Oleksandr Usyk became Ring magazine heavyweight champion with a terrific victory over Anthony Joshua in their rematch in Saudi Arabia in August 2022.

The Ukrainian superstar improved his perfect professional record to 20-0 with a split-decision success over Joshua in Jeddah, and retained his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles in the process.

Usyk also claimed the vacant Ring title, which had been vacated just a few days earlier by WBC and lineal heavyweight king Tyson Fury.

AJ remains #1 behind Usyk

As Fury drops out of the Ring rankings and Usyk rises to champion status, Joshua takes the #1 spot with American star Deontay Wilder at 2. Then comes New Zealander Joseph Parker as he moves up to 3.

Dillian Whyte is #4 with Andy Ruiz Jr 5 and Luis Ortiz 6. Then comes Britain’s unbeaten Joe Joyce and IBF mandatory challenger Filip Hrgovic.

Talented ‘Cuban Flash’ Frank Sanchez is #9 while the top 10 is rounded off by Chinese giant Zhilei Zhang after his defeat by Hrgovic in their IBF final eliminator last month.
