Whilst we could go through all the changes wed only bore you and instead we will just mention the most important changes.
- Kosei Tanaka (3-0, 1) has become the #1 ranked fighter at 105lbs and is now the official challenger to Ryuji Hara (18-0, 10). We would expect this bout to be made soon with Hara's mandatory already "over due".
- Hidenori Otake (22-3-1, 9) is now the #1 challenger to Shingo Wake (17-4-2, 10). Although Otake has moved up the rankings we'd not expect this bout to be made due to Wake suggesting he was set to vacate and Otake likely to fight Daisuke Furuhashi (16-5, 6) in a national title defence.
- Thailand's Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo (51-1, 33) has been made the #1 challenger at Featherweight Hisashi Amagasa (27-4-2, 18). We're not expecting the Thai to act on this as rumours are that he will be getting a world title fight or a world title eliminator.
- The Light Welterweight division has seen a shake up with Ja Ik Goo (3-0, 3) dropping down 3 places. This has seen Hiroki Okada (9-0, 7) move into the #2 position ready to fight the winner of the upcoming title fight.
