WBC Top 40 Heavyweights (June 2018): Hughie Fury moves up / Eric Molina out

WBN 08/06/2018


The World Boxing Council recently released their updated ratings for this month with WBN taking a closer look at the movers and shakers from the top division. 

Largely remaining the same, the June list sees only Hughie Fury make a significant move up. 

Fury improves from 14th to 11th, whilst Eric Molina drops completely off the radar due to a suspension handed down by the UK Anti-Doping Agency dating back to 2016.

Dillian Whyte remains number one but recently pulled out of an eliminator with Luis Ortiz and could soon drop down the list.

Charles Martin is the new favorite to step in and face Ortiz for the chance to meet the winner of Deontay Wilder v Dominic Breazeale, which could be finalized in the next seven days.
