Anthony Joshua Back in Title Hunt! Moves Up Ring Magazine Rankings

Anthony Joshua Back in Title Hunt! Moves Up Ring Magazine Rankings.

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

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.

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

He is ready to put that belt as well as his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO titles on the line as he faces Fury on May 18.

The £100million ‘Fight of the Century’ was initially set to take place on February 17, only for the Gypsy King to pull out as he sustained a nasty cut above his eye.
