Fans Think Tyson Fury Will Be Number One Heavyweight In 2020

Fans have voted Tyson Fury as the man they think will be king of heavyweight boxing at the end of 2020, with the Gypsy King beating Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

The heavyweight division is in an exciting place with the three top men leading the way and a talented chasing group just behind them.

There's a lot of debate about who is the best in the world with Joshua and Wilder holding all the belts between them and Fury being the lineal champ.

In the next year we're hoping to definitively find out who is the best in the world and fans have been voting on Sky Sports and reckon it'll be Fury.

Fury has the chance to really prove that he's the best early in the year when he takes on Wilder for the second time on February 22nd.

The first fight, last December, was a controversial draw with Wilder twice knocking Fury down but the Brit generally dominating throughout the fight.

When the Gypsy King hit the canvas in the 12th round the fight looked over but he somehow rose to his feet and actually dominated the rest of the round.

After AJ won back three versions of the world title earlier this month, beating Andy Ruiz Jr in their rematch, there is hope that whoever is victorious in the second Wilder vs Fury fight will take on the 2012 Olympic champion to decide the division's best.

The chances of that happening are slim though. It's been confirmed that Wilder and Fury have already agreed to have a third fight, no matter the outcome of the second, in the summer.

After that Dillian Whyte is the WBC's number one contender and has been told he'll get a title shot in February 2021.

Also in the frame for a world title shot is Oleksandr Usyk. He moved up to heavyweight from cruiserweight as WBA champion which gives him the chance to go for the heavyweight title.

The Ukrainian could find himself fighting for a vacated belt if AJ gives up the title to fight IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev.

Who do you think will end 2020 as the top of the division?
