Before British fighter Tyson Fury's victory over Wladimir Klitschko on November 28, Klitschko was ranked third on the TBRB pound-for pound ratings.

At (64-3) with 53 KO's, a long title reign with most of the relevant Heavyweight world titles and with a winning streak in the 10 year neighborhood, Klitschko held a top 5 spot in the rankings spot for quite some time.

Well, the “Furious” effects are in, and Klitschko has not only fallen out of the TBRB Top 5 rankings, he has plummeted right out of the Top 10.

The question is did Tyson Fury take his place? If not Fury, who is the latest fighter to step into the TBRB Top 10 pound for pound rankings?

In other news from the latest rankings, the recent Showtime bout between James DeGale and Lucien Bute for the IBF World title has impacted the Super Middleweight rankings, as DeGale won a unanimous decision to retain his belt against a Bute that most observers feel fought his best fight in years.

And finally, Akihiko Honda's event at the Xebio arena in Japan this past November 28th featured the WBC World titles in play in both the Light Flyweight and Super Flyweight categories.

Yu Kimura took the Light Flyweight belt from seasoned champion Pedro Guevara, and Carlos Cuadras defended his Super Flyweight belt against Koki Eto in a pair of matches that changed their divisional rankings.
