Anthony Joshua Moves Down To Fifth In WBA Rankings | MarvelTvUpdates

Former WBA heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, has dropped to fifth in the latest World Boxing Association rankings after his loss to Oleksandr Usyk.

Joshua was defeated by Ukrainian heavyweight newcomer, Oleksandr Usyk in September. However, they have both agreed to a rematch billed for 2022.

Reports indicate that Usyk’s dominance in the fight and how the former champion performed, may have contributed to the governing body’s decision to drop his ranking among the top 10 heavyweight fighters.

In preparation for his rematch, Joshua has been on a tour of gyms in California and Texas, with hopes to improve his fighting.

Should the 32-year-old reclaim his title, the chance opens up for a much anticipated undisputed clash with WBC champion Tyson Fury.

Deontay Wilder, another beaten champion, is in at number six.

The number one ranking is held by Daniel Dubois, with Hughie Fury also placed above Thomas.

Current WBA heavyweight champion, Usyk, is not ranked in the top 10.
