Overnight the WBA issued their updated world rankings, though we've only spotted spotted some very limited changes
At Minimumweight we've not seen many changes with the most notable mover being Takumi Sakae (#12) who has climbed slightly this month.
In the Light Flyweight division we've seen some positive and interesting changes with Takuma Inoue (#5) moving up one place. The most notable new inclusion here is Yemeni fighter Ali Raymi (#10).
The changes at Flyweight have been small but notable with Kwanpichit OnesongchaiGym (previously #13) dropping out following his clear loss to Zou Shiming (#4), this has made room for his Thai compatriot Nawaphon Por Chokchai (#14).
Super Flyweight has seen no changes of note regarding Asian fighters.
The changes at Bantamweight have come well down the rankings with Malcolm Tunacao (#11) climbing up 2 places whilst Ryo Akaho (#13) has moved up a single place.
At Super Bantamweight we now find a new entrant in the shape of Hisashi Amagasa (#10), who of course is dropping down from Featherweight, and we've also seen Hidenori Otake (#13) drop down the rankings following his recent loss to Scott Quigg in a world title bout.
At Featherweight we've seen numerous changes with Amagasa (previously #11) dropping out of the Featherweight rankings to a place at Super Bantamweight. Taking Amagasa's position is Filipino Dennis Tubieron (#11) whilst further down the rankings Hiroshige Osawa (#14) has moved into the rankings to replace Rogelio Jun Doliguez.
There have been no changes at Super Featherweight
In the Lightweight division we've seen Jorge Linares (previously #2) removed from the rankings following the announcement of his WBC world title fight. As a result of Linares's removal we've seen numerous fighters moving up a single place, including Petr Petrov (#2), Eduard Troyanovsky (#3) and Takahiro Ao (#4) who will all be hoping to get a world title fight in 2015. Sadly it seems that all of those men are being over-looked for the currently unranked Anthony Crolla who is set to get a world title fight in early 2015.
We've got no changes at Welterweight, Light Middleweight, Middleweight, Super Middleweight or Light Heavyweight.
Cruiserweight sees some small changes with Beibut Shumenov (#2) having some how moved up a place whilst Dmitry Kudryashov (#6) burst on to the rankings following his stunning KO against Juan Carlos Gomez, a third change here has seen Rakhim Chakhkiev (#10) move up a place.
There is no changes at Heavyweight.
