James DeGale, Badou Jack and Gervonta Davis all caused changes to the rankings


James DeGale and Badou Jack battle to a thrilling draw in New York. As such, Badou Jack moves into No 2 behind DeGale. Anthony Dirrell (No 6) notches a win over an unraked opponent and so does not move.


Erislandy Lara remains in second after hammering unranked (and way past it) Yuri Foreman.


Thomas Dulorme (No 10) stays where he is with a routine win over an unranked foe.


Gervonta Davis storms into the rankings by bludgeoning IBF champion Jose Pedraza. Pedraza was ranked 10th, but due to the impressive showing of Davis, the youngster enters at No 6.


Juan Carlos Payano – ranked third – stays where he is after beating an opponent not ranked in the top 10.
