PROMOTER Frank Warren reckons three of the top five heavyweights on the planet are British – but NONE of them are Anthony Joshua.
Warren told BT Sport Boxing: “The number one for me is a no-brainer, thatâs Tyson [Fury]. I think heâs head and shoulders [above the rest].
“I think the next one is probably [Oleksandr] Usyk and then I would say [Deontay Wilder].
“Then I would say Joe Joyce and I would also put in Daniel Dubois.”
Dubois comes in above Joshua despite failing to take a major scalp in his career as of yet.
The 25-year-old was beaten by Joyce in 2020.
But Warren insisted AJ was not worthy of a place on his list of the world’s top five heavyweights.
When quizzed on his reasons for the snub, Warren pointed out: “Heâs not in the top five of any governing body at the moment, based upon losing two of his last three fights.”
Joshua has in fact lost three of his last five fights, with his other defeat being the shock loss to Andy Ruiz Jr in June 2019.
But the Watford warrior does have impressive victories over Dillian Whyte, Wladimir Klitschko, Joseph Parker and Alexander Povetkin on his CV.
