And the unbeaten fighter will retain his place on the list if he maintains his dominance over the American boxer later this year.

Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua will need to step up his game if he intends to overtake his countryman on the rankings as he currently occupies the second position.

The boxer of Nigerian descent was stunned by Andy Ruiz Jr in the summer of 2019 but bounced back about six months later to reclaim his belts from the Mexican-American in Saudi Arabia.

Joshua was scheduled to battle Fury in a unification bout sometime this year but the court suspended the fight and mandated the Gypsy King to honour his trilogy agreement with Wilder.

The Bronze Bomber comes third on the ranking while Dyllian Whyte and Joseph Parker complete the top five boxers in the heavyweight category.
