The newspaper said it was a close contest between the 'Bronze Bomber' and Fury for the No 1 spot in the rankings, but they called Wilder the "most in-form heavyweight" in the world.

The Metro added: "Two wins and two chilling knockouts in 2019 have many people jumping off the fence and pitching their tent in camp Wilder, especially in light of Fury's last performance [against Otto Wallin]."
