Former world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has jumped above Tyson Fury into first place in the latest WBC heavyweight rankings with the ‘Gypsy King’ now ranked second, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.

Fury lost his WBC heavyweight title when Oleksandr Usyk beat him in May’s undisputed clash in Saudi Arabia.

Having been previously ranked as champion, Fury has now fallen into the challenger pecking order and has been placed as the second-ranked heavyweight contender by the WBC.

The organisation has placed him below long-term British-Nigerian rival Joshua, who sits behind Usyk, whom he has lost to twice.
