Tyson Fury restores P4P ranking, sits below Canelo and Oleksandr Uysk

World Boxing News
Tyson Fury Pound for Pound Heavyweight

On Saturday night, two-time world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury restored his pound for pound ranking with a battling performance in Las Vegas.

“The Gypsy King” went toe-to-toe with one of the most fearsome punchers of all time, emerging with a second stoppage win over career-rival Deontay Wilder.

With the triumph, Fury ended eighteen months of inactivity that usually would have meant a lost rating altogether. But due to Covid, WBN relaxed the P4P rules to see all fighters given ample time to compete and remain on the list during the pandemic.

Therefore, Fury climbed back to the number three spot he possessed at the beginning of the year.

TYSON FURY DROP

Previously, Tyson Fury had dropped as low as seven as those around him fought, with Naoya Inoue and Oleksandr Usyk just two of those who overhauled the Briton.

Reclaiming his place as the number one heavyweight on the planet did not mean Fury could overtake the Ukrainian, though.

Due to Usyk’s undisputed reign at cruiserweight and subsequent unified victory over Anthony Joshua in the top division, Usyk stays above Fury on the P4P list.

Tyson Fury is the leading fighter at the weight until any man, including Usyk, can take the honor from him.

His first of any physical title, the Wilder defense also saw Fury move from three stars to four on the P4P rating system.
