Pound4poundireland’s June 23rd Jr. Flyweight top 10

1. Roman Gonzalez (titlist)

2. Adrian Hernandez (titlist)

3. Johnriel Casimero (titlist)

4. Donnie Nietes (titlist)

5. Moises Fuentes

6. Pedro Guevara

7. Kazuto Ioka

8. Ramon Garcia Hirales

9. Alberto Rossel

10. Raul Garcia

 

– After a recent revision of my ratings policy regarding being able to rank contenders active in multiple divisions, recent 105 kingpin Fuentes has been inserted into the position of 5th on the strength of his draw vs. Nietes.

He has since made the move to 108 permanent, and his second fight here is forthcoming

 

– Carlos Buitrago exits
