Fury, Wilder, Canelo, Usyk, Joshua: Who is the best P4P boxer in the world right now?

  • Zak Leech

After what seemed to be a long 18 months for fans of Tyson Fury, they have finally got to rejoice after his commanding win over Deontay Wilder in the ‘Once and For All’ fight on Saturday.

Fans will recall their previous bout in February of 2020, where the Gypsy King won thanks to a seventh round knockout, gaining the WBC title and ending Wilder’s unbeaten status in the process.

Since, the idea of a rematch between the two giants has been dragged through the courts, with a rematch clause being found in Wilder’s contract despite Fury’s team insisting that it had expired.

Eventually, the third fight was agreed to, but it once again didn’t have its hiccups as it was originally postponed due to COVID-19 spreading in the Brit’s camp.

Finally we got the third instalment, however, and at first, it seemed that Wilder had the upper hand with an aggressive start and dominating the first round. This then started a back and forth within the following rounds with each competitor being able to knock their opponent to the canvas.

From the sixth round onwards, though, Wilder was visibly fatigued and Fury began to dominate, when during the 11th, he managed to finally knock Wilder out for good.

Not only did Fury deservedly win the title of heavyweight champion, he also restored his place on the pound for pound list at third. This was after he dropped to seventh after a fairly inactive year with those around him, such as Oleksandr Usyk and Naoya Inoue, supplying unstoppable performances.


Usyk was able to claim number two spot after his remarkable victory over Anthony Joshua last month, but it wasn’t enough to knock Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez from top spot.
