Boxing Rankings

28 Sept 2021 – Former Cruiserweight King and now Heavyweight contender Oleksandr Usyk, scored a thrilling upset against the #1 ranked Anthony Joshua and launches himself up from his #10 ranking to #1. Is he now the “heavyweight champion of the world”? Of course not; Tyson Fury is. Usyk did, however, assure the boxing world that he is a serious threat in the division as he employed a high-energy strategy to slip Joshua’s shots and counter, especially with a straight left that landed often enough to discourage Joshua from mounting any kind of a sustained attack. Usyk took a unanimous decision (and you can bet that every fair-minded fan was holding his/her breath before the decision was announced). Usyk’s power, which has been rightfully questioned in this division, was enough to stun Joshua a few times and even hurt him.
