- Oversight correction time

Cotto should not have been removed on June 8th after he won the 160lb championship, because even though he will almost certainly defend it in his next fight, he did not announce a permanent intention to move up in weight before he challenged Sergio Martinez

He is re-entered at 4th until his next ring outing

- Ishe Smith exits as a result
