The top 10 heavyweight boxers in the world were unveiled by Ring Magazine, excluding Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua in second place

RING MAGAZINE has released its latest top ten heavyweight rankings – and Tyson Fury is missing from it.

Gypsy King, 34, currently holds the WBC title and plans to defend it on December 3 after talks collapsed over a showdown with Anthony Joshua.

He remains unbeaten after beating Dillian Whyte in April – but has no place in Ring Magazine’s latest rankings.

Instead, it’s unified WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO, and Ring Magazine belt holder Oleksandr Usyk who sits at the top of the stack as champion.

The reason for Fury’s omission stems from the fact that he vacated the Ring Magazine title after claiming he retired after his last fight.

This led to the strap being at stake in the rematch between Usyk and Joshua, which the Ukrainian claimed by split decision.

However, Fury has now announced he will return as he approaches an opponent for two months.

Usyk is closely followed by Joshua, who has now lost three of his last four fights, and Deontay Wilder in third place.

The American returns to the ring this month to take on Robert Helenius in his first fight since losing to Fury for the second time.

Fresh off his win over Joseph Parker, Joe Parker is fourth, with the New Zealander sitting seventh.

Former Joshua conqueror and former WBA, IBF and WBO titleholder Andy Ruiz, who recently defeated sixth-seeded Luis Ortiz by unanimous decision, is fourth on the new chart.

Whyte is fifth while Croatia’s Filip Hrgovic (15-0) is eighth.

Undefeated Cuban Frank Sanchez finished ninth.

And Chinese veteran Zhilei Zhang, 39, completes the top ten despite his recent loss to Hrgovic.
