Is this still happening? I remembered these rankings earlier today and I thought I'd check out any updates. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have been updated in a while. There's no record of Jamie McDonnell's or Kell Brook's latest wins, even though they both fought in October, and even world champions like Froch haven't been updated.

Any update, guys?

their rankings have nosedived
they kept pac high in the rankings after marquez 3 and they even named that fight robbery of the year but then they didn't drop pac after the bradley fight as they said it was a robbery
they dropped peterson and berto for failing drug test yet aren't dropping chavez for failing
they made the rule to drop fighters for drug test a week before khan/garcia so they could drop peterson and make sure gbp fighters khan/garcia could fight for the belt
they decided to make yoan pablo hernadez/cunningham for their belt as they said huck had moved up to hw even though he said he was coming back down while they kept jmm ranked at lw for ages when he was fighting at ww.
they have the #1 P4P spot VACANT while floyd and pac are joined 2
they also changed the rules so that technically is the number3 ranked fighter fights the 5th it could be for the title and alot of their ranking board quit
if your post comments questioning their decisions their editors insult you

also the fact they told they told their doctor she was no longer allowed write about stuff like insurance coverage for catastrophic injuries suffered by fighters and later fired her days after her organisation broke the news about petersons test is suspect

Is this stuff for the ESB or TBR tikle? I hope their belt looks better than the ibo/wbu/iba garbage. Also, the names of weight classes are typed all wrong.
