Updates, 15 July 2014: *** The clash of styles between the two top-ranked Jr. Middleweight contenders that was Canelo-Lara is behind us now. Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has returned to the #1 slot after a fight that most observers saw as a toss-up decision or a draw. Erislandy “The American Dream” Lara has a bundle of solace in his arms- a newborn daughter!

Mauricio Herrera demonstrated what an advanced degree in the sweet science looks like in a victory over gritty Venezuelan Johan Perez, and finds it enough to rise in the Jr. Welterweight rankings over three fighters coming off losses.

Any lingering argument between Jr. Lightweights Rances Barthelemy and Argenis Mendez was put to rest in a comparatively uneventful decision win by Barthelemy. The Board decided to switch their respective rankings. Meanwhile, a bandit by the name of Francisco Vargas steals the tenth spot from Javier Fortuna after likely (and hopefully) retiring faded former top-contender Juan Manuel Lopez.

Finally, Japan’s Tomoki Kameda knocks out Thailand’s Pungluang Sor Singyu and rises from #8 to #3 in the Bantamweight rankings. Sor Singyu is now 48-3 (31) and had never been stopped before. Tomoki is the youngest of the three fighting Kameda brothers (Koki is #4 at Bantamweight and Daiki is #9 at Jr. Bantamweight).
