Chilemba Enters Ring's Ratings

Isaac Chilemba (19-1-1, 9 KOs) entered The Ring's light heavyweight ratings this week. He debuts at number ten. Chilemba is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over former title contender Edison Miranda in February. A spot was open in the top ten when Ismayl Sillakh lost to underdog Denis Grachev this past Friday.

Chilemba, who is from Malawi and is in the process of shifting his home base from South Africa to the United States, plans on deciding on his next opponent at some point this month. The "Golden Boy" reached the ratings thanks in part to a draw with the sixth rated super middleweight in the world Thomas Oosthuizen, a win over prospect Maxim Vlasov, and the victory over Miranda.
