NDO/VNA - Female boxer Nguyen Thi Thu Nhi moved up by one spot to the fourth place in the world’s mini-flyweight ranking, according to the latest ranking by boxing's official record keeper BoxRec.

With a cumulative point of 15.32, Nhi is among four boxers earning 3.5-star level in this weight class.

She made history for becoming Vietnam's first World Boxing Organisation champion after winning a WBO belt on October 23 in Ansan, the Republic of Korea.
