    Default How would rankings be if we had the original 8 weight classes and 1 belt?

    So let’s imagine that we went back to the original 8 weight classes and 1 belt per division. Rate your top five in every division. I know that some people may be hard to figure out if they would go up or down in weight, but just do your best to be realistic.

    Flyweight
    I’ll be honest, I don’t know enough people at those weight classes to make an informed opinion.

    Bantamweight
    Inoue
    Nery
    Estrada
    Wangek
    Rigo (I think he is probably still good enough)

    Featherweight
    Santa Cruz
    Warrington
    Russell
    Stevenson
    Navarrete

    Lightweight
    M. Garcia (I think he could still make the weight)
    Loma
    Davis
    Berchelt
    Easter

    Welterweight
    Crawford
    Spence
    Pacquiao
    Prograis
    Taylor

    Middleweight
    Canelo (as much as it pains me to say)
    GGG
    Jermall Charlo
    Jermell Charlo
    Andrade

    Light heavyweight
    Gvozdyk
    Bivol
    Kovalev
    Beterbiev
    Benavidez

    Heavyweight
    Fury
    Wilder
    Ruiz
    AJ
    Usyk

    The main problem is that I don’t see most of the good fighters to be able to drop down into the lower weight class. Most of the bigger fighters would just have an advantage. Maybe there are some I missed.

    In bantam I would stick Rodriguez in there in between Nery and Estrada. Estrada moving up in weight would be no match for Manny.

    I'd flip flop Wilder and Fury at HW.

    I think Gervonta moves down to feather and moves your entire list down one notch.

    I thought about putting Rodriguez at #5. But you could be right that he might be too big for Estrada

    I am not even going to try and make comparisons because I have got to go out to dinner right now but rest assured if a man wants to be champ he's going to be getting his mail delivered to the gym with only eight weight classes.
