According to latest WBC ranking, Anthony Joshua is number 6
Anthony Joshua, a British-Nigerian boxer, has climbed the WBC heavyweight rankings in anticipation of a potential all-British fight with Tyson Fury.
The British-Nigerian was moved up to No. 6 in the WBC heavyweight top 15 rankings as a result of two losses to Oleksandr Usyk, who won the WBA, IBF, and WBO titles in their rematch last month in Saudi Arabia by split decision.
Right now, Deontay Wilder and Andy Ruiz Jr. are in first and second place, respectively.
Following the announcement by Joshua’s management that they had agreed to Fury’s demands prior to a potential all-British superfight on December 3, this has happened.
“258 and Matchroom Boxing can confirm, on behalf of Anthony Joshua, that we accepted all terms provided to us by Tyson Fury’s side for a fight on December 3 last Friday,” according to a statement released by Joshua’s management business 258 MGT on Monday.
“It was decided to suspend all contact in light of the Queen’s demise.
A answer is required, please.
Frank Warren, Fury’s manager, responded right away.
“Contract will be with you very soon,” he tweeted in reply.
