1. Tyson Fury

The Gypsy King ends up top of the list, the only man unbeaten on this list after the controversial draw, then dominating win over Deontay Wilder in their fights in 2018 and 2020.

Anthony Joshua comes second place after regaining the WBA, IBF, IBO, and WBO titles after his shock loss to Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019. Joshua currently sits on a record of 23 wins and one loss, also with a staggering 87.5% KO percentage.

The most surprising placement is arguably Wilder coming fourth behind Whyte. The Bronze Bomber arguably has the second best record with a 42-1-1 record with the draw and loss only coming at the hands of Fury.

The former WBC champions held the belt for five years.
