Fury vs Joshua: WBC Explains AJ Ranking, Approved for Fury Fight

by Kunle Awosiyan

Anthony Joshua has entered the WBC rankings “on his merits” and would be approved as a challenger for Tyson Fury, confirmed WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman.

Sulaiman explained why Joshua had gone straight into their world heavyweight top 10.

With negotiations ongoing for Joshua to take on Tyson Fury in all-British heavyweight clash, Joshua’s new ranking is another key step towards him challenging Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion.

Sulaiman has explained that the rating means Joshua is now eligible to fight Fury for their heavyweight title.

He maintained too that Joshua has been included in the WBC’s rankings as recognition for his achievements.

Although Joshua failed to win back the WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles when he lost his rematch with Usyk, that defeat has actually freed him up to challenge Fury for the WBC belt.
