Anthony Joshua falls to fifth place in WBA rankings

Anthony Joshua, a former WBA heavyweight champion, has dropped to fifth place in the latest World Boxing Association rankings.

Joshua lost his belts to Oleksandr Usyk in September this year but is due for a rematch with the Ukrainian southpaw in 2022.

Usyk’s dominance in the fight may have contributed to WBA’s decision to drop Joshuia’s ranking among the top 10 heavyweight fighters.

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, who lost his title to Tyson Fury, is ranked at number six.

Daniel Dubois is ranked number one, while Michael Hunter occupies the second spot.

Robert Helenius and Hughie Fury are in third and fourth place respectively.

Interestingly, Usyk is not ranked in the top 10.
