🚨 Tyson Fury drops below Anthony Joshua in latest rankings following defeat to Oleksandr Usyk in undisputed clash

Posted by

The World Boxing Council has released its most recent heavyweight rankings.

In a highly anticipated match last month, Tyson Fury’s attempt to become the undisputed heavyweight champion fell short as he was defeated by Oleksandr Usyk in a split-decision verdict.

This loss resulted in the relinquishment of his undefeated record and the WBC heavyweight title to the Ukrainian boxer.

Consequently, Fury has dropped to the second position in the latest rankings.

Meanwhile, his long-standing rival, Anthony Joshua, has secured the number one spot after achieving four consecutive victories, including a stunning knockout of MMA star Francis Ngannou.

Agit Kabayel, who has stopped contenders Arslanbek Makhmudov and Frank Sanchez in his last two outings, is ranked third ahead of Zhilei Zhang.

Efe Ajagba, Jared Anderson and Martin Bakole are ranked fifth, sixth and seventh respectively.

Sanchez, Joe Joyce and Bakhodir Jalolov make up the top ten.

It is noteworthy that another former champion, Deontay Wilder, remains in the rankings despite suffering consecutive defeats against Joseph Parker and Zhilei Zhang.

β€˜The Gypsy King’ is scheduled to face Usyk in a rematch on December 21, while Joshua is likely to encounter Daniel Dubois in September at Wembley Stadium.
