Default WBO 'october' rankings - Hawk appears

anyone check the WBO rankings this week? latest set dated 15th october.
a certain Mr S Hawk has surfaced at #15 and the guy that beat him before Clev (Eleider Alvarez) has gone up to 14.
did anyone check the same rankings the day Hawk got announced?
i did and tweeted that Alvarez was at 15 and wondered how WBO were standing by their edict that Clevs opponent had to be top 15 for match to be sanctioned.
guess now we know!
anyone care to take a punt at who might have been kicked off the top 15 list to let Hawk in?

We should make a list of these magical appearances just before (or in this case after) a "titlefight".

Yes I agree, it would be interesting to see how certain fighters mysteriously appear out of nowhere. Problem is that this will cause ESB to get another threatening letter/email and the forum will be closed down again.

i tweeted this on 5th november

"guy [hawk] lost to an 8-0 colombian last fight. the colombian is wbo ranked 15. so much for opponent needing to be ranked"

and this on same day

"WBO - "next opponent MUST be ranked top 15" - unless he just been beaten by #15. then he ok? #farce #cleverly #hawk"

the only 3 possible explanations i can think of are

a) i misread the rankings and alvarez was actually 14 and hawk was 15 and i just didnt see hawk's name there
b) i was reading the september rankings and the october rankings werent available on the wbo website as at 5th november
c) the october rankings have been retrospectively updated (because they say they are as at 15th october)

now i havent defamed anyone here or made any unfounded accusations. i'm just pointing out what appears to me, based on what i saw and what i wrote in response at the time, to be an anomaly.

just making y'all aware!
