Super Lightweight rankings

Latest update: September 2022

BOX! Magazine has issued its rankings update for the late summer of 2022. Our heads are spinning.

Champion

vacant

Much to our surprise, there is a power vacuum. Steffi Slater won the title before losing it to Sky Houghton, who called it a career. There are new contenders to the belt as you can find below.

Number 1

Alesia Schumann

The Diva is anything but done if you judge by her recent performance against Melanie Spitzer. A fast knockout against a dangerous puncher shows that the Bavarian still “has it” in elite boxing terms. The WBU now considers her as mandatory for a world title fight.

Number 2

Chelsea Carter

The stars have aligned for the lightning girl. She has been nearly perfect since becoming a professional boxer. Her loss to Taylor Grant can be forgiven since she stopped the ever-durable Chloé Potvin. We consider that she is worthy of a title fight.

Number 3

Taylor Grant

There’s nothing wrong with this fighter. Except for the fact that her wins and losses seem to come at the wrong time. Carter has more momentum than she does and that’s why she’s just behind.

Number 4

Steffi Slater

Great champions fall. Late champions like Steffi Slater can stumble without shame. She lost to peak Sky Houghton and has nothing to worry about in terms of legacy. Let’s see where she will take her career.

Number 5

Chloé Potvin

The former number one contender has to regroup after missing her chance to take the position back due to defeat at the hands of Chelsea Carter.

Number 6

Sarita Waris

There’s a new kid in town! A hard and controversial young woman from Finland shocked the boxing world with a great knockout against Delara Salimi. That event, coupled with natural talent, makes us fast-track her to the Top 10.

Number 7

Delara Salimi

Time for a rebuild, perhaps? Salimi did great for years but she was stunned by a bad result against Sarita Waris. We don’t count her out just yet.
