Top 10 Heavyweight Boxers Ranked From ‘King’ To ‘Trash’
The undefeated Tyson Fury has climbed to the top of the mountain to be crowned the king of the heavyweight boxing division.
SPORTbible used the Ring Magazine's rankings for the top ten heavyweights and separated them into five separate tiers using TierMaker.
Ranging from 'King' to 'Trash,' the 'Gypsy King' came out at the top of the pile ahead of Deontay Wilder and Andy Ruiz Jr.
WBC champ Wilder finished behind the Brit superstar alongside Ruiz, who produced a stunning upset against Anthony Joshua last month to claim the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles.
Speaking of the previously undefeated 'AJ,' the Brit has fallen into the average category alongside WBC interim champ Dillian Whyte and Adam Kownacki.
Luis Ortiz and Joseph Parker have avoided falling into the trash tier, with Alexander Povetkin and Kubrat Pulev both having the unfortunate pleasure of being the worst-ranked boxers in our TierMaker.
Posted below are the top ten heavyweights featured in the TierMaker.
King: Tyson Fury
Great: Deontay Wilder and Andy Ruiz Jr
Average: Anthony Joshua, Dillian Whyte and Adam Kownacki
Not Good: Luis Ortiz and Joseph Parker
Trash: Alexander Povetkin and Kubrat Pulev
Fury, 30, caused one of the biggest upsets in boxing when he dethroned Wladimir Klitschko from the top of the boxing world in 2015 and won the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, the Ring and lineal titles.
But the Brit's career took a slight tumble as he battled mental health issues, alcohol addiction and drug abuse.
Fury fought hard against his inner demons to make his sensational return to the boxing world in 2018 and shed stone after stone to regain his form.
The former unified champ picked up comfortable wins against Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta before his epic clash with Wilder last year.
While the match ended in a draw, many fans felt that Fury should have won the WBC championship and handed the 'Bronze Bomber' his first professional loss.
But Fury is eyeing up a rematch with Wilder in early 2020 in the hopes of beating the WBC kingpin.
Agree or disagree with Fury being at the top?
