updated lightweight rankings because he has repeatedly commented that he is planning to move in lightweight. Furthermore, he was scheduled to fight the journeyman Pedro Campa on August 13 at 140.
Another big surprise in the Ring Magazine rankings was Kambosos Jr. (20-1, 10 KOs) were placed in 1st place, ahead of the much more talented Vasyl Lomachenko, who they had in 3rd place.
As poor as Kambosos against Haney last weekend, you could argue a better position for the Australian would be outside the top 10. He is NOT a top 10 boxer.
There’s very little chance for Kambosos to beat any boxer ranked below him on Ring Magazine’s lightweight list because he’s so flawed, underpowered, and just above a lower-level opponent in terms of strength. talent.
Sean Jones will have Jeremiah Nakathilia far ahead of Kambosos because he’s a much better boxer, and would probably crush the Australians to shreds if they mixed it together.

This is a list of a BIG disappointment and completely unrealistic when judging the quality of the fighting fish at 135.

Kambosos Jr and Ryan Garcia didn’t make Sean Jones’s top 10 list because neither of them proved themselves against healthy, quality opposition. Ryan didn’t fight anyone and look poor at night in his last two games against Emmanuel Tagoe and Luke Campbell.
Kambosos would lose to Teofimo if he was healthy, and his best wins before that were near-razor fights against Mickey Bey and Lee Selby of the ex.
