Updates, 26 August 2014: ***The Viking of Guadalajara Victor Terrazas (#5, Jr. Featherweight) has passed the one-year mark of inactivity. He was scheduled to fight earlier this month but underwent surgery late in July. The surgery was successful and we look forward to his return to perfect health (and the ring, though we don’t know when that will be). The Board considered several Jr. Featherweights to move into the #10 spot, and it came down to American Manuel “Tino” Avila  and Filipino Genesis Servania. Avila edged Servania and no punches were thrown.

We are also monitoring the progress of undefeated British, Commonwealth, and European champion Kid Galahad (17-0 9 KOs) and Las Vegas’s own Jessie Magdaleno (19-0, 15 KOs), both whom were mentioned by members in the rankings discussions this week. ***
