Divisional rankings: Kali Reis keeps her place at 140; Jessica Camara makes top 5 even after loss

Kali Reis, left, defeated Jessica Camara by split decision to unify two junior welterweight titles. Ed Mulholland/Matchroom

For much of Friday night in New Hampshire, it looked like there might be another upset in women's boxing -- another chance for belts to change hands and for rankings to get all sorts of shaken up. But for the second time in as many fights, Kali Reis' won a close fight to retain her WBA title and win the vacant WBO belt.

For Reis, it sets up a fight in 2022 for the undisputed junior welterweight championship against WBC and IBF titleholder Chantelle Cameron as part of a tournament-type model Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn put together that more divisions in boxing -- men's and women's -- should look to in an effort to unify belts in the sport.

For Camara, though, the showing didn't go unnoticed. The Canadian won the fight on one of the three scorecards and the way she fought showed Reis she has some holes in her strategy that she'll need to shore up before facing Cameron. Camara enters the rankings at 140 pounds despite the loss, replacing Diana Prazak in the No. 5 position in one of the deepest divisions in women's boxing.

Both Camara and Prazak fought Reis in their last fight and while both lost, Camara had the better showing -- Prazak lost by majority decision. If we're going to play matchmaker, a Camara-Prazak fight lined up next might be an interesting one, and one that could vault the winner into a conversation to fight the Cameron-Reis winner down the line after the 140-pound belts are all in the hands of one fighter.

Rankings will be updated every Tuesday. They'll be based on recent bouts, head-to-head competition and 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 two years and don't have a fight scheduled will be removed from the rankings until they fight again.
