Tyson Fury is now on the top of ” The Ring magazine” rankings after Anthony Joshua’s defeat by Andy Ruiz Jr.
Fury moves up one place to the top of the tree, closely followed by world champions – Deontay Wilder and Ruiz.
Dillian Whyte rounds off the top five ahead of his fight against Oscar Rivas next month.

Currently “The Ring magazine” belt is vacant.
The organisation declined to put the belt on the line for the Brit’s clash with Wilder last December, but could do so if the pair meet again as planned next spring.
Fury must first beat Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas on June 15 following Wilder’s first-round KO of Dominic Breazeale last month.
