We did some housecleaning after a slow weekend, as three fighters were removed from Top 10s because of inactivity or a move up in weight.
Tim Bradley (No. 6 last week) and Amir Khan (No. 7 last week) drop out of the welterweight ratings because of inactivity. Bradley hasn’t fought since he lost to Manny Pacquiao in April of last year and has no fight scheduled; Khan last fought in May of last year, when he was stopped by Canelo Alvarez, and has nothing set.
They were replaced in the 147-pound Top 10 by Lucas Matthysse and Luis Collazo, who enter at Nos. 9 and 10 respectively.
Matthysse returned from a 19-month layoff and stopped Emmanuel Taylor in his first fight as a full-fledged welterweight last month. Collazo bounced back from a KO loss to Keith Thurman by stopping Sammy Vasquez in February.
In the flyweight division, Amnat Ruenroeng (No. 4 last week) drops out because he has moved up in weight. He is replaced by Andrew Selby, who enters at No. 10.
Note: RING heavyweight and lineal champion Tyson Fury hasn’t fought in more than 18 months, which means he could be stripped of his title, but the Editorial Board has not made a final decision on his fate. That is expected to come soon.
There were no other changes in the RING ratings this week.
