AIBA World Women’s Rankings!

AIBA World Women’s Rankings!

AIBA, the International Boxing Association, has come out with their first world rankings. The rankings are based on AIBA’s scoring formula as of April 1, 2012.  It makes for interesting reading ahead of the 2012 Women’s World Championships especially as the top eight of each of the Olympic weight categories will be selected to compete at the Olympics in July. It should be noted that the rankings do not reflect the recently completed 2012 Women’s Elite Continental Boxing Championships.

Here are the top five in each of the Olympic weight categories:

51 KG Top Five Rankings

51KG, #1 Ranked, Ren Cancan, China

   #1. Ren Cancan, China

   #2. Nicola Adams, England

   #3. Alice Kate Aparri, Philippines

   #4. Karolina Michalczuk, Polank

   #5. Tetyana Kob, Ukraine

USA Boxing champion Marlen Esparza is ranked 7th overall, just behind India’s great champion Mary Kom who is ranked 6th.
