Tyson Fury shocked the world by defeating Wladimir Klitschko on Saturday in Germany. For the first time in what may feel for some like an eternity, there’s a new kingpin in the heavyweight division. As such, it was time to go back to the heavyweight rankings and look at just how much things have been shaken up.
Of course, by beating the man, Tyson Fury becomes the man. He’s the new heavyweight champion of the world. That much is not in question. Instead, we have to ask ourselves, how far does Klitschko fall in the rankings? As a challenger, and seeing the way he performed yesterday, would anybody think that version of Klitschko would defeat Deontay Wilder? So many other guys in the top 10 though are guys that Klitschko has resoundingly defeated.
So go ahead and take a look at our updated top 10 heavyweight division rankings to see where we opted to slot in Klitschko, and feel free to chime in with your thoughts in the comments below. Where should he be ranked, and why?
