At Minimumweight one of the few interesting changes regards Japanese wonder kid Kosei Tanaka (#3) who has moved up a place. Strangely we've seen Xiong Zhao Zhong (#10) jump back into the rankings whilst former OPBF champion Ryuji Hara (previously #12) has dropped out of the top 15.
In the Light Flyweight division we've seen the removal of Takuma Inoue (previously #6) who has been re-ranked at Super Flyweight. Taking Inoue out has allowed a number of fighters to climb a place, including Yu Kimura (#7), Rene Patilano (#11) and Ryo Miyazaki (#13).
At Flyweight we've lost Kazuto Ioka (previously #7) following the announcement that he was going for the WBA title. The knock on of this is that Rey Megrino (#8), Froilan Saludar (#13) and Richie Mepranum (#14) have each moved up a place.
In the Super Flyweight division we've seen Toshiyuki Igarashi (#6) climb one place whilst Takuma Inoue (#7) has been re-ranked in this division. Takuma's ranking has seen a number of fighters drop a place, including Rex Tso (#9), Ryo Matsumoto (#11) and Malcolm Tunacao (#13), with Tunacao actually dropping behind fellow Filipino Arthur Villanueva (#12).
At Bantamweight we've seen recent world title challenger Suriyan Sor Rungvisai (#3) drop a place. Strangely Ryosuke Iwasa (#8) has burst into the WBC rankings, having mysteriously vanished not too long ago. Iwasa's re-emergence in the rankings has forced several fighters to drop a place including Petch Sor Chitpattana (#9), Ryo Akaho (#12) and Shohei Omori (#13).
The top of the Super Bantamweight division has seen a small shake up which has resulted in Shingo Wake (#2) moving up a place whilst China's promising Qiu Xiao Jun (#3) has moved up a couple of places. Another mover here was Shun Kubo (#14) who climbed a single place.
At Lightweight we've seen Masayoshi Nakatani (#10) and Yoshitaka Kato (#13) both drop a single place.
In the Light Welterweight division we've seen Heavy handed OPBF champion Keita Obara (#13) drop a couple of places.
At Middleweight we've seen Japanese Olympic champion Ryota Murata (#7) move up a place.
There was no change with an Asian fighter at Featherweight, Super Featherweight, Welterweight or Light Middleweight. Whilst no division above Middleweight features an Asian ranked in the top 15.
