Updates, 16 September 2014: ***Amnat Ruenroeng of Thailand takes a split decision over McWilliams Arroyo (#9) to cap off an impressive three-fight run at Flyweight and rises to the third rung of the division. Rising Argentine southpaw Jesus Marcelo Andres Cuellar bumps 38-year-old Celestino Caballero out of the tenth ranking at Featherweight. Mexican veteran Humberto Soto defeats John Molina and bumps out Adrien Broner for the tenth ranking at Jr. Welterweight. Marcos Maidana loses again to P4P/Jr. Middleweight King Floyd Mayweather Jr. and drops from #5 to #6 in the Welterweight division. (FYI: The Board brawl about whether to drop him at all was a lot closer than his bout.)

Big news at Lightweight… Miguel Vazquez (#2) just lost a disputable split decision to the Money Team’s Mickey Bey and drops to #4. At this moment, the top-two contenders under the vacant throne are scheduled to fight in November: Terence Crawford is #1 and Raymundo Beltran is now #2 as a result of Vazquez’s loss. Unless the Board decides to rank Richar Abril (returning from a long spell of inactivity on 9/20) at the top of the list, the Crawford-Beltran bout will crown a new lightweight king.

According to the boxing historians on the Board, a lightweight king has not been crowned since 2008 (namely, Juan Manuel Marquez after he stopped Joel Casamayor on 13 September of that year).***
