This was a big week at Jr. Welterweight and, but for a little more luck with knockdown calls against Timothy Bradley, could be an even bigger year for Ruslan Provodnikov. After a career making defeat earlier this year, he followed with an even better win over the rugged Mike Alvarado.

There were concerns about how he would handle the altitude in Colorado. Provodnikov showed that in elevated air he soars even higher. It causes a shake-up at 140.

Inactivity also factors in for the first update in a few weeks. Several classes have fighters exit with no fights in a year or more and nothing scheduled. If anything was missed, dear readers, feel free to mention in the comments.

The Provodnikov results, and the rest for the sport, are reflected in this BoxingScene divisional ratings update.
