Lightweight rankings

Latest update: February 2024

Taylor Grant and Sophie Schumann are two of the best boxers to ever grace the division. They have a rematch coming and solid new contenders ready to hunt for them next.

Taylor Grant
We always knew that the Peppermint had the talent to make it to the very top, and she is at the peak of her powers. The spectacular knockout she scored against Julia Rose makes us believe she will be hard to dethrone.
Taylor Grant
Sophie Schumann
The German prodigy has overcome sporting adversity to get back into the thick of elite boxing when edging Kiki Spinelli. We also hear that she is sorting out personal matters before getting ready for a rematch with Taylor Grant.
Sophie Schumann
JUANA SÁNCHEZ
The Mexican bruiser has re-established herself with commanding performances in the last six months. We grant her a top spot for her return at Lightweight, where she is most likely to do much damage.
Juana Sanchez
Lia Gandhi
The fastest rising prospect in the business. The Olympic gold medallist isn’t only undefeated; she dominated solid gatekeepers in Astrid Olsson and Inna Saar to create expectations.
Lia Gandhi
Elsie Nadege
The Cameroonian veteran has hardly lost a step. Falling short in title matches hasn’t prevented her from giving a red leather overdose to other opponents. She may be the most painful gatekeeper any boxer may face.
Elsie Nadege
Leonie von Hammerstein
Surviving a scare and showing poise against Catarina Espiga makes the member of the former nobility a potent threat in the division. A test against one of the elite members may come sooner than we thought.
Leonie von Hammerstein
Astrid Olsson
Recent results have painted a mixed picture for the Swedish Sweetheart. A win against Summer Simpson keeps her relevant but a loss to Lia Gandhi reveals a ceiling. At the same time, she remains an entertainer.
Astrid Olsson
Kiki Spinelli
Depth is needed in boxing and Spinelli provides just that. She tested Sophie Schumann’s resilience with a strong showing in Milan, which shows that she is a tough proposition.
Kiki Spinelli
Julia Rose
Getting knocked out is no fun for a pugilist but Rose has the excuse that she faced a champion who is currently unyielding. A good contender who could take on anyone else and give them a fight.
