10 December 2019: We figured there’d be real changes at the top of the Heavyweight division and there was. Anthony Joshua didn’t demonstrate a “masterclass” -for an example of that, see James Toney’s performance against Iran Barkley- but he was effective against a heavy-handed combination puncher with heavy feet; that is, he kept him disciplined from a distance, didn’t engage for long, and circled around him. More importantly, Joshua overcame that old bugaboo that is an indication of real character: he overcame his own demons in defeating the man who humiliated him only six months earlier.

Andy Ruiz Jr. demonstrated a cliche. He failed to properly train and assumed that AJ was too shell-shocked to ever be a threat again. He was wrong and regrets it. Ruiz went from #1 to #4. Anthony Joshua moves up from #4 to #3. Some members disputed that and figured that logic says that AJ should be #1. But AJ was knocked out six months ago against a fighter who, this time around, did nothing to prove he wasn’t just a flash in the pan. The best two heavyweights in the world are Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury. That seems pretty clear in the aftermath of Joshua-Ruiz 2. The winner of Fury-Wilder 2 will become the true heavyweight champion of the world.

Chris Eubank Jr. has exited the Super Middleweight division. Fedor Chudinov beat out Rocky Fielding, the early favorite, and is now #10. At Middleweight, Jermall Charlo moves up from #5 to #4 after stopping Dennis Hogan. At Jr. Middleweight, Erickson Lubin returns to #10 after getting bumped out just last week. Kell Brook (#9) is inactive. ***
