Ring Magazine top 10 heavyweight boxers revealed but fans are all confused over who is No1

OLEKSANDR USYK remains atop Ring Magazine’s heavyweight rankings – leaving fans confused.

Usyk currently holds the Ring Magazine belt having won it against Anthony Joshua in 2021 thus securing his place at the top.

But some supporters spoke out to claim it should be Tyson Fury sitting ahead of the masterful Ukrainian.

One confused fan said: “How is Usyk No 1?”

Another added: “Looks about right but if fury and usyk fights #1 and #2 flipping.”

One argued: “Strange when you know top of the list would be koed by number 2.”

Elsewhere, former WBC champion Deontay Wilder, 37, is the second ranked contender with Joshua, 33, one place behind.

Those standings could change if the pair manage to get a deal over the line to fight each other.

Zhilei Zhang, 40, is fourth following his April win over sixth-placed Joe Joyce, 37, and the two rematch this Saturday.

Andy Ruiz Jr, 34, is fifth despite not fighting since last September, beating No7 ranked Luis Ortiz, 44.


Joseph Parker, 31, is No8 with Filip Hrgovic, also 31, at No9.

American Jared Anderson, 23, breaks into the top ten for the first time after Dillian Whyte, 35, dropped out.

Whyte was due to rematch Joshua in August but a failed drug test saw him pulled out and now fighting for his career and reputation.
