Ring Ratings Update:
Welterweights: Jan Zaveck (No. 7 last week) has traded places with Joshua Clottey (No. 6 last week) following Zaveck’s KO of Paul Delgado. The fact that Clottey has not fought since his loss to Manny Pacquiao on March 13, 2010 also figured into the move. Zaveck has fought three times in that time span, winning all three, including a 12-round decision over Rafal Jackiewicz, the only man to beat him as a pro.
Bantamweights: Donaire zoomed from No. 5 to No. 1 on the strength of his spectacular second-round KO of Montiel, who tumbles from No. 1 to No. 5.
Pound for pound: Donaire’s KO of Montiel also advanced him from No. 5 to No. 3 in this mythical rating. Montiel (No. 7 last week) exits. This allows all boxers rated below No. 7 last week to move up one spot each, and makes room for Giovani Segura to debut at No. 10.
