Tony Bellew and Keith Thurman earn big wins


WBC cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew storms in at No 8, ejecting David Haye and taking his place after stopping him in 11 rounds at the weekend. This could be the first time we’ve ever had a world champion from one weight division be ranked in another.


Bellew leaves the rankings as he is now rated at heavyweight. Mairis Briedis enters at No 10.


Keith Thurman moves to No 2 after defeating Danny Garcia, who remains in fifth. Thurman moves above Tim Bradley, who was previously No 2 but does not have the recent form to remain there.


IBF champion Lee Selby defeats Andoni Gago in a non-title catchweight bout slightly above the featherweight limit, and so stays put at No 5.


Nawaphon Por Chokchai is destroyed by Juan Hernandez Navarrate and so is removed from the rankings and Navarrate takes his place at No 6. Yodmongkol Vor Saengthep comes in at No 1o.
