Two-time world champion Anthony Joshua has entered the WBC heavyweight rankings ahead a potential all-British showdown with champion Tyson Fury.

The British-Nigerian has been inserted at Number 6, following successive defeats to Oleksandr Usyk, who retained the WBA, IBF and WBO belts by split decision in last month’s rematch in Saudi Arabia.

Fury, who knocked out Dillian Whyte at Wembley in April, had been open to an undisputed clash against Usyk, before learning the Ukrainian would not be ready to box again until 2023.
