Check out the Top 12 List at Middleweight

The top 12 list at middleweight based on feedback from their combat team are Gennadiy Golovkin, Zhanibek Alimkhanuly, Carlos Adames, Chris Eubank Jr., Erislandy Lara, Meiirim Nursultanov, Sergiy Derevyanchenko, Liam Smith, Vincenzo Gualtieri, Elijah Garcia, Felix Cash and Austin Williams. Professional boxing lacks a centralized ranking system or the top 12 list at middleweight because there are four major sanctioning bodies WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO each having their own champions. Since each of the sanctioning bodies anticipates that its champion will regularly defend their title against its topranked rival or top 12 list at middleweight, the rankings or the top 12 list at middleweight released by these organizations all share the attribute of not ranking the champions of the other organizations.

The TBRB and The Ring both publish their own independent rankings or the top 12 list at middleweight in addition to those released by the major sanctioning bodies without excluding any organization champions. To name a single champion for each division is the goal of both the TBRB and The Ring. These lists or the top 12 list at middleweight were created by a committee and are arbitrary. Since the 1990s several organizations have experimented with objective computerized rankings but they are occasionally viewed as not being able to account for all of boxing peculiarities and nuances.
