Updates, 27 January 2015: *** Mexico’s Adrián Jaime Estrella and Dominican Javier Fortuna both scored first-round stoppages in December in the city of their respective births. Both have just earned a late Christmas present as the Board ushers them into the #9 and #10 Jr. Lightweight rankings respectively and on the heels of inactive Mikey Garcia (2) and Juan Carlos Burgos (6).
American Mike Alvarado’s second straight loss at welterweight counts against his being ranked at Jr. Welterweight. His exit welcomes the younger, fresher, Thomas Dulorme who returns to the #10 spot after a brief absence. Dulorme, born in French Guiana and now residing in Puerto Rico, defeated former lightweight contender Hank Lundy in December before getting bumped out by Jose Benavidez’s entry into the top-ten. ***

Board membership includes at least twenty-five respected boxing journalists and record keepers from around the world who are uncompromised by so-called sanctioning bodies and promoters.
