Five ranked fighters were in action this week, all five were victorious, but only two found themselves moving up in their respective divisions.
#2 ranked middleweight, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., took a dominant TKO 7 victory over Andy Lee, but while he closed the gap between himself and #1 ranked Sergio Martinez, he remains a close second.
Tomasz Adamek, with his decision win over Eddie Chambers Saturday night moves from #4 to #3, barely surpassing Alexander Povetkin for the time being.
Middleweight Martin Murray made the biggest move this week, jumping from #9 to #6 in the close bottom half of the 160 lb. rankings with Saturday’s decision win over Karim Achour.
Jason Litzau (#8 super featherweight) and Carlos Cuadras (#10 super flyweight) were bought victorious, but fought outside of their divisions, so no movement was possible.
