A look at the four best Lightweights in the world



This time last year, Juan Manuel Marquez, Robert Guerrero and Brandon Rios were considered the three main men in the Lightweight division. But nowadays Marquez and Rios are fighting at Light Welterweight and Guerrero is scheduled to fight at Welterweight. So with all three of the biggest names at Lightweight moving up in weight, let's take a look at the four candidates for the best Lightweight in the world.

Richard Abril - If your talking about who the lineal champion at Lightweight should be then surely you have got to say Richard Abril. After Marquez and Guerrero moved up in weight Brandon Rios was considered the best Lightweight on the planet. Well Rios has said that he will never fight at Lightweight again and many thought (including me) that Richard Abril easily beat Brandon Rios. But technically Abril didn't get the 'W' and he isn't a major belt holder.


Ricky Burns - Burns has only had two fights at Lightweight but both fights were against quality competition. Burns became the WBO World Champion by out-pointing Michael Katsidis last November. Burns made his first defence of his belt this year when he won just about every round against solid contender Paulus Moses. These are two good wins for Burns, but does he need one or two more of these wins before being considered the number one man at 135 IBS?


Miguel Vasquez - Vasquez has been the IBF Lightweight champion for about a year and a half now and he has made three defences of his belt. Vasquez's only losses come to Saul Alvarez and Timothy Bradley so you know that he is a hard man to beat. But the question is, do any other of the Lightweights on this list have what it takes to beat Vasquez?

Antonio DeMarco - DeMarco became the WBC Lightweight champion by beating the extremely talented Jorge Linares last year. DeMarco defended his title in his home country of Mexico earlier this year, and he is scheduled to defend his belt again this July. DeMarco also once held the interim WBC belt in 2009 before losing to Edwin Valero in 2010. Is DeMarco's win over Jorge Linares enough to call him the best Lightweight in the world?


Based on his recent schooling of Brandon Rios, I think Richard Abril is the best at Lightweight. But if you disagree with me then let me know.
