Updates29 September 2015: *** First-ranked Cruiserweight Yoan Pablo Hernandez, now retired, exits the rankings as does seventh-ranked Kryzstof Wlodarczyk, who has just crossed the one-year inactivity mark. Ilunga Makabu, who knocked out Thabisu Mchunu in May and was bumped out in August, wins unanimous support to reenter at #9. Tony Bellew has gone 5-0 in the division since losing his bid to take the throne of Adonis Stevenson. He enters at #10 with much less than unanimous support. Bellew beats out competing proposals in Firat Arslan and Youri Kayembre Kalenga.

Speaking of Light heavyweight king Adonis Stevenson… he called out the number-one threat to his reign on twitter yesterday. (“What’s up @KrusherKovalev?” Keep working hard. Let’s rumble.”) Serious words by a serious man or idle wind? Time will tell.

@ P4P:  A proposal to move Juan Francisco Estrada up one spot over Guillermo Rigondeaux, who has fought only twice since 2013, was defeated.***
