On the Move: SecondsOut World Rankings 1/30/11




By Derek Bonnett: Well, the first big bout of 2011 turned into the year’s first big bust in some sense. The fans weren’t buying tickets, the action was hardly memorable, and Devon Alexander found an escape route and is holding on to excuses. Oh well, boxing will survive and the SecondsOut’s world rankings will continue to shift. No ranking updates were submitted for the week of the 23 due to the postponement of Sebastian Sylvester and Steve Cunningham’s title defenses. Rest easy, SecondsOut has an array of updates this week for your perusal.

On Monday, January 24, in Bangkantak, Samut Songkrham, Thailand, Denkaosan Kaovichit ventured into 115 pound waters to meet trialhorse Yudi Arema for a regional title. Kaovichit emerged victorious by ninth round TKO to advance his record to 51-3-1 (21). Arema fell to 4-11-1 (3).

For now, Kaovichit will hold his number six ranking at 112. If he seeks more meaningful bouts at 115, he will be considered for the super flyweight rankings.

On the same card, Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym got back to his winning ways with a six-round decision over Simson Butar Butar. Poon-Krat raised his numbers to 42-2 (29). Butar Butar dropped to 19-15 -2 (14).

Kratingdaenggym holds down his number three spot at 122.

On Friday, January 28, at Khao Tong Temple, also in Thailand, Pongsaklek Wonjongkam remained boxing’s busiest world champion by scoring his second stoppage victory in 2011. Again, Wonjongkam dispatched a no-hoper opponent early with a third round stoppage of Ego Yohan. The WBC flyweight champion raised his record to 79-3-1 (43) in the non-title affair. Yohan has lost all three of his professional bouts by stoppage and has never seen a fourth round on record.

Wonjongkam is still the man to beat among Secondsout’s flyweights. However, is number one ranking is not secure with Luis Concepcion on his tail.

Also on January 28, at Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California, USA, the rugged Josesito Lopez stopped unbeaten prospect Mike Dallas Jr. in seven rounds. Fighting through a back cut over his left eye, Lopez improved his record to 29-3 (17). Dallas Jr. dropped to 17-1-1 (7).

SecondsOut welcome Lopez to the 140 pound ranks at ten. Cesar Rene Cuenca exits for the time being to make room for Lopez.

On Saturday, January 29, at the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan, USA, Timothy Bradley unified the WBO and WBC 140 pound titles with a tenth round technical decision over Devon Alexander. The bout was stopped after Alexander complained about an accidental head butt and could not open his eyes for the ringside physician. Bradley improved his dossier to 27-0 (11) while Alexander fell to 21-1 (13).


Bradley remained the number one junior welterweight at Secondsout. However, Alexander dropped from third to fifth after looking very vulnerable in his last two outings. Amir Khan holds at number two, but Marcos Rene Maidana is elevated to third and Andreas Kotelnik climbs to fourth.

Also on January 29, in Carnival City, Brakpan, Gauteng, South Africa, Nkosinathi Joyi remained the IBF 105 pound champion after his bout with Katsunari Takayama was ruled a no-contest after three rounds. Takayama suffered a cut about his left eye and was deemed unfit to continue. Joyi’s record stands at 21-0 (15) and Takayama remains 24-4 (10).

Joyi remains SecondsOut top strawweight and Takayama continues to be ranked tenth.

On the same card, Argenis Mendez scored a career best victory with a wide decision over former 130 pound champion Cassius Baloyi. Mendez now stands to meet Mzonke Fana for the IBF title since the Baloyi bout was a title eliminator. Mendez improved his record to 18-1 (9). Baloyi dropped to 37-6-1 (19).

Mendez solidified his standing as SecondsOut’s ninth best 130 pounder.
