Updates, 3 December: ***Juan Carlos Sanchez may have found out too late that his body disagrees with the Jr. Bantam weight limit as South African Zolani Tete knocks him out in ten rounds in Mexico. Tete assumes the fourth ranking as the formerly third-ranked Sanchez exits. Liborio Solis (#3) defeats the formidable Daiki Kameda (#10) and, says the Board, both deserve to remain where they are. Zaurbeck Baysangurov (#8) exits the Jr. Middleweight rankings for inactivity and a new old face appears at the tenth spot, beating out rising star Willie Nelson and fading warrior Alfredo Angulo. Ismayl Sillakh’s hopes of entering the Light Heavyweight rankings are run over by a tank called Sergey Kovalev, while Tony Bellew’s strategy is blitzed by Light Heavyweight King Adonis Stevenson, and his failure cost him in the rankings. ***
