Tyson Fury is STILL the WBC heavyweight champion after stopping Deontay Wilder in a terrific trilogy fight in Las Vegas on October 9.

‘The Gypsy King’ (now 31-0-1) recovered from two fourth-round knockdowns to finally put the brave ‘Bronze Bomber’ away in the 11th round at T-Mobile Arena. It was a gripping showdown and one which cements the positions of both men in heavyweight folklore.

Next up for Fury is a title defence vs fellow Briton Dillian Whyte in front of a packed Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday April 23.

While Whyte is the interim champion, Wilder remains #1 on the WBC rankings courtesy of that stellar showing in defeat vs Fury. Next up at #2 is unbeaten Brit Joe Joyce, the highest position he’s ever held so far with this particular governing body. Joyce is even higher with the WBO right now.

Parker sitting pretty at #3

Kiwi Joseph Parker is sitting pretty at #3 after notching a pair of wins over Dereck Chisora to end a successful 2021. Then comes the fast-rising ‘Cuban Flash’ Frank Sanchez – who has a pro record of 20-0 and incredibly slick skills for a big man.

Andy Ruiz Jr and Luis Ortiz sit at #5 and #6 in the latest WBC list, while German Agit Kabayel, who almost got a shot at Fury in late 2020, is now #7.

The powerful Croat Filip Hrgovic, who appears to be set for an IBF final eliminator, is number 8 while Arslanbek Makhmudov is 9.

Hunter rounds off top 10

The current top 10 is rounded off by American enigma Michael Hunter, who has ability to burn but sometimes promises more than he delivers.

The picture of course could shake up massively after Fury vs Whyte in April. Whichever man prevails would potentially be set up for a unification battle vs the winner of Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua 2. But that bout of course is delayed currently due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

2016 Olympic Champion Tony Yoka of France, still unbeaten in the pros, is ranked 11 by the WBC and he is set to face Martin Bakole in Paris in May. Born-again Finn Robert Helenius is at 12 while fellow Scandinavian Otto Wallin (Sweden) is at 13.

The current WBC top 15 are completed by the aforementioned Bakole and the hard-hitting young Brit Daniel Dubois.
