IBF published ratings of heavy weight champions. At first sight jumps right on you absence of Vitaly Klitschko in WBO/WBA/IBF/IBO versions. Last year he had third place, but in the end he was excluded. The reason is simple - officially known Vladimir will have revenge match with Tyson Fury, and neither he wins or loses he wouldn’t be on the list of IBF.

If Ukrainian wins he`ll return his WBA/WBO/IBO belts, but that’s wouldn`t get him back to IBF – champions have no right to be on the list of two boxing agencies. In case Vladimir loses revenge match that would be the end of his career.

The first place in the least owns Ukrainian Vyacheslav Glazkov.

After the defeat Klitchko seriously went down in the rating of the best boxers of the world.
