Updates, 30 June 2015: *** Martin Murray (#5) previously announced that he will be campaigning at super middleweight, won his debut last week, and intends to remain in that division. Murray exits the Middleweight rankings along with Sam Soliman (#7) who dropped a decision to Dominic (“The Blade”) Wade, of Maryland, USA. Many members wanted Englishman Billy Joe Saunders over Wade despite Wade’s defeat of a contender, and won the day based on the debatable Wade-Soliman decision and based on the belief that Saunders is overdue for entry. Saunders enters at #9, Wade at #10 and no one’s unhappy. Saunders will be put the test in September when he faces third-ranked Irishman Andy Lee.
American Diego Magdaleno (“Mr. Superb”) defeats Jose Gonzalez and continues a five-fight winning streak after dropping a split decision to Roman Martinez over two years ago. He bumps out Petr Petrov at Lightweight. ***
