The Top 10 Heavyweight Boxers In The World Latest Ranking by robosky02(m): 2:23pm On Aug 03, 2020
The top 10 heavyweight boxers in the world have been ranked by Ring Magazine with Tyson Fury coming on top of the rankings.

With the supposed agreement of Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury happening in 2021, and the third contest between Fury and Deontay Wilder, the heavyweight division has once again become the popular class in boxing.

Ring magazine have also named their other top 10 boxers in the division and with one of the biggest fights in the history of the heavyweight division not too far away, they have named Tyson Fury as their number one in the division.


Here is the top 10 according to Ring Magazine:

10. Kubrat Pulev

9. Oscar Rivas


8. Michael Hunter

7. Joseph Parker

6. Alexander Povetkin



5. Luis Ortiz

4. Deontay Wilder

3. Dillian Whyte

2. Anthony Joshua


1. Tyson Fury

The Gypsy King ends up top of the list, the only man unbeaten on this list after the controversial draw, then dominating win over Deontay Wilder in their fights in 2018 and 2020.

Anthony Joshua comes second place after regaining the WBA, IBF, IBO, and WBO titles after his shock loss to Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019. Joshua currently sits on a record of 23 wins and one loss, also with a staggering 87.5% KO percentage.

The most surprising placement is arguably Wilder coming fourth behind Whyte. The Bronze Bomber arguably has the second best record with a 42-1-1 record with the draw and loss only coming at the hands of Fury.

The former WBC champions held the belt for five years.

What do you think of this top 10 ranking of heavyweight champions?

there was a time that Joshua and wilder was on everyone's lips arguing for who the strongest is because both were on a winning streak...
there came fury that said he would beat both of them easily and people thought he was joking not until he took wilder to the cleaners..
with what i saw that day, all i can say is that this fury guy is the best heavy weight fighter for now..
but boxing is all about technique and maybe he studied wilder soo well after that their first fight that fury almost lost and the rematch was a easy win...
but i wont be surprised if AJ defeat fury and also if wilder gets to knock out AJ..
thats boxing for you, it do happens in football too..
can't wait for fury vs AJ and i know it wont be an easy win for whoever wins it...

I once wrote it on this platform that the WBC belt is the most important of all the belts and anyone who holds it is technically the best in the division. Some people were arguing with me. This ranking proves me right. AJ with his three belts is still second best

I always have this feeling that Tyson Fury will win in a fight with Anthony Joshua. Tyson Fury looks like a typical rough and rugged "agbero" while Anthony Joshua looks too "ajeboish" grin. Boxing is an agbero sport and Fury has got all the attributes of an agbero grin. I just hope Joshua keeps winning smiley

No man alive can defeat fury. Great chin and stamina with boxing IQ. but limited power. but if you cant KO him he wins on points most times lol
Joshua- no stamina and limited movement and average chin
Whyte- Dodgy chin and gra gra boxing iq with a bad ass left hook
Wilder- all power with limited boxing IQ and average chin.
