Ring Magazine Heavyweight Rankings: Anthony Joshua Rises

Anthony Joshua...
Anthony Joshua...anxious about the rematch...

Anthony Joshua has climbed up Ring Magazine’s rankings after his devastating victory over Francis Ngannou.

AJ wasted no time in the ring against the MMA superstar as he secured a brutal second-round knockout earlier this month.

The former heavyweight champion sent his rival to the canvas in the opening round and then hit the deck again before his lights were put out with a powerful right hand.

Joshua has now won four bouts in a row against Ngannou, Otto Wallin, Robert Helenius and Jermaine Franklin after his back-to-back defeats to Oleksandr Usyk.

His strong recent performances have seen him climb up from third to second in the Ring Magazine heavyweight rankings.

Joseph Parker has also risen up the list following his two huge victories over Deontay Wilder and Zhilei Zhang.

Tyson Fury laughed at the new rankings, saying on social media: “I’m the craziest MF out there.

“I gave up Ring belt so I could win it three times.”

Oleksandr Usyk maintains the Ring magazine title, having first secured the crown in his second win over AJ in 2022.
