Tommy Fury will officially be ranked by the WBC after his victory over Jake Paul.

The sanctioning body revealed before the clash last Sunday in the Middle East that Paul would be world-ranked should he win.

Fury wasn’t mentioned in that initial statement – and fans will take from that what they will – but it was later confirmed the honor applied to him too.

He is now 9-0 with four quick finishes and has now been given a top-40 ranking by the World Boxing Council.

Mauricio Sulaiman, the organisation’s president, confirmed this to the DAZN Boxing Show and ‘TNT’ will be added to the rankings in the cruiserweight division, despite him previously fighting as high as light-heavyweight (175lbs) and with the fight against YouTuber Paul being at 185 pounds.

“Well, the new ranking will come next week and, yes, he will be ranked,” Sulaiman stated. “The WBC has 40 fighters ranked per each division. And what I said personally was that the winner would be ranked, and I didn’t mention any number at all, any position at all.

“So, the rankings committee will meet over the beginning of the month and make the assessment.”

It remains to be seen what Fury does next –– or whether Jake Paul will return –– but it appears that it will be onwards and upwards for the 23-year-old, who has the opportunity to earn more money than most world champions after the pair leveraged their followings to bring a different audience to the sport.
