After Oleksandr Usyk won the World Boxing Super Series, The Ring improved his position in the world best boxers ranking regardless of the weight category.
Having beaten Gassiev in Moscow, the Ukrainian boxer rose to the fourth place in a prestigious list.
Gennady Golovkin, a Kazakh professional boxer, tops the ranking. Vasyl Lomachenko, another Ukrainian champion, is on the second place. American Terence Crawford got the third place.
Earlier, Ukraine's Oleksandr Usyk made it to Rank 7 in the top 10 list of BoxRec portal.
Additionally, British Tony Bellew might be Usyk’s next opponent. The Ukrainian will probably need to go up to heavyweight for this fight.
Usyk came into possession of all four heavyweight straps: WBC, WBO, WBA and IBF. Also, the Ukranian took a Muhammad Ali trophy as a winner of the Super Series.
