The match, which culminated in Ngannou's dramatic defeat with a powerful right from Joshua, has set the sports community abuzz.

In a thrilling display of boxing prowess, Anthony Joshua, also known as AJ, has surged up the heavyweight ranks, now claiming the second spot in Ring Magazine's esteemed rankings. This follows his spectacular victory over Francis Ngannou, where Joshua's power and precision were on full display, ending the bout with a decisive second-round knockout.


The clash with Ngannou, an MMA giant stepping into the boxing ring, saw Joshua dropping his opponent twice, the final blow coming from a potent right hand that sealed the deal. This victory is particularly significant as it marks Joshua's fourth consecutive win, having previously dominated opponents like Otto Wallin, Robert Helenius, and Jermaine Franklin.

This streak is a strong comeback for Joshua, following his prior defeats to Oleksandr Usyk.

Ring Magazine, a cornerstone in boxing journalism, has recognized Joshua's recent achievements and his dominant performance against Ngannou by moving him up from third to second in their heavyweight rankings. This move reflects not only Joshua's skill and determination but also the dynamic nature of the heavyweight division.

At the top of the division sits Oleksandr Usyk, who retains the Ring magazine title, a position he has held steadfastly since his victory over Joshua in their second encounter in 2022. Usyk's continued dominance poses a challenge to his rivals, including Joshua, who are keen on dethroning the reigning champion.


As the heavyweight division continues to evolve with each bout, the achievements and aspirations of fighters like Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker keep the global boxing community captivated. With the landscape constantly changing, boxing enthusiasts remain on the lookout for the next big fight that could shake up the rankings once again.
