Tyson Fury Removed From BoxRec Heavyweight Rankings

Former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury removed from the popular boxing records and statistics website following Fury relinquishing his titles last week.

Fury voluntarily gave up his belts last week after an announcement that he will now look to get his mental health back on track and will be taking an indefinite time out from the sport.

The status of his titles and who will fight for them is currently up in the air, with recent reports suggesting a showdown in New Zealand between Joseph Parker and Andy Ruiz Jr could take place for his WBO belt, while his WBA (super) title has been mooted as a part of a unification for the potential Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko showdown.

BoxRec’s latest heavyweight rankings without Fury read as follows:


A list that makes for interesting reading.

It is not known exactly yet when Fury will return to boxing, but last week his uncle and trainer Peter noted that he has been improving all the time and responding well to the treatment he has received.

He went on to say that Tyson could be okay again in a couple of months and a comeback fight for the man from Manchester could even happen as early as March or April of next year.
