Born in Belleville, New Jersey, U.S.A. in 1982, I have followed the sport of boxing since I was six-years-old. After losing my job in February 2009 due to the economic recession, I created this website to promote the sport. Now, I cover fight cards ringside. I will provide press releases from promoters, previews of upcoming bouts, interviews with various fighters, and recaps of major televised fights. BoxingLedger.com is currently ranked in the top 14% among all boxing websites on the internet. Thank you for your continued support! You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pound-For-Pound rankings were established to determine if a fighter, who is paramount in his weight class, is also superior when compared to other fighters atop their own respective weight divisions. How did I formulate these current rankings? It is comprised of careful observation, analysis and evaluation through the years on four specific criteria.
1) Quality of Opposition - What level of competition has each fighter faced?
2) Performance Level - How did the fighter fare against the various styles he encountered?
3) Age - Did the fighter defeat his opponents while they were in the prime of their careers?
4) Significance of a Loss - If a fighter lost, how did he lose? Was it via decision or knockout? Did he sustain a loss at the hands of high-quality competition? Was he at the peak of his career when he suffered a defeat?
