TYSON FURY is the best heavyweight boxer in the world, according to the Ring Magazine’s latest rankings.
WBA, IBF and WBO king Anthony Joshua, 30, has been beaten to the spot by his British rival.
Fury, 31, cemented his spot at the top of the division when he dethroned Deontay Wilder in February.
AJ is in second place, but this could all change when the pair lock horns next year.
The British rivals have agreed to fight each other TWICE in 2021 to unify the division.
Fury, also known as the Gypsy King, remains unbeaten after 31 professional bouts.
AJ suffered a shock defeat to 25-1 outsider Andy Ruiz Jr last summer, but has now returned to winning ways.
The Watford-born bruiser boasts a record of 23 wins including 21 KO’s and one defeat.

And the controversy in the Ring Magazine’s latest 10 top rankings does not stop there.

Whyte’s only career defeat came against Joshua back in 2015 – leaving him with a record of 27-1.
The Body Snatcher has been the WBC’s mandatory challenger for near on 1,000 days – but is yet to get his shot at the title.
Wilder has it all to prove when he comes up against Fury for the third and final time in December.
The first bout ended as a draw, but the rematch proved the Gypsy King was a level above his rival.
Luis Ortiz is in fourth while Ruiz Jr did enough with his one win over AJ to make fifth.
Russian hardman Alexander Povetkin is next in line ahead of showdown with Whyte.
Joseph Parker, Michael Hunter, Oscar Rivas and Kubrat Pulev make up the rest of the top 10.
AJ is set to lock horns with Pulev before he gets the green light to take on Fury in the Battle of Britain.
