The changes at Minimumweight are minimal but simple. We have lost recent WBC title challenger Jeffrey Galero (previously #13), who was beaten by Wanheng Menayothin, and seen him replaced by Thailand's Pigmy Kokietgym (#13).
In the Flyweight division the WBA have removed China's Zou Shiming (previously #4) which has allowed everyone below, including John Riel Casimero (#4) and Yodmongkol Vos Saengthep (#5) to move up a place. The movement has also allowed Tetsuma Hayashi (#15) to enter the rankings ahead of his clash with Japanese champion Suguru Muranaka (himself ranked #8)
At Bantamweight we've lost former world champion Tepparith Kokietgym (previously #13), who has been incredibly inactive. Tepparith's removal has been to the benefit of Luis Nery (#8) who has strangely forced several established contenders, notably Malcolm Tunacao (#9) and Ryo Akaho (#10) to drop a place each.
It's at Featherweight where we first see some notable changes. These have included an interesting, though disappointing, fall for Satoshi Hosono (#5), who has dropped 3 places. Further down the rankings Nonito Donaire (#7), Dennis Tubieron (#11) and Hiroshige Osawa (#15) have also each dropped a single place.
At Lightweight we have lost Uzbekistan's Bahodir Mamadjonov (previously #10)
Filipino Light Welterweight Czar Amonsot (#11) has found himself dropping 2 places and falling out of the top 10.
At Light Middleweight the heavy handed Kanat Islam (#9) has dropped 2 places.
Light Flyweight, Super Flyweight, Welterweight, Cruiserweight have seen no changes
Not a single Asian is ranked at Super Featherweight, Middleweight, Super Middleweight, Light Heavyweight or Heavyweight.
Note-We no longer consider Russian's are part of Asia.
