ATO AMATEUR RANKINGS

A few weeks ago I got a text from one of the writer’s for ATO, Rod Galvan. He and Tim Loy, another writer put their heads together and came up with a brilliant idea. An ATO Ranking system for amateur and pro fighters in the state.

Tim is based in East TN and has a lot of knowledge about the scene out there. Rod is from Memphis and is very tight with all the gyms there. I am based in Nashville and know a lot about the fighters in Middle TN. Between the three of us we came up with the ATO Top 10essee Rankings. The rankings, of course are officially unoffical and only the ISKA can determine who can contend for belts but this is a way to see who is the best in the state. And as we gets results from the ISKA and promoters we will adjust the rankings every month. The criteria is pretty simple. If you train or fight in Tennessee you can be ranked. If a fighter trains in Mississippi or Arkansas but has fought in Tennessee he can be ranked.

Without further adieu, ladies and gentleman the first ATO Top 10essee Rankings
