The Transnational Boxing Rankings Board was formed in October 2012 as a volunteer initiative to provide boxing with authoritative top-ten rankings, identify the singular world champion of every division by strict reasoning and common sense, and to insist on the sport’s reform. Board membership includes fifty respected boxing journalists and record keepers from around the world who are uncompromised by so-called sanctioning bodies and promoters.

Jr. Lightweight O’Shaquie Foster moves up from #5 to #3 over Robson Conceicao and Valdez after defeating Abraham Nova, albeit in a bout that is not a candidate for “Fight of the Year.” Eduardo Nunez ventured out of Mexico for the first time like Godzilla out of Japan. He stopped #7-ranked Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov in the 11th round and debuts in the Transnational Rankings at #7. Rakhimov is now #10.

Ruben Villa enters the Featherweight rankings at #10 due to #3-ranked Mauricio Lara’s exit. Lara is now campaigning at jr. lightweight. Villa’s only loss is to the #1-ranked contender in Lara’s new division –Emanual Navarrete. At Jr. Featherweight, Azat Hovannisyan (#8) is inactive and exits. Ramon Cardenas enters at #10.

Jr. Flyweight Sivenathi Nontshinga moves from #7 to #4 after stopping #4-ranked Adam Curiel, who drops to #5. Curiel knocked Nontshinga sideways and down with one shot in two rounds last November, which might explain the care Nontshinga took to fight out of a shell for most of the rematch. When he opened up in round 9, he hurt Curiel and then forced a stoppage in the 10th.
