Carl Frampton has appeared on the Ring Magazine's pound-for-pound list for the first time in his career. 

He enters the rankings at number 10 after an impressive win over Leo Santa Cruz at the weekend which crowned him the WBA featherweight champion. 

The majority decision win gave Frampton a world title in a second weight-class, to go along with his success at super-bantamweight. 

Unbeaten in 23 bouts, the Belfast boxer has a multitude of match-ups on the horizon. A rematch with Santa Cruz is a distinct possibility, as is a title match-up with Guillermo Rigendeaux at super-bantanweight. 

Also on the list are legendary fighter such as Mexico's Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, Gennady "GGG" Golovkin and two-time Olympic gold medalist and WBA/WBO super-bantamweight champion Rigendeaux.
