*For current and up to date rankings go to Top 10 Super Flyweight Boxers – World Rankings
When it comes to the lighter-weight classes in boxing, we are seeing some exceptional fighters come up. From Juan Francisco Estrada and Roman Gonzalez to Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, the division is completely stacked with talent, and we can expect some incredible fights from the Super Flyweights in the near future.
Last night, three of the top ten Super-Flyweight fighters were competing, and there have been some changes in the rankings. So, here are my top-ten rankings after last night’s card.
The top ten rankings are usually a topic on which many boxing fans disagree. There are many incredible fighters in the weight division who haven’t made it in my rankings but definitely deserve an honorable mention.
Javier Cintron is an excellent fighter, he won the vacant WBO International junior bantamweight title in 2019; however, he later lost it in his last fight against top ten contender Kazuto Ioka.
Francisco Rodriguez Jr also makes the list of honorable mentions, and he also became the WBC Latino Super-Flyweight champion in 2019.
Pedro Guevara, Yanga Sigqibo, and Mohammed Obbadi also deserve to be in the honorable mentions.
Top 10 Super Flyweights
10. Khalid Yafai
Starting the list, and coming in at number 10, we have Khalid Yafai. Yafai is about as talented as they come; he won the WBA Super Flyweight title in late 2016 and defended it four times. With a record of 26-1, his only defeat came against the now-former WBA Super Flyweight champ, Román González, in 2020.
Kal’s next fight is still to be announced; however, whoever his opponent is, it is going to be a very important bout.
9. Carlos Cuadras
Carlos Roberto Cuadras Quiroa has a record of 39 wins and 4 losses, and he makes the list at number 9. He also remained the WBC Super Flyweight champion from 2014 to 2016 and defended the title six times.
He lost the belt to Román González in 2016 with a Unanimous decision. In 2018, Carlos Cuadras fought against Ricardo Núñez for the vacant WBC International bantamweight title, and won the title, adding another achievement to his career.
After going on the three-fight win streak, Carlos Cuadras got a rematch against Juan Francisco Estrada for the WBC and The Ring Super-Flyweight titles; however, he lost the fight via TKO in the 11th.
Therefore Cuadras has fought the who’s who of the division and is one of the top Super Flyweights right now.
8. McWilliams Arroyo
The next boxer on our list hails from Puerto Rico and is the current WBC interim Flyweight champion. He won the title last month via TKO in the fifth, against Nicaraguan boxer, Abraham Rodriguez.
In 2018, he won the vacant WBC Silver Super Flyweight title, but couldn’t defend it, and lost the title in his next fight. McWilliams Arroyo also holds the WBO Latino Flyweight title, which he has defended once against Carlos Buitrago.
In his next fight, McWilliams Arroyo is probably going to face off against Julio Cesar Martinez, which will be a tough challenge and an interesting fight. However, the date for this fight is still to be announced.
7. Andrew Moloney
For the next member of the top ten, we head to the land down under. Andrew Moloney is an Australian Pro boxer. He won the WBA interim Super-Flyweight title in 2019, which was promoted to the regular title in 2020.
Andrew Moloney lost the WBA Super-Flyweight title to Joshua Franco in 2020. His next fight was a rematch against Joshua Franco, but it was declared as a no-contest since Franco’s eye got damaged because of an accidental headbutt.
6. Joshua Franco
Joshua Franco is one of the top fighters in the division, and he is the current WBA Super-Flyweight champion. Franco has a record of 17 wins, one loss, two draws, and one no contest, which happened due to an accidental headbutt in his last fight against Andrew Moloney.
Joshua Franco also won the WBC-NABF and vacant WBA International bantamweight titles in 2019 and retained the title in a rematch against Oscar Negrete.
Franco is one of the most exciting fighters in the division. That combined with his impressive record, puts him at number six on our top ten list.
