Unbeaten middleweight Tommy Langford has been handed a boost in the WBO World rankings after successfully defending his Intercontinental title against Cristian Rios earlier this month.

The former England amateur captain, whose pro record stands at 14-0, is currently sitting pretty in fifth place within the World Boxing Organisation’s Middleweight order of merit.

In front of Langford in the rankings lies unbeaten duo Arif Magomedov and Hugo Centeno Jr plus the WBO European Title holder Artur Akavov.

Langford was last seen on BoxNation screens making his debut on the other side of the camera during our recent World War 3 show in Manchester, accompanying Charlie Webster and Steve Lillis on punditry duties.

The 26 year old will have a keen eye on December 19 as champion Andy Lee goes into battle with stable mate and WBO ranked number 1 mandatory challenger Billy Joe Saunders.

Devon born, Brummie based Langford will be hoping to kick on during 2016 and keep his unbeaten record in tact to edge closer to a potential World Title shot.
