PhilBoxing.com




Newly crowned WBC world featherweight champion Mark "Magnifico" Magsayo is only ranked second among best active boxers in the division by the authoritative Ring Magazine and the widely read boxing website BoxRec.com. which holds updated records of professional and amateur boxers.

While the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board (TBRB), composed of independent professional journalists, boxing historians and record keepers from around the world, ranked Magsayo as the third best active featherweight in the world in its latest rankings.

Surprisingly, Magsayo is not included in the list of top ten active featherweights by ESPN. Gary Russell Jr. is removed from the list "due to inactivity" before the Magsayo fight.

The top 15 featherweights as recorded by BoxRec:
1 Emanuel Navarrete 35-1-0 (29 KOs) Mexico
2 Mark Magsayo 24-0-0 (16 KOs) Philippines
3 Gary Allen Russell Jr. 31-2-0 (18 KOs) USA
4 Rey Vargas 35-0 (22 KOs) Mexico
5 Leigh Wood 25-2-0 (15 KOs) UK
6 Isaac Dogboe 23-2-0 (15 KOs) Ghana
7 Mauricio Lara 23-2-1 (16 KOs) Mexico
8 Josh Warrington 30-1-1 (7 KOs) UK
9 Kiko Martinez 43-10-2 (30 KOs) Spain
10 Kid Galahad 28-2-0 (17 KOs) UK

The top ten featherweights as listed by TBRB:
1 Mauricio Lara
2 Emanuel Navarrete
3 Mark Magsayo
4 Gary Russell Jr.

The WBA Super champion is Leo Santa Cruz. The WBA Regular champion is Leigh Wood. The WBO champion is Emanuel Navarrete. The IBF champion is Kiko Martinez. The WBC champion is Mark Magsayo.

Magsayo said that he couldn't surpass the achievements of Manny Pacquiao but he can just follow the track that the eight division world champion had trodden.

“There’s no next Manny Pacquiao, there’s only one Manny Pacquiao and I’m following his footsteps,” said Magsayo as quoted by Inquirer Sports. “He’s my idol since I was a kid, he was my hero there in the Philippines. He’s my hero.”

Pacquiao is the only eight-division world champion in the history of boxing in this planet and has won twelve major world titles.

“No one can surpass the history of Manny Pacquiao but I’m following his footsteps now,” said Magsayo who is slated to defend his title against Mexico’s Rey Vargas, the WBC top contender. “I’m doing my best every training, every sparring, every fight. I’ll do my best to win every fight.

Trainer Freddie Roach does not want Pacquiao to be compared with any fighter but the Hall of Fame coach says there is one trait that Pacquiao and Magsayo are comparable.

“He has a lot of heart, he listens well in the gym, he trains hard. Like Manny Pacquiao, he’s a hard worker. The only reason Manny won eight world titles is because of his work ethic. His work ethic got him all the way there, and Mark is the same way,” said Roach ss quoted by Ring TV.

Magsayo said he provided his father his own bakery in their hometown in Tagbilaran City with the money he earned from his knockout victory of Julio Ceja on August 21. He said he will buy his father a house with the prize he earned from his title triumph over Russell.
