    TYSON FURY has been left out of the Ring Magazine's pound-for-pound rankings following his retirement from boxing. The Gypsy King signed off his career with a brutal knockout victory over Dillian Whyte last month as he successfully defended his WBC heavyweight title. 1Canelo Alvarez tops the Ring Magazine's top ten pound-for-pound fighters Fury, 33, declared that he promised his wife Paris that he would hang up his gloves after the Wembley showdown. He said: "I promised my wife Paris and I meant it. I had the trilogy with Deontay Wilder and she wanted me to retire then. “But then I was offered this and I owed it to the fans and everyone at home in the UK. “I have to be a man of my word so this might be the last fight.

    OLEKSANDR USYK shot up the world heavyweight leaderboard after his stunning victory over Anthony Joshua last year. Ring Magazine's rankings of the world's top fighters now has the Ukrainian second to only Tyson Fury. 2 Both stars hold world title belts, with Fury putting keeping WBC crown after defeating Deontay Wilder last time out. The respected rankings have the Gypsy King ahead of Usyk, owing to his ownership of The Ring's official belt. Fury, 33, also boasts a 31-0-1 record and a more extensive history of heavyweight fights, with only Wilder battling to a draw in the original match-up of their trilogy series. While Usyk, 35, has only fought three times in this category having dominated at cruiserweight. His storming performance against Joshua in Tottenham launched the southpaw from tenth in rankings to the position of top challenger to Fury's throne.

    GEORGE KAMBOSOS JR is the king of the lightweights at the start of 2022. The unbeaten WBA, IBF, WBO and The Ring title holder tops the Ring Magazine's lightweight rankings. 2Kambosos Jr sits top of the mouthwatering lightweight division at the start of 2022Credit: GETTY IMAGES 2Lopez and Lomachenko are hot on Kambosos Jr's heels Kambosos Jr, of course, took the belts off the man who's behind him in the list, Teofimo Lopez.

    TYSON FURY has been named in Ring Magazine's latest top ten pound-for-pound rankings. But four of the seven judges disagree with the Gypsy King's inclusion. 2Tyson Fury has made it into Ring Magazine's top 10 pound-for-pound rankings despite resistance from some judges Fury has taken Teofimo Lopez's spot after the American's shock defeat to George Kambosos. The Gypsy King made light work of Deontay Wilder the last two times the pair have met which has seen him recognised. But the majority of the judging panel did not agree he should be there - despite him holding the WBC and Ring Magazine heavyweight titles. Adam Abramowitz suggested Fury be given the No 10 spot. He said: “The Ring has had heavyweights in its pound-for-pound before and I don’t subscribe to the theory that a heavyweight can’t be in P4P discussions. But Tom Gray - who does subscribe the 'no heavyweights' rule - wanted other names thrown in the hat.

    TYSON FURY has been snubbed from the Ring Magazine's pound-for-pound rankings despite his epic win over Deontay Wilder. 'Gypsy King' Fury took down Wilder for the second time in their epic trilogy fight in Las Vegas last weekend. 2 2Unbeaten heavyweight champ Tyson Fury pounded Deontay Wilder to another defeat last weekend but still didn't make the P4P top 10Credit: AP But that wasn't enough for the 33-year-old WBC champion to enter the top ten on the Ring Magazine's list. The only heavyweight to feature is Oleksandr Usyk, who comes in at No 2 after his dismantling of Anthony Joshua last month. The Ukrainian wrestled the WBA, IBF and WBO belts from AJ with his unanimous points victory at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. That victory put the former cruiserweight king and now heavyweight champ behind only Canelo Alvarez on the P4P rankings. Fury might have to beat Usyk in a mega unification bout before he gets his place in the top ten. Canelo, meanwhile, is back in the ring next month against Caleb Plant at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas....
    OLEKSANDR USYK has jumped to second in Ring Magazine's top ten pound-for-pound list after victory over Anthony Joshua. It leaves only Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez ahead of the new unified heavyweight champion. 1 Usyk had been in fourth, with Japanese Naoya Inoue, 28, second and American Terence Crawford, 34, third. But the unbeaten pair have now dropped down a place each to make way for Usyk, 34, following his 12 round masterclass against AJ. Still, it has not been enough to knock off boxing's top attraction Canelo, who has won titles in FOUR divisions, and currently reigns at super-middleweight. Scotland's Josh Taylor, 30, is as high as fifth, above 27-0 Texan Errol Spence Jr, 31, who has not fought since September 2020. Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn agreed that only Canelo deserves to be ahead of masterful southpaw Usyk in the mythical rankings. Asked where he ranks, Hearn said: “Two, after Canelo.

    TABLE-TOPPING Tyson Fury is joined by two Brit rivals in Ring Magazine's latest list of the world's best 11 heavyweights. The Gypsy King, Anthony Joshua and American Deontay Wilder retain their respective one-two-three rankings. 3WBC king Tyson Fury is out on his own in the rankings after stopping third-placed Deontay Wilder in their rematch 18 months agoCredit: Getty 3The Gypsy King is understandably focused on new baby daughter Athena's recovery as Ring Magazine releases its new rankings list And Brixton Body Snatcher Whyte is up to fourth, with fellow Londoner Joe Joyce sneaking into the final spot. Unbeaten WBC king Fury would cement his position if he repeats an emphatic February 2020 victory over Wilder in their trilogy bout in two months' time. But Whyte is ready to step in against the big-hitting Yank if Fury pulls out on compassionate grounds. Fury, 33, remains by his new baby Athena's bedside after she came off ventilators and out of intensive care. Athena, who is Fury and wife Paris's sixth child, is recovering, having "died for three minutes" until being resuscitated. Most read in Boxing'DIFFICULT' Usyk told Anthony Joshua clash...
    SCOTLAND'S Josh Taylor has taken top spot in Ring Magazine's latest super-lightweight rankings. He edged out Regis Prograis and Jose Ramirez, while American Gervonta Davis only came in sixth. 4Josh Taylor takes top spot in Ring Magazine's latest super-lightweight rankings The Scottish fighter, 30, knocked Ramirez down twice on his way to a narrow 114-112 win on the scorecards in Las Vegas in May. Taylor's win saw him pick up the WBC and WBO titles to go alongside the WBA, IBF, and Ring magazine titles he already held. And now he has another feather to add to his increasingly heavy cap as he tops the latest Ring Magazine rankings for super-lightweights. Jose Zepeda, Viktor Postol and Arnold Barboza complete the top five. And Davis only makes it to sixth. Floyd Mayweather masterminded Davis’ win over Mario Barrios to keep up his magnificent KO record across three weight classes in June. The former super-feather world champ, 26, ventured up to super-lightweight to take on the 26-0 challenge who was six inches taller. After dropping Barrios twice in the eighth and getting the job done...
    OLEKSANDR USYK remains the only heavyweight included on the Ring Magazines's top ten pound-for-pound rankings. With Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury yet to fight this year, neither have had the chance to climb into the mythical ratings list. 1 And with none of the top ten suffering a setback, it means the heavyweight champions are still looking on from the outside. But with Joshua, 31, and Fury, 32, signed to fight this summer, it offers the perfect opportunity for one of them to break into the Ring's top ten. Currently, only Usyk, 34, represents the blue ribband division, due to his 18-0 record and prior reign as undisputed cruiserweight king. The Ukrainian also has two heavyweight wins to his name, and stands as Joshua's WBO mandatory challenger. Canelo Alvarez, 30, sits atop of the pack, having cemented his legacy in December by winning unified super-middleweight belts. He defended them against Avni Yildirim, 29, in February and now unifies against WBO champ Billy Joe Saunders, 31, in May. The Mexican superstar already has...
    ANTHONY JOSHUA has moved up to No2 in Ring Magazine's heavyweight rankings - just underneath champion Tyson Fury. AJ received the elevation after emphatically knocking out Kubrat Pulev, 39, to close out 2020. 1Ring Magazine's heavyweight rankings The win sets the WBA, IBF and WBO champion up with a mammoth undisputed title decider against long-time rival Fury next year. ` The Gypsy King, 32, won his WBC title against American Deontay Wilder, 35, in February. And as the pair were ranked No1 and No2 with the Ring Magazine, the vacant belt was on the line. It meant Fury had become the first heavyweight to win the title since he vacated it following his upset over Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. Despite Wilder's first career defeat, he has only dropped down to No2. Alexander Povetkin, 41, slots in at No3 following his stunning knockout over Dillian Whyte, 32, in the summer. The pair were due to rematch in November but Povetkin's battle against coronavirus has backdated the fight. Most read in BoxingPicturedSWEET MELODIENeymar linked...
    JOSH TAYLOR has become the first Scot to feature on the Ring Magazine's top ten pound-for-pound list. But both Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua were nowhere to be seen in the new rankings. 10 Artur Beterbiev, who has not fought since unifying the light-heavyweight division in October 2019, has been KO'd off the pile by Taylor. Vasiliy Lomachenko's shock defeat to Teofimo Lopez shook up the mythical ratings, and allowed Canelo Alvarez more breathing space at the top. Here is Ring Magazine’s updated list of their top ten boxers... 1. Canelo Alvarez - 53-1-2 (36 KO) middleweight & super-middleweight champion Mexican superstar Canelo has quickly taken over as boxing’s biggest star since former foe Floyd Mayweather walked away from the sport. With only a sole loss - to Mayweather in 2013 aged 23 - he has gone on to rule from super-welterweight all the way to heavyweight. But a contentious draw and win against rival Gennady Golovkin had doubters questioning Canelo’s invincibility with a trilogy bout yet to take place. Canelo would snub a...
    VASILIY LOMACHENKO has plummeted to seventh in Ring Magazine’s latest top ten pound-for-pound fighter rankings. But both Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua were nowhere to be seen in the new list. 10Vasiliy Lomachenko has dropped to seventh in Ring Magazine’s latest top ten P4P rankingsCredit: PA:Press Association 10The latest Ring Magazine P4P rankings Ukrainian Lomachenko, 32, suffered a wide points defeat in Las Vegas against Teofimo Lopez as judges scored the bout 116-112, 119-109 and 117-111 in favour of the 23-year-old. He  bizarrely claimed he thought he did enough to win despite being outclassed by the American at the MGM Grand. And that setback has seen the star drop five places from second in the P4P rankings, with his rival climbing into the top ten a place above him. Canelo Alvarez had already dethroned Lomachenko as the world's best boxer after becoming a four-weight champion last November and keeps top spot. The Mexican superstar beat WBO light-heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev in Las Vegas to cement his legacy in the list of the sport's immortals. And the rest of Boxing...
    TYSON FURY has re-affirmed his position at the top of Ring Magazine's official heavyweight rankings. The Gypsy King is the proud owner of that belt, so naturally sits at the top of the tree. 5 And there are no surprises who is ranked as the No1 contender - Fury's big Brit rival Anthony Joshua. The pair have agreed to two fights next year - but they are still to thrash out the finer details. Fury has told Joshua to “grow a pair” and set up the world heavyweight unification fight in December if his Deontay Wilder rematch is KO’d. 5Tyson Fury is the Gyspy King AND the Ring Magazine kingCredit: PA:Press Association 5Anthony Joshua would become Ring Magazine champion if he beat Tyson FuryCredit: Getty Images The WBC champ delivered the brutal blow on BT Sport after watching Daniel Dubois’ second-round takedown of Dutchman Ricardo Snijders.
