The rankings have been updated for June. The new format should be a lot easier to read. Notable updates are:
- Amanat Ruenroeng drops in rank due to his loss to John Casimero.
- The Cruiserweight division gets a big shake-up after the numerous bouts over the last few weeks.
- The Super Welterweight division starts to settle out, with Lara and the Charlo brothers taking the top-3 spots.
