To Be The Best Addendum: From Baby Arizmendi to Diego Corrales

The process of researching and compiling results for the Centennial study of rankings in the pages of The Ring meant going far beyond the competitors whose final evaluations placed them in the top 100. As noted in the introduction to the original article that appeared in the February 2022 issue, over 1400 careers were evaluated and an additional pool of fighters who finished in the top 100 of one of the scored categories just missed the final cut. Interested readers will find their results against the rankings in this addendum, listed alphabetically, and presented on RingTV.com in a multi-part series.

The editing process for the addendum continued following the submission of the top 100 and yielded a handful of additional corrections that might have slightly altered the rankings in the scored categories, potentially slightly reordering the final 100. Those will be incorporated into any future revisions or expansions of this research.

As the addendum will show, 100 places was simply not enough to capture all of the great fighters who have moved in and out of the rankings in The Ring. The addendum won’t capture everyone who remains but should further insights into just how many special careers there have been through the years.

A-C

The first portion of the addendum features battlers spanning from the early days of Ring’s rankings and the early days of the 21st century. Baby Arizmendi had a notable series with the great Henry Armstrong, winning the first two of what would be five fights. Readers will also find highlighted a fighter at his best with the lightweight title on the line, Joe Brown; the span of accomplishments for Thailand’s exceptional Chartchai Chionoi; and the victor of arguably the greatest fight of the 2000s so far, Diego Corrales. Bantamweight great Panama Al Brown suffered in this study from several losses over the bantamweight limit, an example of where the math couldn’t capture a full picture. Brown is largely recalled as one of the great bantamweights of all time. Also included here are the results for a man Eddie Futch once said might have been the best he ever saw, Charley Burley.

[Editor’s note: An asterix by a result means The Ring title was on the line. A minus by an opponent’s ranking means the opponent was rated in the weight class below the fighter, a plus by an opponent’s rankings means the opponent was rated in the weight class above the fighter; two minuses means two weight classes lighter, two pluses means two weight classes heavier, etc.]
