How the SaddoBoxing Ratings work:
· Rankings for each weight class were initially voted for by SaddoBoxing members. No Championships were given in the initial rankings.
· If the #1 ranked fighter fights the #2 ranked fighter and the championship is vacant, that fight automatically qualifies for the Saddoboxing Championship.
· If the #1 ranked fighter fights the #3, #4 or #5 ranked fighter and the championship is vacant, it will be decided if it merits being for the Saddoboxing Championship or not.
· If a fighter beats a higher ranked fighter they take that spot.
· If a rated fighter beats a fighter rated lower than him it will be decided if he should advance one or two spots or remain at his current ranking depending on the relevance of his victory.
· If a fighter ranked as Champion down thru to #5 loses; it will be decided whether he is demoted one to three spots depending how bad the loss is deemed. If the loss is to an unranked fighter the option to remove him straight to the pool will be considered.
· If a fighter ranked #6 thru to #10 loses; it will be decided how far he should be demoted. With removing him to the pool also an option.
· If a rated fighter loses to a fighter rated above him; it will be decided if he should retain his rank or be demoted.
· It will be decided which fights or fighters should fill vacancies in the top ten.
· Draws have no effect on the rankings.
· If a Champion or ranked fighter does not fight within a year; it will be decided whether to give him a six month extension or to remove him to the pool. If removed to the pool the fighter must win a bout before being eligible to be rated again. If a fighter who was granted an extension loses his next fight it will be decided how far he should be demoted. With removing him to the pool also an option.
· If a fighter has not won a fight in two years it will be decided if he receives a six month extension or is removed to the pool.
· Fighters can be ranked in multiple weight classes.
· Inactivity or poor performances can lead to a one spot demotion.
· If a fighter loses two fights in a row; it will be decided if he is removed directly to the pool.
