Tyson Fury is a notable absentee from Ring Magazine’s latest updated top ten heavyweight rankings.
The WBC heavyweight world champion is widely regarded as the best boxer in his division, but at present does not find himself among the top ten list.
Instead, Oleksandr Usyk leads the way as Ring champion, with Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder close behind him.
The reason for this is because Fury vacated the Ring Magazine heavyweight belt while claiming he was retired back in August.
As a result, the Ring’s crown was on the line for the Usyk vs Joshua rematch and the Ukrainian took it home with him.
Although Fury has now confirmed suspicions that he’s not really retired after all, Ring have not yet decided to re-rank him.
It appears this will not happen until he fights again on December 3.
For the time being then, the Ring Magazine heavyweight top ten is as follows…
