IBF Rankings Update June 2019: Tyson Fury Enters The Heavyweight Top 10

The IBF rankings have been updated and one notable heavyweight made his way back to the rankings.

Former unified champion Tyson Fury is back in the organization's top 10 after beating previously-unbeaten fighter Tom Schwarz on June 15. Fury once briefly held the IBF title when he defeated Wladimir Klitschko back in 2015. But even as Fury entered the heavyweight rankings, a number of former title challengers and champions exited the rankings in several other divisions such as Sullivan Barrera, Yuniel Dorticos, Murat Gassiev and Raymundo Beltran. Fightful has you covered with who went up and down in the IBF rankings.
