Boxing P4P rankings revealed after Fury vs Usyk with another MAJOR change at the top

The results of boxing’s P4P rankings jury are in, and we have a THIRD new king in the space of the last month – astonishing times.

Going into May, it was welterweight superstar Terence Crawford (40-0) heading the rankings from the boxing bible that is Ring magazine.

But then on May 6, the brilliant Japanese super-bantamweight star Naoya Inoue (27-0) claimed top spot by successfully defending his belts with a brilliant demolition job on Luis Nery in front of a soldout Tokyo Dome.

On Saturday night in Saudi we got the Trifecta as Oleksandr Usyk ascended the throne of P4P king after becoming the sport’s first undisputed world heavyweight champion in 25 years.

Usyk is boxing’s NEW P4P king

Usyk outpointed Tyson Fury in a thrilling encounter, turning round a fight he appeared to be losing conclusively seven rounds in. A big second half – including a crucial knockdown in Round 9 – saw him pull out a wafer-thin victory by split decision.

So not only does Usyk now hold the WBC, WBA, IBF, WBO, Ring, lineal and undisputed heavyweight titles, he now owns the title of P4P king. The former undisputed cruiserweight champion has ruled all in two divisions – quite incredible.
