Updated this week, the new divisional rankings see one big name drop completely from the list due to inactivity, whilst others miss out due to losses suffered in recent weeks.

The biggest name of those removed from the ratings system, based on the Pound for Pound criteria, is former welterweight number one Keith Thurman.

'One Time' has been out of action since January 2017 and was recently stripped of his WBC title as he recovers from injury.

Selected others to drop from the Top 5 are Yunier Dorticos at cruiserweight, Sadam Ali at super-welter and Jessie Magdaleno at super-bantamweight.
