Super Featherweight Rankings
Latest update: October 2023
BOX! Magazine has released their rankings for the fall of 2023.
Emma McGale reigns, in the Super Featherweight division, but she has plenty of rivals that are a serious threat to her. Box Magazine takes a look at one of the deepest divisions in boxing.
McGale has run the gauntlet in the division and has emerged as a star and worthy champion. With her strength, power and growing skill, she’s a daunting challenge for anyone to take on. Wambui Njeri will present an interesting challenge for her if that fight happens – someone who is at least as strong as she is
The Danish fighter sent Sara Ings packing and that is the kind of performance that draws fans and moves up the rankings. Her reputation as a fighter that can’t win title fights is one that she would like to end shortly. Emma McGale may be her last chance at a title.
The classy swan enters near the top of the rankings at Super Featherweight by knocking out Mechelle Gauthier. Barker’s resume is nearly flawless, but her performances don’t always seem to match her obvious talent. She may need one more win to secure a title fight.
Perez was outdueled by McGale, but not by very much, and thus its hard to drop her much in the rankings. Perez remains sublimely skilled and dangerous, and with no indication that she is losing favour with Final Bell, she could easily see herself fighting for titles again.
It’s a harsh fall for Karras, who saw her reputation take a serious hit when she was KO’d by Emma McGale. Young and still skilled, her aura has been shattered, but can be rebuilt, if done so carefully. We are believers.
The Mexican puncher has been fairly quiet since getting punched out by Chelsea Carter. Her win against Simone Batista shows what she can do when given the opportunity. Her reputation as a top sparring partner also hints to a good level of talent.
An oft avoided fighter who needs a dance partner to see if there’s any upside to the elusive boxer. Not a fan favourite, but a fighter that will test many on their way up the ranks.
The delightful Gauthier is a fan-favourite pugilist that may never win a world title, but will be remembered for her entertaining fights, including her last against Heather Barker. If the opportunity presented, we’d love to see her face Emma McGale to cap off their trilogy.
The unheralded Lalonde upset the applecart against Parissa Tavakoli. She’s a game fighter, but this division is very deep in terms of talent. She may find that out soon enough
The best prospect in this division by far has answered at least one question by getting a stoppage in her last fight. Hayashi looks like a star and has a chance to be one. It will be up to her to grab it.
