Lightweight contender Caroline Dubois had another impressive performance in a unanimous decision victory over Miranda Reyes on Saturday night. The fight was on the Joshua Buatsi-Adam Azeez undercard at the OVO Arena Wembley in London.

Dubois (9-0, 5 KOs) won every round against Reyes (100-90, 100-90 and 100-90), and has only lost six of the last 28 rounds she's fought. Dubois moves up to the No. 2 spot in the division, just behind undisputed champion Katie Taylor, who is expected to face Chantelle Cameron in a trilogy fight this summer.

On Friday in Orlando, Florida, welterweight contender Maricela Cornejo defeated Kandi Wyatt by unanimous decision with scorecards of 79-73, 78-74 and 78-74. Cornejo (18-6, 7 KOs) had competed at middleweight and super middleweight for most of her career, and is now 2-0 in her last two fights after moving down two divisions to welterweight. She takes the No. 5 spot at 147 pounds.

Rankings will be updated every Tuesday. They'll be based on recent bouts, head-to-head competition and the quality of opponent. As with almost everything, until fighters square off against one another, there is a layer of subjectivity to it. Fighters who haven't fought in 18 months and don't have a fight scheduled will be removed from the rankings until they fight again.
