=======================================================

These are computer rankings based on rating every fight's matchup
quality as well as the results.  They are independent of any and all
sanctioning bodies, although some sanctioning bodies may use them as
a basis for their own rankings.

The computer ranking program generates a numerical score for
each fighter's standing.  These scores can show you where a
ranking order is hotly contested and where it is clearer.

Links to details of the computer scoring system, and listings of the last
two years of fight results used to determine the rankings in each weight class
are given on WBAN at

http://www.wban.org/rankings/rankpage.htm

which also has links to the biographies and ring backgrounds of many of the
ranked boxers.
