Absolutely no movement anywhere in the rankings this week, as it was a holiday weekend in the States and there was not a truly major fight anywhere in the world, with only a couple of ranked fighters in action. No. 7 junior middleweight Lukas Konecny, No. 7 lightweight Jorge Linares, and No. 7 heavyweight Tony Thompson all won. Lucky sevens. Ha ha ha ha. Ehhh.
This weekend doesn't have a ton of ranked action either, but what's out there is important. The super middleweight division will be especially shaken up a little, as No. 3 and No. 4 ranked Carl Froch and Glen Johnson square off on Saturday night, and inactive Mikkel Kessler will return to the top ten should he win as expected in Denmark on Saturday afternoon in his return to the ring.
