ESPN's divisional boxing rankings aim to highlight the best in the sport at every weight class. They will change often based on recent results and performances across the sport. Rankings are based on what a fighter has accomplished in the weight division in which he is ranked. A fighter who has announced he is moving up or down to a new weight division will not be ranked in a new weight class until he actually fights in that weight class (and warrants being ranked) and fighters that currently own titles in two different divisions will be ranked in both those weight classes.

Rankings are determined by Ben Baby, Cameron Wolfe and Michael Rothstein.

The junior welterweight and junior lightweight divisions are updated as of June 16. The featherweight and middleweights divisions are updated as of April 20. The heavyweight and welterweight divisions as of April 13. The light heavyweight and junior lightweight divisions as of April 6. All other weight classes are as of April 1.
