Let’s face it, no rating system or ranking list is perfect, not even the one used here at Fight Matrix.  There are varying perspectives, varying protocols and complex calculations (well, at least here) at play. Where the media lists and personal lists suffer, which is in the realm of lacking knowledge and bias — we […]

Boxing totals from BoxRec.   The totals are likely a little light due to missing bouts, but the trend is what is of importance.  Has MMA peaked?  Is boxing REALLY dying? Quantity only means so much, but it is extremely important in the development of new talent.

They agreed on weight (147) and the glove size (8 oz), but could not come together on the money.  Oscar offered a 70-30 split, while Pacquiao wouldn’t take less than 40%. The fact of the matter is, people pay to see De La Hoya.  In his match-up with Mayweather, the combined purse was just over […]

De La Hoya plans to call it a career after a December bout, one where an opponent has not yet been finalized.  However, as it stands now, all signs point to a Welterweight showdown with boxing’s best pound-for-pound fighter, Manny Pacquiao.  At first glance, you’d think that the boxing world would take kindly to one […]

A recent question from a BoxRec forum poster put me on the hunt to find out which boxer had the largest amount of consecutive losses before winning a bout. Believe it or not, a boxer named Frankie Hines lost 51 consecutive bouts before winning again.  The streak spanned over 7 years (Dec 1993 – Mar […]

Its been a while since I’ve posted about boxing, but just recently, I did an analysis based on reach measurements. I researched all the way back to the beginnings of boxing, to determine whether or not the boxer with the longer reach won much more often. I discovered that a boxer with any reach advantage […]

Everyone has varying opinions as to whether or not a boxer (or fighter) can rebound from a knockout loss. We know it happens, but how often? I dug into the BoxRec database, and came up with some numbers. From 1980 to present, a boxer losing by knockout, technical knockout, or corner retirement, won the rematch […]

It has been a personal hobby of mine to keep a pound-for-pound boxing list to compare with those of others, including those of major publications.  Like in the computerized system, I try to put neutrality first and determine who the very best fighters of the world are, independent of weight divisions. 1.  Floyd Mayweather Jr. […]
