Graphic Showing The Top Ten Heavyweight Boxer's Head-To-Head Record Is Fascinating
Anthony Joshua has the best head to head record between heavyweight boxing's top ten fighters by quite a distance.
A reddit user has created a graphic which features Ring Magazine's top ten's results against one another.
It's Joshua who has the most impressive record, with four wins and one loss.
The Brit's only loss came in the summer of 2019 when he suffered a shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr.
However, the duo faced off in a rematch last month and Joshua avenged the loss by regaining his WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO titles.
His three other wins came against Dillian Whyte, Joseph Parker and Alexander Povetkin respectively
It's interesting to see considering Joshua has been criticised in the past for running from big fights.
Deontay Wilder's record is second best after his two victories over Luis Ortiz.
White, Ruiz Jr and Parker all have one victory respectively.
Tyson Fury has only had one fight against the top 10 and it was the controversial draw with Wilder back in 2018.

Many believed that Fury should have been judged as victor over the 'Bronze Bomber' after a thrilling twelve rounds.
However, the bout was ruled a draw and both men remain undefeated.

Their highly anticipated rematch is set for February 22 and it's safe to say the world will be watching.
Another man who'll be watching is Joshua.
'AJ' has made it clear that he's keen to face-off with both Fury and Wilder in the future.
Joshua stunningly offered to help Fury prepare for his blockbuster rematch with Wilder and was even willing to travel to America to help his heavyweight rival.
Fury wasted no time in responding and accepted his offer, but Joshua admitted his regret at going public with the offer.
It sets up a very interesting year for heavyweight boxing and it's top competitors.
Who do you think is the best heavyweight boxer in the world right now?
