Tyson Fury has been ranked as the best heavyweight boxer in the world by Ring Magazine ahead of Anthony Joshua.

Fury won the WBC and 'The Ring' heavyweight titles after knocking out American Deontay Wilder back in February and has dethroned his British rival at the top of the division.

The 'Gypsy King' is also scheduled to face Joshua in two heavyweight battles in 2021 in one of the highly-anticipated fights in British boxing history.

Promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed the news in June of this year, thought the coronavirus pandemic has meant that both Fury and Joshua's 2020 schedules have been put on hold. 

In the Ring Magazine's rankings, Joshua has slipped down to second place after losing his unbeaten boxing streak in 2019.
