Fury has done Teofimo Lopez’s shortly after the Americans’ shock defeat to George Kambosos.

The Gypsy King has softened Deontay Wilder the last two times the pair have met where he has been recognized.

But the majority of the judges disagree that he should be there – even though he holds the WBC and Ring Magazine heavyweight titles.

Adam Abramowitz suggested Fury be given 10th place.

He said: “The Ring has had its pound heavyweights before, and I don’t accept the theory that a heavyweight can’t be in P4P discussions.

But Tom Gray – who subscribes to the ‘no heavyweight’ rule – wants other names thrown in the hat.


He said: “One of the Charles? Fulton? Tank? Shakur? Kambosos? Another person? Discuss…”

Diego Morilla supported Gypsy King and said: “I don’t understand why Tyson Fury can’t be our number 10 here.

“He’s got a lot of qualifications and an effective style even if it’s not too pleasing to the eye.”

But Michael Montero hit back: “I’m not opposed to ranking the heavyweights by the pound, but Fury hasn’t done much to deserve P4P in my opinion.

“He killed Wilder twice, but Deontay wasn’t really that great in terms of skill and Tyson was 50 pounds more than him.

“I’m not sure who we’re going to put in number 10, however, no one really separates themselves from the group.

“Is it possible to have Chocolatito? Many people feel [Roman] Gonzalez defeated [Juan Francisco] Estrada, our current number 8, earlier this year. ”


Gray protested: “I’m against Fury breaking into the top 10 simply because he doesn’t need it.

“Hey, Tyson. We know you’re the heaviest weight class in the world and you’ll beat any man alive, but we’ve also got you 10 pounds behind Kazuto Ioka.

“It just didn’t work for me. Usyk is overtaken because he comes up from the cruiser.

“Anyway, if size is letting you down, Michael, Fury can’t, in fact, make your P4P top 10.

“He’ll be 30 pounds heavier than Joshua and 50 pounds heavier than Usyk.

“The same argument applies even if he kills the best on the team.

“I thought Choc beat Estrada, but something went wrong when he re-entered. Anyone else?”

The panel continued to debate but in the end Fury agreed to participate.

Canelo Alvarez remains at the top while Oleksandr Usyk remains second.


Terence Crawford is third from fourth – leapfrog Naoya Inoue.

Brit Josh Taylor and American Errol Spence are the non-movers in fifth and sixth place.

Lopez vacated seventh place with Estrada, Vasyl Lomachenko and Ioka each moving up one spot to fill the gap with Fury completing the top 10.
