On the Move: SecondsOut World Rankings 6/19/11

By Derek Bonnett The highest profile world class boxing action was dominated by a number of growing stars from Central America. Anselmo Moreno just might be the best fighter you haven’t seen, but make no mistake: he is in the thick of things at 118 pounds. Saul Alvarez defeated his best challenge to date and Giovanni Segura tested the 115 pound waters. The SecondsOut world ranking continue to evolve as the summer heats up for bigger showdowns in the coming weeks.

On Friday, June 17, at Arena Roberto Duran, Panama City, Panama, Anselmo Moreno defended his WBA 118 pound title for the eighth time with an eighth round TKO of Lorenzo Parra. Parra once held the WBA 112 pound title and complained of a hand injury prior to the stoppage. Moreno enhances his ring stats to 31-1-1 (11). Parra slides to 31-3-1 (18).

Moreno remains third among SecondsOut’s star-studded 118 pound class. He is long overdue for a super fight within the division. Fernando Montiel will now be campaigning at 122 pounds and is removed from the bantamweight rankings. Eric Morel re-enters at tenth.

On Saturday, June 18, at Arena VFG, Tlajomulco de Zuniga, Jalisco, Mexico, Saul Alvarez TKO’d Ryan Rhodes in the final round of a twelve round WBC junior middleweight bout. Canelo controlled the action throughout and dropped Rhodes in the fourth round to earn the first defense of his title. Alvarez remained unbeaten at 37-0-1 (27). Rhodes’ dossier dropped to 45-5 (31).

Alvarez’ activity pushes him passed Antonio Margarito among SecondsOut’s’ top 154 pounders. Alvarez now stands at six. Margarito dips to seventh.

Also on the card, Adrien Broner blitzed Jason Litzau in one round of a scheduled ten round super featherweight bout. Broner established himself as the top American 130 pounder with ease, but will likely have to travel overseas to secure a title shot at any of the four champions. Broner remained unbeaten at 21-0 (17). Litzau’s streak came to an end as he fell to 28-3 (21).

Broner jumped two rankings from ninth to seventh amid SecondsOut’s elite 130 pounders. Litzau exits the top ten. Luis Cruz climbs aboard at tenth.

On the same evening, at Musica Hall, Toluca, Mexico, Mexico, IBF lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez kept busy with a second round stoppage of Marlon Aguilar in a non-title bout. Vazquez scored his second victory of the year and improved his resume to 29-3 (13). Aguilar dropped to 25-11-1 (18).

Vazquez held onto his number five ranking at SecondsOut amongst the best lightweights in the world.

Also on the card, Giovanni Segura checked in at 115 pounds for the first time since his second professional bout back in 2003. Segura scored an easy first round KO of Eddy Zuniga just before the end of the round. Segura’s ledger now reads 28-1-1 (24). Zuniga falls to 7-6-1 (1).

Segura currently held SecondsOut’s top honors at 108 pounds. However, due to his expressed interest in moving up in weight, he will now be considered a super flyweight, but remains unranked. The boxing world will surely lose out if Segura never meets Roman Gonzalez. With Segura out, Gonzalez claims the top spot and all the previously ranked contenders advance one ranking. Jesus Geles re-emerges among the top ten.
