Ratings - we, as Ratings Committee, will at all times ensure room for growth and development in each division and abstain from keeping any division stagnated.
All boxers will be rated according to result based activity and inactivity, weight, performances and inadequate performances.
With reference to inactivity - we will keep a boxer in mind as long as that boxer has been active within at least the year prior. Boxers with just 1 professional fight will not receive a ranking even if they have beaten a rated boxer - future justification of a ranking will depend on ratings criteria.
Only registered licensed Boxers shall be rated within top 10 SA rankings.
MMA fighters shall not receive a ranking within top 10 SA rankings and neither mentioned anywhere else on rankings. When an amicable resolution regarding MMA fighters competing in Boxing as well is found we may consider such for a rating.
Winning an International title may or may not improve a Boxer's ranking.
The Watchlist section - up to 4 Boxers maybe mentioned - these Boxers is being monitored and depending on result base performance they maybe included in future rankings. Being mentioned in the Watchlist section do not guarantee a future rating.
International section - All South African based boxers holding any international title will be mentioned here as well as boxers whom is competing only at International level - these Boxers may or may not be included in top 10 SA rankings it depends on their current International career. All SA boxers based and competing in other countries also to be mentioned in this section.
