September is usually the time that boxing exits the slower late summer months and gets revved back up with a number of big fights.
Sadly, that's not the case this year. For a variety of reasons, several enticing bouts haven't materialized, and others have been pushed back further into the fall.
That means there may not be a lot of movement in the BoxingWatchers.com power rankings over the next few weeks.
But props still go out to the pugilists who have been performing at a high level, and they deserve to be recognized.
If you haven't seen our rankings before, bear in mind that they don't attempt to determine who's the best boxer pound-for-pound.
Instead, they attempt to evaluate who has been the most impressive most often over the last three years.
The factors that go into a boxer's score are activity, decisiveness of wins (with more points for a KO than a decision, as well as negative points for any losses) and the recent winning percentage of his opponents.
The hypothetical perfect score is 36, but anything over 15 is excellent.
With that said, let's get to this month's list!
