Tyson did enough on the scorecards to defeat Fury Francis Ngannou By split decision, but his disappointing performance, which included being knocked out in Round 3, our panelists dropped him from four places to number one. 10 in the latest ESPN pound-for-pound rankings.

Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) fought Ngannou (0-1 in boxing) in a 10-round boxing match in October. 28 in Saudi Arabia, but his WBC world title was not on the line. Fury is scheduled to fight Oleksandr Usyk in December. 23, to unify four major heavyweight titles, has been pushed back to February due to minor cuts Suffered by Fury on his forehead and outside his left eye.

ESPN boxing commentator Joe Tessitore said of Fury’s omission from his top-10 list, “Tyson Fury looked his worst in a recent championship run against a strong contender in Francis Ngannou.” “I cannot support this version of Fury on the P4P list.”

Boxing trainer and commentator Teddy Atlas agreed, saying that Fury’s lack of preparation and unpreparedness should have him down to the count of three. 8 in his list.

“While I chalk it up in part to Fury not being mentally prepared or aware of what he’s facing, Ngannou is far better than he or anyone expected and an overall bad night for him, there were still technical glitches that showed through,” Atlas said. Dr. “And if I’m going to be fair and consistent on the side of a process to judge what we judge here, the performance is important and he has to at least drop some spots.”

Mike Coppinger, Ben Baby, Timothy Bradley Jr., Joe Tessitore, Teddy Atlas, Nick Parkinson, Eric Raskin, Michelle Joy Phelps, Claudia Trejos, Bernardo Osuna, Eric Woodyard, Christina Poncher, Bernardo Pilatti, Charles Moinadrihan, Salvadorihan’s Panel, Jim Giroli, Michael Mascaro, Aladdin Freeman, Victor Lopez and Damian Delgado Averhoff shared its votes.
