Ranking The Best Fighters In The World
Junior Flyweight 34 1 1 (6)
Last Year s Ranking: 14
Status Report: One of the best pure boxers of the last decade takes a substantial drop here, not due just to his loss to Giovani Segura but to the downward trajectory he s been on the last couple years. His struggles against Rodel Mayol in 2009 were followed by a win over Jesus Iribe (W 12) in which he was floored, and then Segura stopped him. Calderon is still a brilliant little fighter, just not as brilliant as he used to be.
Future: We d love to see a rematch with Segura. Maybe we can get a mini Ali Frazier series out of it.
