    CHAMP: Fury
    1. Wilder
    2. Ruiz
    3. Sanchez
    4. Helenius
    5. Makhmudov
    6. Joshua
    7. Whyte
    8. Wallin
    9. Bakole
    10. Kossobutskiy
    11. Ortiz
    12. Hunter
    13. Chisora
    14. Hrgovic
    15. Ajagba

    Thoughts:

    - Joshua enters at #6, potentially in anticipation of Fury-Joshua?
    - Ruiz moves up to #2 after beating Ortiz, as expected in anticipation of Wilder-Ruiz, assuming Wilder beats Helenius
    - Joyce and Parker are both dropped entirely (not even present in the top 40), presumably because they’re fighting for the WBO interim which is viewed as a “world title”
    - Kabayel drops outside of the top 15 (to #16), maybe a sign that Fury-Kabayel is off the table now that the Joshua fight looks likely?
    - Charr is #19, although if he were to fight Fury next, I have no doubt the WBC would move him up to the top 15 (same goes for Kabayel)

    WBC, where the rules are made up and the points don't matter.

    Kabayel has been in that #15 spot like a gun to our heads for Fury's whole reign.

    I kinda miss him now.

    What in the blue hell is Wilder doing at number 1 position again?????? First he is in with back to back loses, and second he was supposedly retired and hasn't fought for a whole f***** year. Boxing is killing itself with this s*** giverning bodies that are beyond corrupt.
    It absolutely need a structure like UFC one with the difference of prize money.

    Keep an eye on that. Wait for some random to enter the top 15 ready for the hairy octopus.

    I'm pretty sure the WBC is just pulling heavyweight names out of a hat at this point.

    The Dosser should be 2-3 in his last 5 fights, 2 of those losses, his last 2 fights, via one-sided massacre stoppage, the second of which with the exception of one round where Fury got complacent and walked into a silly shot, via brutal KO.

    Back-to-back brutal one-sided with the exception of one round stoppage losses in his own backyard where everything was stacked in his favour and he's still ranked #1

    We'll see how many times Joshua knocks Fury down.

    We'll see if Joshua can even manage a draw against Fury.

    Fury is the best opponent Joshua will have ever faced.

    Wilder has already fought him three times and successfully defended the title against Fury once.

    Even Fury says Wilder is the second best heavyweight after himself.

    We'll see if Joshua can change his mind.
