Top ten heavyweights in boxing ranked following Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury draw, featuring Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte

Tyson Fury has shaken up boxing’s heavyweight division – and not for the first time.

After initially displacing long-reigning ruler Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, the Gypsy King spent two-and-a-half years out of the ring, but is now well and truly back in the mix having gone toe-to-toe with WBC champion Deontay Wilder on December 1.

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder’s fight was declared a draw

As far as most observers (including us) could see, Fury defeated Wilder by a score of around 115:111 or 114:112 and should now be a two-time heavyweight world champion.

Instead, the three ‘wise’ men in control of the decision scored it 114:112 (Fury), 115:111 (Wilder) and 113:113 – resulting in a split draw which meant the champion retained his title.

Elsewhere, unified king Anthony Joshua has picked up the other three belts and had quite clearly established himself as the division’s number one in Tyson Fury’s absence.

However, Fury is not absent anymore.
